Sognefjorden, Sogn og Fjordane

4.7
Cruise into the narrower arms of Sognefjorden for sublime vistas of untouched nature and a dramatic landscape featuring abrupt cliffs and gushing waterfalls. Stretching 205 km (127 mi) inland from the ocean, this is the largest fjord in Norway and the longest ice-free fjord in the world. The innermost fjord's arm, Lusterfjord, is notable for its stave churches and the green-colored water that comes from melting glaciers. Grab a seat on a deck of a boat as the hamlets, farms, and orchards glide past, all against a backdrop of shoreline and towering mountains. Boat trips are expensive, so consider bringing your own food and drinks. By using our Vikoyri trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Sognefjorden and other attractions in Vikoyri.

  • Surrounded by high mountains and fjords, this particular fjord is the country's longest and also deepest. The scenery along the fjord is just too good.  more »
  • In Gudvangen take the boat that goes towards Kaupanger and cross the Fjord Norway's longest and most spectacular ... pure nature. The ferry costs much less after 18 and considered that at that hour is still day advice to take advantage of it. You can take your ticket online. Seagulls around, the water clear, silence, greenery and waterfalls along the rock as a backdrop to the most fascinating cruise ever done. Approaching to the goal the fjord widens. On the boat as a small bar but no big deal. Unique experience! Just do it.
