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.
