About the region
In Sognefjord you will find many of Norway's major attractions, such as three well known national parks, two UNESCO sites, national scenic routes, national information centres and more.
Situated on the border between Eastern and Western Norway, with a combination of coastal and continental climate, the inner reaches of the Sognefjord enjoy a very good climate with relatively mild winters and little rain in the summer.
In the Jostedalsbreen National Park, where glacier arms stretch down into green valleys, you can view the largest glacier in mainland Europe at close range, and join experienced guides on thrilling walks on the blue glacier ice.
Unique museums, art galleries, heritage sites and stave churches can be enjoyed throughout the region. Urnes Stave Church in Luster is the oldest in Norway and features on the World Heritage List. Experience true Norwegian culture first hand!
Explore the region where the rivers never run dry. Whether you travel by boat, train, car or on foot you can see waterfalls cascading down steep mountains. You can also enjoy fishing in wild rivers or deep, calm mountain lakes.
The Jotunheimen National Park and the mountains surrounding the fjord are perfect for short walks, mountain hikes, climbing and skiing, and the trails will lead you further, deeper and higher into Sognefjord's most fascinating places.
