Stay beside emerald green fjords, blue glaciers and mighty waterfalls, on idyllic farms or high up in the mountains surrounded by jagged peaks. Accommodation providers by the Sognefjord have played host to both rich and poor adventurers for hundreds of years, so the area can offer a great variety of accommodation.
Sleeping in sumptuous, historical rooms and eating local gourmet food is an experience in itself, but in several places, hosts go even further to make sure your stay is a unique experience. Why not join your hosts on a cycling trip or a mountain hike, sleep in a tent in an orchard, pick raspberries for dessert, bottle feed lambs, be waited on while you sit in an outdoor hot tub or join your host in a singsong around the piano?
