Sognefjord – What to See and Do

The Sognefjord, the king of the fjords, is the longest fjord adventure in Norway. The Sognefjord is 204 kilometers long and 1308 meters deep at its deepest. Join a glacier walk on the Nigardsbreen glacier, see the beautiful stave churches. Join a fjord safari, a fjord cruise or experience the Sognefjord in a kayak. Experience the view from Stegastein viewpoint above the Aurlandsfjord. Take a short hike to Mt Molden in Luster and you will see the fantastic view down to the Lustrafjord. The view from Mt Skomakarnipa in Fresvik is perhaps the world´s most insane fjord view. The Austerdalsbreen glacier at Veitastrond is known for being the most beautiful glacier in Europe. The Fjærlandsfjord, Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord, the Årdalsfjord and the Lustrafjord are all branches of the Sognefjord. These side fjords are perhaps even more famous than the Sognefjord itself, which is located in the middle of western Norway, and which is so long that it almost divides Norway in two.
