NORWAY’S GREATEST FJORDS

A Classic journey into the majestic fjords of Norway, which reflects the beauty and grace of Norway. The route leads over grandiose fjords, past roaring waterfalls and unique viewpoints to three of Norway’s most famous fjords. 

The Hardangerfjord is idyllically situated in the “Orchard of Norway” as the area around the fjord is called due to the mild and fertile climate and is among other things known for the spectacular cliff formation, Trolltunga. The UNESCO protected Geirangerfjord captivates with its steep rock formation and almost vertical waterfalls such as “The Seven Sisters” and “Bridal Veil”. With a length of 204 meters, the Sognefjord is considered the “King of the Fjords”. It is the longest fjord in Norway and the second longest in the world.

The fjords can be experienced from the water on two impressive boat excursions that are planned on this tour.
