A fjord is a deep, narrow and elongated sea, with steep land on the sides.
The fjords were formed by glacier tongues that through several ice ages have shaped the landscape. A fjord is a U-shaped undersea valley, and this valley is often surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery. In Hardanger some of the Glacier is still found on top of the mountains, the Folgefonna Glacier. We reccomend a combined tour with Fjord Cruise and Glacier visit, this can be done in one day.
A beautiful landscape with snow-clad mountains, blue glaciers, deep gorges, cascading waterfalls and tiny fertile villages strung like glowing green pearls along the fjord line. This extraordinary landscape is today inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. We are ready to take you into the fjord all year around – as close to the nature as you can get!
When all you need is silence, visit a Fjord.
