Sognefjord - on Unesco´s World Heritage List
The region where this deep fjord meets the glaciers and Norway’s highest mountains is considered one of the world's most beautiful travel destinations.
- Norway’s longest and deepest fjord
- 1,308 m deep
- 204 km long
- The Nærøyfjord is an arm of the Sognefjord and is included on Unesco´s World Heritage List
The King of fjords extends 204 km (127 miles) inland, has a maximum depth of 1,308 meters and the mountains surrounding the fjord tower to heights of 2,000 meters. The inner end of the Sognefjord is covered by Jostedalsbreen, the biggest glacier in continental Europe.
The Sognefjord is the second longest fjord in the world, and it also the most beautiful and dramatic fjord. The glaciers on the top of the mountains, down the steep mountainsides to green farmland and deep fjords will all make indelible impressions.
The Sognefjord is included in the Sognefjord in a nutshell and Norway in a nutshell® round trips.
