An exciting and varied road trip taking you through the best highlights of Fjord Norway, with Bergen as a starting point. On this journey, you will experience beautiful mountain scenery, magnificent canyons, sea and fjord views, and plenty of opportunities for activities along the way.
This is a trip where you'll experience Norway's deepest and longest fjord, the Sognefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the unique landscape - high mountains surrounding the fjord and small mountain farms clinging to the steep mountainsides.
With your own car or a rental car, you have complete freedom. To fully experience and take advantage of this scenic route, take a fjord cruise, a Flåm Railway trip or some active natural experiences. A hot tip is taking the car ferry between Kaupanger and Gudvangen - a very scenic ferry ride!
