What is a fjord? A fjord is a deep, narrow and elongated sea or lakedrain, with steep land on three sides. The longest fjord in the world is Scoresby Sund in Greenland (350 km), but the Western Norway region (Fjord Norway) boasts the next two spots on the list, with the Sognefjord (203 km), and the Hardanger Fjord (179 km).
I used the Norway in a nutshell 1 day tour (here) to get from Oslo to Bergen, while visiting fjords along the way. This tour was really well organised allowing you to experience the Bergen Railway, Flam railway, a cruise from Flam to Aurlandsfjord and on the narrowest fjord in the world- Nærøyfjord, and a bus ride from Gudvangen to Voss. If you have more time and money, I would highly recommend doing more than just this day trip, there are several options on the site to extend your journey. Here are some photos from my mystical experience:
It would be nice to come back in future when there are blue skies. I can imagine a whole new look! Perhaps I’ll find some hiking options in future to oversee the area rather than be low down on the waters.
