Epic mountains, dazzling glaciers and a coastline carved into thousands of fjords, all on Norway’s rugged western shore.

Fertile, fractal and wreathed in Norse myth, Norway’s western fjords are a primal, ancient landscape. Steep mountains meet steel-blue water and glaciers slither along valley floors, as massive as Jörmungandr.

With an endlessly folded coastline, sky-scraping mountains laced with silvery waterfalls and innumerable lonely islands, this is a land of raw wilderness, stave churches and charming villages. It’s also home to some of the country’s most compelling cities, including laid-back Bergen.

Our specialists can help you delve into this majestic region, no matter what aspect piques your interest. You might kayak through blue-black waters between towering mountains in Sognefjord, looking for the porpoises, seals and myriad birdlife that make their homes here. You can choose to visit the timeless communities in small traditional villages to explore their distinctive local traditions or brave the winter cold to watch the northern lights dance across the dark sky.

We can point you toward the best ways to learn more about the region’s rich Viking heritage, help you to explore the Folgefonna Glacier National Park with an expert guide, or arrange for you to explore inland with a cycle trip down a valley toward Flåm.
