Introduction

Western Norway is a stunning juxtaposition of sophisticated Scandinavian cities and stirring landscapes of deep soaring fjords. On this suggested itinerary, discover the extraordinary west and its King of the Fjords, the Sognefjord. The sheer immensity of this fjord has ranked it as not only Norway’s deepest, but also the second-longest fjord in the world. Gaps in its towering walls house quaint villages, orchards and farms. Explore these amazing landscapes by way of train, kayak and boat, in addition to visiting two of Norway’s most amazing cities, Oslo and Bergen.
