Sognefjord in a nutshell
The Sognefjord, Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, extends more than 200 km inland to the foot of the Jotunheimen mountains. This area is said to be one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world.
The Sognefjord is called the King of the fjords for a good reason: it is the longest fjord in Norway and the second-longest in the world. The Sognefjorden is enveloped with exceptional natural beauty, tall mountains, waterfalls, and scenic forests.
This Sognefjord in a nutshell tour includes a trip by express boat on the mighty Sognefjord and train journeys through spectacular nature. You will travel on the famous Flåm Railway, by many considered to be the most beautiful train journey in the world. This train ride offers panoramic views of some of the wildest and most magnificent nature in the Norwegian fjord landscape.
You will also experience a ride with the scenic Bergen Railway, Northern Europe's highest stretch of railway running through wild mountain terrain and spectacular fjord landscapes. On the boat ride on the Sognefjord, you travel more or less the entire length of the mighty Sognefjorden!
The tour can be taken as a day excursion or as a longer journey over several days. You can start your trip from Oslo or Bergen and you customize your tour by adding the hotels and activities of your choice.
