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.
