Sognefjord in a nutshell Winter Tour
The mighty Sognefjord is exceptional all year, but especially during the autumn and winter season. As Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, it extends more than 200 km inland through majestic scenery. Experience the beautiful Norwegian winter by taking the Sognefjord in a nutshell Winter tour!
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. During autumn the fjord and landscape display an array of different colors, while during winter you may even see snow-capped mountains, frozen waterfalls, and scenic wintery forests.
This tour includes a trip by express boat on the magical and sometimes icy Sognefjord, as well as train journeys through spectacular winter nature on the famous Flåm Railway and the scenic Bergen Railway.
The train journey with Flåmsbana offers panoramic views of some of the wildest and most magnificent winter nature in Norway. The boat on the Sognefjord takes about 5 hours and the boat stops in several quaint villages along its route. This gives you a great opportunity to see the "King of fjords" up close - in its "autumn colors" or "winter outfit"!
This tour requires an overnight stay in the village of Sogndal, but you can also choose to extend your journey over several days to really explore winter Norway. We especially recommend adding a night in Flåm, which gives you the opportunity to join in on several fun winter activities.

One last tip: Dress warmly and bundle up - Norway and the fjords can get very cold during winter!
