Fly to Fjord Norway

Beautiful fjords stretch into the country. Bright green pastures cover the mountain sides. Waterfalls and peaks call out to you.

Western Norway is intensely beautiful. Glaciers that never melt, cities that never sleep, and outdoor experiences you will never forget.

But Western Norway is also a friendly place. The charm of the coast and its traditional foods will make you feel welcome. There are cities, towns and villages – whatever you prefer, you will be comfortable here.
 

Activities in Fjord Norway

Western Norway is where the ocean meets the mountains. Tourist attractions are lined up like a string of pearls. Along the coast are opportunities for fishing, kayaking and island hopping. Just remember, the North Sea can be unpredictable!

If you are comfortable in the mountains, then you are in luck. This is just the region for you. Hardangervidda and Jostedalsbreen (Jostedal Glacier) National Park, Sunnmørsalpane (the Sunnmøre Alps) and Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) await you.

But remember to take some time to relax. Sit and bask in the sun with some Hardanger plums and just enjoy life.
