THERE ARE MANY MORE

Another fine example is the Nærøyfjord, one of the world’s narrowest fjords. In 2004, it was titled “the world’s top unspoiled travel destination” by National Geographic, and it’s even inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

There are so many more fjords worthy of mention, enough to fill several books. Hjørundford surrounded by the Sunnmøre Alps is a hidden gem, while Hardangerfjord is particularly attractive in spring when it’s fringed by apple orchards in full blossom. Even the tiniest of fjords like Trollfjord among the picturesque Lofoten Islands, are special and unique.
