“Longest!, highest!, deepest!” are words often used to describe the Sognefjord, and it’s easy to see why. Known as the ‘King of the Fjords’, it’s pretty impressive! It is indeed the longest fjord, has the highest mountains and the deepest waters of any fjord in Norway.

You have the opportunity to explore the region at your leisure - taking a fjord cruise, driving through the spectacular scenery and riding on one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys for an unforgettable holiday in Norway’s famous fjords.

The itinerary is totally flexible depending on your requirements. Please call our Sales team to discuss your personal requirements.
