These fjords are deep and narrow, surrounded by high, steep mountains with snow-covered tops and both small and huge waterfalls. Here and there you see small farms, some by the fjords and some even high up in the mountains, evidence of people having lived and survived here for centuries.
Bergen is the perfect startpoint for exploring the fjords. See the large selection of fjord tours on offer from Bergen.
