The Norwegian Fjords

Norway is undoubtedly known worldwide for its remarkable tourist attractions, such as tranquil arctic landscapes and far-reaching yet beautiful fjords. When we speak of the fjord, our country has a lot to offer.

Possibly the most widely recognized fjords are the Geirangerfjord and the Nærøyfjord – both are UNESCO-listed World Heritage Sites. Collectively known as the West Norwegian Fjords, these natural wonders are spectacular beyond recognition.

Specifically, the Geirangerfjord has two waterfalls, namely the Seven Sisters and the Suitor. Their most noticeable feature is the fact that they face each other across the inlet. Alternatively, the Bridal Veil, another waterfall in the Geirangerfjord, is aptly named due to its thin veil-like appearance.

The Nærøyfjord, on the other hand, is naturally beautiful to see and thus boasts a large number of ferry tours. This inlet has a few things in common with the Geirangerfjord, most notably the surrounding steep mountainsides and waterfalls.

When you navigate along this fjord, you will also get to explore traditional farms and hillside abodes. Additionally, other few Norwegian fjords comprise small but lovely villages, and Bergen happens to be one of them.

In fact, at the heart of this city and municipality in the county of Vestland lies Byfjorden, dubbed the city fjord.
