Sogn og Fjordane is a coastal region in southwest Norway with the longest Norwegian fjord, Sognefjord and the largest continental glacier in Europe, Jostedalsbreen.
The region's main wealth is its amazing landscapes, which include a fragmented coast with numerous bays, peninsulas and islets, mountain plateaus as well as waterfalls and deep mountain valleys.
The Sognefjord, including over 200 km in length, is the place where the region's tourism is concentrated. The fjord can be sailed by boat, boat or canoe. Go fishing in the fjord and in the open sea. On the banks of the fjord there are scenic roads and hiking trails.
An equally fascinating place is the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, which you can climb under the guidance of a guide. There is the Glacier Museum in Fjærland, which presents the topics related to glaciations and protection of glaciers and their role in nature in an accessible way.
The most important monuments of the region include wooden, medieval stave churches. They can be admired, among others in Norgund, Undredal, Hopperstad and Urnes. The latter is inscribed on the UNESCO list.
A stay in Sogn og Fjordane would not be complete without a ride on Norway's most scenic rail route from Flam to Myrdal. It is one of the steepest railways in the world running on tracks with normal spacing.
