The Sognefjord: Longest - Biggest - Highest – Oldest

The longest fjord, the Sognefjord, lies in the heart of Fjord Norway and extends to the foot of the Jotunheimen and Jostedalsbreen National Parks. The Jostedalsbreen National Park is home to the biggest glacier in mainland Europe, whose spectacular arms of blue ice extend down into fertile valleys. The Jotunheimen National Park contains the highest mountains in Norway. The Sognefjellet Scenic Route passes through the park, is the highest mountain pass in Northern Europe. Vibrant local communities offer genuine cultural experiences. Urnes Stave Church is the oldest in Norway and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
