Norwegian Fjords

The west coast of Norway is home to the Fjords and Bergen is the gateway to Fjordland. Bergen was founded in 1070 and was originally a Viking settlement - the best known historic site is Bryggen which is a collection of 11th century wooden buildings built along the harbour front.

Geiranger Fjord is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - it is nine miles long and is the most photographed of fjord of them all. This fjord is surrounded by the steepest mountains on the entire west coast, it is very narrow and has foaming waterfalls (Seven Sisters and Suitor) which plunge into the fjord from jagged peaks.  A fjord is formed when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley in the surrounding bedrock and most fjords are deeper than the adjacent sea; Sognefjord, Norway, reaches as much as 1,300metres (4,265 ft) below sea level.

Olden is a peaceful village situated at the end of one of Nordfjord’s arms. Here a lake in the valley has been turned a rich deep green created by the minerals pouring down from the Briksdal Glacier where giant waterfalls make the views spectacular.
