Better than Milford Sound, and a lot closer!

Vast fjord with fantastic scenery at every turn. Even in poor weather it looked impressive, but in sun it must be jaw dropping. Having visited New Zealand's remote Milford Sound... read more

Vast fjord with fantastic scenery at every turn. Even in poor weather it looked impressive, but in sun it must be jaw dropping. Having visited New Zealand's remote Milford Sound we found this much more impressive and it's hard to believe it's so close to home in the UK. We used a ferry to see everything.

It was beautiful and clean and a boat ride was the best way to see the fjord but coming from Canada, nothing we haven't seen before. Probably not the most Canadian politically correct comment to state but it's the truth.

To avoid the hassle of taking the Norway-in-a-Nutshell tour, we decided to rent car from Bergen and drive for two and a half days around Sogne and Hardanger Fjords. It was a great experience and costs only a little more than a NIN tour for two. Of course, if you consider that we got to see a great deal more,... More

Having traveled from Bergen to Flam by car last month, I'd highly recommend bypassing much of E16 and take the "scenic route" Fv7 along the north shore of Hardangerfjord. While not quite as dramatic at Sognefjord or Geirangerfjord to the north, it is a great introduction to the region. Beautiful & bucolic, with interesting stops and vistas along the way.... More

Everyone says that a fjord trip is a must do event. We agree! Even though the weather was less than ideal, the views, the scenery, the environment were simply breathtaking. Money well spent for the entire trip. Our pictures are astonishing. Don't miss out.

This was an organised excursion from the P & O ship on the Norwegian fiords trip. The excursion was for a full day and we were expecting lunch to be included. The area its self is very beautiful and the guide was extremely helpful and knew his audience well and was very amusing. The only problem was the lack of... More

We took the ferry from From to Bergen. Most spectacular views of nature I have yet to see. The pic were taken with my camera. It does not due the fjords justice.

I had booked Norway in a Nutshell online months before we arrived. When we checked at the tourist office for other things to go do I mentioned that we had already purchased our tickets and for which day. The tourist office employee stated that there was a landslide and they were cancelling that trip we should book something else. It... More

I can judge only the part between Norheimsund and Kvanndal. The route offers magnificient views of steep slopes of surrounfing mountains. Small villages crammed up to the fjord are enchanting. If you can choose whether to take bus or train between Bergen and Voss, go by bus.
