Read more about Nordfjord

This enchanting region is named for the stunning, 66-mile fjord — sixth-longest in Norway —that stretches inland from the sea to the charming village of Loen, home to some of the country’s oldest farmsteads. 

The Nordfjord’s scenic shores, strung with charming fishing hamlets founded in Viking times, are also lined with natural wonders like soaring peaks, cascading waterfalls and glistening glaciers. We have icy blue Jostedalsbreen, in fact, to thank for the Nordfjord itself. Europe’s largest glacier not only carved this must-see landscape eons ago; its runoff still feeds the fjord’s waters today. Glimpse a glacier for yourself with a guided tour of Nigardsbreen, one of its more accessible branches.

Nordfjord’s also home to its own breed of horses, the Norwegian Fjord Horse. Small but sturdy and smart, this longtime staple of local mountain farms is now a surefooted, safe way to explore breathtaking fjord and mountain trails. At the coast, Nordfjord draws surfers to seaside spots like Hoddevik and Ervik by the Stad peninsula, where they hang 10 all year in crystal-clear waters — and the shadow of sky-piercing, 1,000-ft peaks.

Vacations really do hit new heights in Nordfjord, home to marvels like Hornelen, Europe’s highest sea cliff, at 2,822 feet. Then there’s Mount Hoven, with a pick of paths for hikers of all abilities. The Loen Skylift soars skyward to the summit on a 5-minute trip. Atop Hoven, more than 3,300 feet high, hikers and riders alike soak in the unforgettable views. And over at Stryn, skiers ply the mountainside pistes — even in June!

The weather in Nordfjord

The area’s geographical diversity, from coast to mountain, leads to varied weather, from sunny days along the fjord to sudden weather shifts in the highlands.
