The Fjords in Norway

Fjords generally refers to large inland rivers. In Norway there is not clear difference between a river and a Fjord.
When we talk about Fjords in the context of Norwegian tourism, we generally refer to the inland freshwaters that during millions of years have eroded the surroudning mountains.

With the erosion, the fjords can become very deep, with the Sognefjord being as deep as 1.300 meters.
Going through the Fjords by ship is a great eperience and one of the finest sceneries in Norway.
To access the Fjords you should first go to Bergen and take ship from there. There are several options ith one of them is by ship to Flam with the option of returning by train.
