Make a holiday rental apartment or house in the Norwegian Fjords, Norway your home away from home

The Fjord regions of western Norway are stunning. Mountains surge vertically upwards from the glass-like stillness of the fjord waters. Consisting of stunning waterways, sheer mountain faces and amazingly white glaciers, Norwegian Fjord holidays are a magical experience, where sport is only a way to explore the most impressive natural wonders in Europe. The Norwegian Fjords have been named on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and not only for the staggering scenery; the traditional lifestyle of people living in this unforgiving terrain is still richly celebrated throughout the year with a range of festivals and events.

Things to do on holiday to the Norwegian Fjords

Sailing in the Norwegian Fjords is an unforgettable experience. Gliding silently through the still waters of the Norwegian Fjords with vast rock faces on either side, blocking out the sun is truly magical, and the silence is unforgettable. Kayaking and canoeing is also a fantastic way to explore the fjords from your moss-roofed cabin in the Norwegian Fjords, and if you are feeling adventurous, you can paddle up the fjord, pull your canoe to shore and walk from there, returning to your canoe to return home as the sun sets.

Walking, mountaineering and climbing are extremely popular on Norwegian Fjord holidays. The landscape, carved by the monumental power of moving glaciers, make sensational walking and climbing terrain, and the Norwegian Trekking Association have over 340 mountain huts scattered around the region if you cannot get back to your Norwegian Fjord accommodation before nightfall or are planning a multi-day hike. You can walk for days without ever coming across another soul, so if it is peace, tranquillity and mind-blowing scenery you are after; the Norwegian Fjords are waiting for your arrival. If you are hoping to take a walking holiday in the Norwegian Fjords, the best window is between June and September.

Glacier walking is an incredibly activity too. You really are spoilt for choice from a Norwegian Fjord property. The Jostedals Glacier is the largest in Northern Europe, and is particularly popular with ice-climbers and serious skiers. Walking and climbing on the glacier is extremely hard work, but clambering between ice crevasses is an awe-inspiring experience.

Skiing holidays in the Norwegian Fjords is not like skiing anywhere else in Europe. There are endless places perfect for skiing, with vast expanses of virgin snow, and vertical runs of almost 2km down to the waters of the Fjords. However, you will have to work for your sport, as there are no ski lifts here!

Places to visit on holiday to the Norwegian Fjords

Sogn og Fjordane is the largest Norwegian Fjord, located right in the heart of fjord country. The fjord is breath takingly beautiful, and no matter how long you stay in Norwegian Fjord accommodation in the area, you can never get blasé about the views. This is one of the few areas where glaciers meet fjords, meaning you can enjoy all that is best about Norwegian Fjord holidays from one location. The national parks are magnificent, and there are plenty of fascinating museums, heritage sites and galleries to view.

Hordaland is the gateway to the Norwegian Fjords, especially the charming city of Bergen with its wooden buildings and rich cultural traditions. Sailing in the Norwegian Fjords often starts from Hordaland, and there is plenty to entertain visitors on holiday in the Norwegian Fjords here.

In the very north of the Norwegian Fjords is More Og Romsdal, one of the most remote, natural and beautiful areas of the fjord lands. Rogaland the southernmost of the fjord counties, has ten cities, and is therefore one of the most populated areas. It is filled with tourist attractions and beaches and is a fantastic place to visit to wet your appetite for Norwegian Fjord holidays.

Having a private pier and two boathouses (one of which we used as a dining room with spectacular views on the waterside) and use of the owner's wooden boat for rowing and fishing was luxurious! We loved the peace,tranquillity and beauty of the local area,especially having great mountain walks on the doorstep! We'd highly recommend this house and area and would love to return one day!

The landlord was there to meet us and filled us in on all the details we needed. The house was well equipped and the views from the house were amazing. We spent a lot of time watching porpoises and the changing mountains depending on the weather. We hired a boat and spent time on the fjord. It was a good half an hours drive to the larger supermarkets in Vik although there was a small shop in Arnafjord about 10 minutes away but it had limited stock and opening hours. Lovely walking nearby. Such a peaceful area. Would really recommend it. Just be aware it's literally at the end of the road so if you are planning any day trips everywhere is quite a long drive away!
