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.

It is located in a beautiful area of Western Norway right outside of Bergen. The cabin is literally right on a fjord and has AMAZING views! Jostein has modernized this cabin very well. We picked it, because of it's location and also for the nice bed arrangements. We have two boys, and liked having three bedrooms with two beds in each. The kitchen was so nice and had pretty much everything we needed. We really liked having an easy to use coffee maker too!! And the highlight of the cabin was the hot tub on the deck!! It was the main attraction each night as we winded down from our treks and wanted to reflect on our day. It was very easy to use too. The tv got great stations and many were in English! We enjoyed having high speed internet. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone! The area had so much to see. We used Jostein's maps a lot and we saw so many cool things! We drove all around and there are hiking trails everywhere. In Bruvoll, there is a fun place to go canoeing. The weather was great while we were there, so we stayed outdoors a lot. Bergen is not far and we enjoyed the wharf. It was very cute and educational. Another great self catering cottage from Owners Direct! We are never disappointed.
