The choice of activities in this stunning part of the world is almost limitless, with the vast majority making the most of the dramatic scenery that the region is world-famous for.

Places to visit on holiday in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway

A popular place to visit in Sogn og Fjordane is the Jostedal glacier, which, at 487km2 is the largest of its type in the north of Europe. The glacier sits in four of the county’s municipalities, namely Luster, Jolster, Stryn and Balestrand.

Luster itself is a popular destination with visitors, as it contains a number of other stunning glaciers, gushing waterfalls and breathtaking fjords – essentially being a miniature version of everything that makes this part of Norway so special. Also within Luster is the Jotunheim National Park, which is rich in flora and fauna and a great place for wildlife spotting.

The far west of the county is marked by the Ustveer lighthouse in Solund. This area of Sogn og Fjordane is well worth a visit, as it is the only municipality in the county that is made up purely of islands – making it popular with those on fishing trips and outdoor sports enthusiasts.

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!

                                                                                            5 of 5

The cabin itself felt spacious and light and airy, with plenty of beds and cupboard space, a good functional kitchen area and plenty of pace for dining or relaxing. The lake in the garden is excellent fun for adults and kids alike, not deep enough to be dangerous but chilly enough to be a challenge! With outdoor tables and terracing, as well as the stream-fed hot-tub, it lends itself especially well to outdoor eating and living, when the weather is kind. The area around the cabin has some great walks in some lovely valleys and places for kayaking/rowing on the lake. The cabin has a real away-from-it-all feel, you can barely see other signs of life from within, but is only a short 5-10 min drive to Sogndal with amenities and a good range of shops. It is also a great base area for exploring further around some of the best areas of fjords and mountains in this area of Norway.
