Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway your home away from home

Sogn og Fjordane is a county of Norway and the home of Sognefjord - the largest of the famous Norwegian fjords. The county covers a vast percentage of the central part of the Fjord lands; from Selje in the north to Aurland in the south, and from Solund in the west to Luster in the east. 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.

Things to do in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway

Visiting the fjords is the highlight of many a trip to Norway, and Sogn og Fjordane is the home of the Sognefjord, which stretches for 205km and is the largest fjord in the country, as well as the second largest in the world. Upon your first glimpse of Sognefjord you will be greeted with jaw-dropping views of its steep-sided valleys and narrow inlets, with the sounds of nature the only noise for miles around. If you only ever visit one fjord during your stay, make sure it is Sognefjord.

Mountains and waterfalls can be found in abundance in this unspoilt area, and you are sure to come back with a whole bunch of fantastic photographs to show your friends. National Parks, museums, galleries and sites of historic interest can also be found in Sogn og Fjordane, and the only problem is fitting it all in during your stay.

If you fancy partaking in more active pursuits, you will literally be spoilt for choice in this outdoor adventurer’s paradise. Sailing, fishing, cycling, mountain climbing, hiking and swimming are just a few of the options available; all amongst some of the freshest and cleanest air imaginable.

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.

Outstanding location and property for a getaway holiday

5 of 5
My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we really could not have chosen a better place, 5 stars and so much more. Views of meadows and lakes and snow covered mountains from every room. The owner Lars-Engil lived next door and was very helpful; they built the house 2 years ago and it is stunning – spacious, great décor, very well equipped kitchen – a pleasure to cook in, spotless, even a hot tub, log fire and candles on the patio with mountain views, billiards and darts in the cellar. This house would feel spacious with 8 people no problem as the first floor has its own lounge and kitchen too – great for groups – we hope to take our extended family with us next time and stay the whole holiday here – it is such a good base for day tours around beautiful fjords, lakes and mountains – for example only 8 min drive north on E13 and we were high and driving thorough a winter wonderland at Harklau and beyond, two hours to the coast on the E609. Or walk from the house around the village valley with lakes, woods, and beautiful rapids river only two minutes from the house. So worth the 30 minute beautiful drive from Sande – nearest town and restaurant. Self-catering is easy with a well-equipped locally run store in the village. We have no hesitation recommending this property.....you will not be disappointed with any aspect of your stay and you will want to return.
