The Sogne fjord: The world's second longest fjord!

This fjord is actually impossible to miss on our trips! The Sogne fjord is the longest and deepest fjord in Norway, and we will both be hiking and taking you out on the fjord on ferries to experience the fjord in a boat. At some of our trips you can also jump into a kayak for a safari experiencing the magnificent nature and spectacular wildlife.
