Fjordkysten and Sunnfjord, Norway

Just north of Bergen in Norway, Fjordkysten & Sunnfjord stretch from the glacier in the east to the fjord and island communities in the west. Centrally in Western Norway, midway between Bergen and Ålesund, the distances are short. Hike in majestic mountain areas in the morning, and enjoy life by the fjord or the coast in the afternoon. Here you will find beautiful untouched nature, plenty of space, thousands of islands, narrow fjords, glaciers, waterfalls and mighty mountains that rise straight up from the sea.

The region has a rich and exciting history, with traces all the way back to the Stone Age. Here you can visit one of the largest rock carving fields in Norway – Ausevika, or the largest stone quarries from the Viking Age and the Middle Ages in Hyllestad. On Sagaøya Kinn, you can visit the fabled Kinnakyrkja from the 12th century. Astruptunet in Jølster and Sogn og Fjordane Art Museum in Førde offer a wide range of artistic impressions, in addition to several galleries and museums in the entire region.

Bring your kayak, bike, mountain boots and fishing rod! Fjord coast & Sunnfjord are made for adventure! Power, energy and full of contrasts. Sunnfjord offers many wild, beautiful and spectacular waterfalls in raw nature!
