Sognefjord

Billed as the longest, biggest, highest, deepest and oldest fjord in Norway, exploring Sognefjord is the focus of our Norway trips this summer.

Our first night in Sognefjord, the pretty town of Leirvik

We set sail from Bergen 3 days ago and have just entered the fjord. The approach from both north and south are protected by a series of islands so we had some intricate wiggling to do today

Whilst the main part of Sognefjord is extremely deep, there are many smaller, narrower fjords branching off with small towns and villages at the end. Tonight we are in Bofjord and alongside the pontoon in front of the pub in the town at the north end, Leirvik.

Leirvik, right in front of the Kro (pub)!!

Can’t wait until tomorrow when we head further into the fjord – Glaciers, Waterfalls and more await us.
