Lysefjord stretches over 42 kilometres and is located in the south near Stavanger, which is also home to the largest concentration of historical wooden houses in Northern Europe. This fjord is extremely popular due to its natural beauty and popular base jumping cliff of Kjerag and Preikestolen which are found along the passageway.

Geirangerfjord is UNESCO World Heritage fjord that is 15 km long and is located in the Sunnmore region. It is one of the more popular fjords to visit as it is surrounded by steep mountains with abandoned farms that are seen along the way. One of the main attractions is the Seven Sisters waterfall with the Suitor Waterfall directly across from it.

Naeroyfjord is another UNESCO World Heritage Site in Norway. Similar to the other fjords, beautiful waterfalls and glaciers can be seen along the 18 km stretch. To give you a better idea of what it looks like, this fjord was used as an inspiration for Arendelle in the famous Disney movie Frozen.

While Oslofjord may not have the cliff faces and waterfalls that others have, the islands in the middle of the fjord can reach some of the warmest summer temperatures around. The convenient location just outside the capital can also make this 17 km long fjord more attractive.
