Where to go in Western Norway

List of regions

Balestrand

Balestrand is a popular base for exploring Norway's spectacular Sognefjord. The dramatic 200-kilometre-long fjord cuts inland from the Norwegian Sea roughly half way between the west coast towns of Bergen and Alesund and the town of Balestrand has been welcoming travellers for more than 150 years.

Voss

Voss is a picturesque mountain resort in Norway's beautiful western fjords region, which has firmly established itself as a major hub for adventure tourism and winter sports. Overlooking Vangsvatnet Lake and ringed by forested hills, Voss also benefits from its position on the road and rail route b…

Molde

Molde is well positioned for tackling two of Norway's most spectacular driving routes, which can be incorporated into a Western Norway self-drive holiday. The first of these is the Altanterhavsveien - The Atlantic Road - which connects Molde with the town of Kristiansund, a stretch that is especial…

Alesund

The fishing and ferry port city of Alesund is noted for its concentration of Art Nouveau buildings and proximity to the rugged, beautiful western fjords. After a fire in the early 1900s destroyed much of the city, it was rebuilt in the distinctive style of the German Jugendstil movement, as Art Nou…

Geiranger

The village of Geiranger lies tucked away at the eastern end of Geirangerfjord, one of the smallest of Norway's western fjords but also one of its most divine. At the opposite end is the former Viking settlement of Hellesylt, now a tourist town, and the fjord snakes between the two.

Sognefjord

The Sognefjord, lined with pretty farming villages such as Balestrand, is the country's longest and deepest fjord - and one of the main reasons why western Norway is also commonly known simply as ‘fjord Norway'. It's the second-longest fjord in the world and fjord cruises are an unforgettable way t…

Hardangerfjord

The Hardangerfjord is a wide fjord to the southeast of Bergen, dotted with old farmsteads and stretching for 100 kilometres from the sea to the lunar-like Hardangervidda plateau, Europe's largest mountain plateau.

Bergen

Bergen is one of Norway's most popular tourist spots, a charming and laidback coastal city in Western Norway that serves as the gateway to the western fjords. It has a pretty setting, surrounded by seven mountains, and has been an important city since medieval times.

Stavanger

Stavanger is a flourishing port and university town in Western Norway, which dates back to Viking times and then grew in importance when herring fishing, shipbuilding and most recently the oil industry, made it one of Norway's key economic centres.
