Published on : Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Norway’s top travel destinationsNorway’s fjords always remain at the top list of world’s travel destinations and in terms of attracting visitors. National Geographic Magazine recently named Norway’s fjords as “the best unspoiled travel destination in the world.”

 

Fjords are long, narrow passages in the sea bordered by steep cliffs, dug out by glacial erosion during successive ice ages. Norwegian tourism officials say that 47% of visitors to their country visit just to experience the fjords and experience nature. Dozens of cruise ships ply in these fjords. Sognefjord, at 204 kilometers long and 1,200 metres deep, is the deepest and longest one among them.

 
The fjords have amazing natural beauty. At the far end of Sognefjord is the picturesque village of Flaam, and the valley behind is simply breathtaking! Waterfalls come cascading down thousands of metres down the cliffs.

 

June is the best month for visit. At that time of the year there are 23 hours of sunshine. Around the world there are fjords on the coasts of Alaska, British Columbia, Chile, Greenland, Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Labrador, Nunavut, Newfoundland and Scotland. The fjords of British Columbia are also spectacular. It’s truly ‘unspoiled tourism’.
