Skjolden - Sognefjord

Welcome to the heart of the Norwegian Fjords. Skjolden is the innermost cruiseport of Norway, located at the head of the longest navigable fjord in the world - Sognefjorden. The approach is via the picturesque Lusterfjord, close to Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier on the European mainland and ends at the foot of the highest mountains in Norway - the Jotunheimen National Park. The fjord is surrounded by several of Norway's major attractions – accessible on short transits!




  1.  Jostedalsbreen National Park

    In Jostedal, where glacier arms stretch down into green valleys, you can view the largest glacier in mainland Europe at close range. Join experienced guides on thrilling walks on the blue glacier ice.
  2.  Jotunheimen National Park

    The Jotunheimen National Park mountains surrounding the fjord are perfect for short walks, hikes, climbing and skiing, and the trails lead you deeper and higher into Norway's most fascinating places.
  3.  Sognefjord

    The world’s longest navigable fjord lies in the heart of the Norwegian fjord country and extends more than 200 km inland. At the head of the fjord you'll find the idyllic village of Skjolden.
  4.  Urnes Stave Church

    Urnes, the oldest of Norway's stave churches, is included on UNESCO's World Heritage List. It was built around 1130 AD, but the distinctive carvings on the north portal are from an even older church.
