Regardless of the season or location, Norwegian nature is exuberant, devouring, and almost to excess. In three quarters of the territory, there is not a single noise except that of the wind, which collides with high mountains and slides on lakes and glaciers. In addition to this "no man's land" of the Far North, there is the Norwegian forest which covers one fifth of the territory. In this vast green space live elks, hares and trolls, small mysterious beings, still so alive in local beliefs, guaranteeing that in Norway nature has not lost any of its magic.
The fjords :
Although you have never set foot on Norwegian soil, you are familiar with the existence of fjords. Undisputed symbols of the country, they are for the most part located in the West. These ancient glacial valleys covered by the sea can be seen on board a small ferry boat. Between harmony and silence, the reflection of the steep cliffs, which flow into the transparent water, seems to be repeated over and over again. The largest fjord is Sognefjord, which stretches inland for 200 km.
