Hi! Closest is approx 1 hour plane ride from Oslo Airport. Either Hardangerfjorden (flight to Haugesund) or Sognefjorden (flight to Sogndal) or Nordfjorden (Sandane). I’m from the latter but the two first are maybe a bit better. :)

Helli Magnus!
Appreciate your reply, it helps a lot!
If you’re planning on going north, there are some spectacular fjords around Lofoten as well. They are smaller than on the west coast, but also less visited. Troll fjord is beautiful.

Thanks, Britt!
Britt,
How is this tour organised? I read it is kind of self-tour?
Hi. The most famous fjords are on the westcoast of Norway from Stavanger to Bergen. You have the hardanger fjord.

Most nature and fjords are located there.
There are some south of Oslo and towards sweden (Fredrikstad and Halden), witch are more local.

You can also visit Tønsberg, but this area is considered as a part of the Oslo fjord.

Hope this helps.

Hi Thomas!
Thank you for your quick reply!
This info is really useful for me, I do like the nature & would like to enjoy it being in Norway !:)
Np :)

Forgot to mention: Either fly, use bus or train to Bergen from Oslo.

From Stavanger to Bergen its either bus or plane.
Oslo is in the east of tht country. You need to go the west to see the fjords. Bergen is a good starting point to discover the fjords. From Oslo you can go to Bergen by plane (about 1 hour) or train (about 8 hours)

Hello!
Thank you a lot for your tip. It really helps me to plan my trip :)
The large fjords are all on the west coast. I would suggest to take the train to Bergen. The railway Oslo-Bergen goes over the mountains and it’s beautiful. From Bergen I assume there are several tour operators. Or you could put something together yourself, combining trains/buses/ferries. Maybe hire a car :-)
