Fjord Norway is known the world over for iconic mountaintops such as Trolltunga, the Hanseatic wharf Bryggen in Bergen, and the unique Geirangerfjord. But this landscape has so much more to offer than the most famous attractions. There are many more summits to conquer, more unique historical buildings, and many more fjord arms and villages to explore.
This part of the country is like a treasure trove for those interested in history. You can delve into Viking history, local cultural history, and events that took place during WWII. Let us take a drive through Fjord Norway, from south to north!
Sogndalstrand and Helleren
We start our trip south of Stavanger, where we find Sogndalstrand. This is the only village in Norway where the wooden buildings from the 18th¬ and 19th¬ centuries and the cultural landscape are protected by law. Sogndalstrand has a culture hotel, gallery, golf course, traditional grocery shop, fisheries museum, and more.
Helleren in Jøssingfjord is situated close by, which consists of two small wooden houses under a 15-metre deep and almost 20-metre high rock face. Sheltered by this massive overhanging rock, these houses without roof tiles have stood here since the 19th century. Parts of the buildings might actually be even older. Visitors can go into the houses and get an insight into a bygone age.
