It is impossible to experience the beating heart of Norway without seeing the breathtaking landscapes of Fjord Norway. Blessed with areas of outstanding natural beauty, scenic cities and idyllic towns, the Norwegian Fjords have a deserved place as one of the worlds greatest natural attractions. Each fjord has its own allure; from the steep, narrow passages of Naeroyfjord to the plunging cliffs of Lysefjord and the UNESCO listed landscapes of Geirangerfjord. Thanks to the warming Gulf Stream and air currents caused by the Coriolis effect, the Norwegian Fjords enjoy a relatively mild climate and remain virtually ice-free.

The climate in Fjord Norway weather is warmer than the latitude might suggest. Temperatures below -10 degrees Celsius are rare. Summer temperatures sometimes reach the upper 20’s, but the city sees temperatures over 30 degrees only a few days each decade.
Fjords are found in locations where current or past glaciation extended below current sea level. A fjord is formed when a glacier retreats, after carving its typical U-shaped valley, and the sea fills the resulting valley floor.
This forms a narrow, steep sided inlet (in Norway, sometimes deeper than 1300 metres) connected to the sea. The terminal moraine pushed down the valley by the glacier is left underwater at the fjord’s entrance, causing the water at the neck of the fjord to be shallower than the main body of the fjord behind it.
Norway is rich in wildlife. Wild berries can be found all over Norway, with the most common being blueberries, cranberries and cloudberries. Bird life is also abundant in the area, with many migratory birds nesting, on the cliffs and mountains in the summer.
