The Fjord Explorer

While staying in Scandinavia, you shouldn't miss a chance to visit the Fjords in Norway, surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and lush, green vegetation. In Western Norway, there are fantastic opportunities for active leisure. The fjord area is like a great playground for those who love activities and for those who just love beautiful nature.
