Sognefjord (Sognefjorden) is the largest and most popular fjord in Norway and the world's 2nd longest. It is located in Sogn og Fjordane county (Western Norway) and stretches 205 km (127 ml) inland from the sea to Skjolden (Luster municipality). The fjord is named after the Sogn district, which covers Norway's southern part.
- The innermost arm of Sognefjord is called Lustrafjord, located in Luster municipality. At its end, there is Skjolden village, which is an access point to the famous Jotunheimen National Park.
- Boats link settlements along Sognefjord and its sidearms. Bigger villages on the fjord and its branches are Ardalstangen, Aurlandsvangen, Balestrand, Flam, Gaupne, Gudvangen, Hermansverk, Hoyanger, Lærdalsoyri, Leirvik, Sogndalsfjora, Solvorn, Vadheim, Vikoyri, Ytre Oppedal.
- Gudvangen is located by Næroyfjord, a branch of Sognefjord particularly popular for its unspoiled nature, and only 300 m (980 ft) across at its narrowest point. Næroyfjord is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Flam village, the Flam Railway climbs 864 m (2,835 ft) up to Myrdal Station in a 20-kilometre (12-mile) distance - the world's steepest unassisted railway climb.
