Sogn og Fjordane is a western Norway county with a coastline to the Norwegian Sea. The large Sognefjorden, its numerous branches, waterfalls and lakes mark the county’s landscape — tall mountains, inland, and smaller ones by the coastline, farmlands and astonishing fjords (fjord or fiord is a long and narrow inlet among cliffs or steep sides, which is formed when a glacier retreats).
This county consists mainly of countryside, with its population being very dispersed among the greenish (or white) mountains. It has the largest fjord in the country and the second longest in the world (the Sognefjord or Sognefjorden), the largest glacier in mainland Europe (Jostedal Glacier), and the extraordinary Nærøyfjord - a UNESCO listed fjord area, among many other beauties.
