Long & Narrow Fjords In Norway
"Long and narrow" is the essence of a fjord. These especially long and narrow Norway fjords jump off the map and are rare treats to experience.
Dalsfjord (More Og Romsdal)
Hyefjord is a great fjords, that ranks on many of our lists. The fjord itself is qute narrow and vertical, with the opposite bank from the road virtually undeveloped. This makes for great vieiwing at just about any spot on the fjord.
Lysefjord is beautifully long, narrow and sparsely developed. The stunning off-the-charts views from Lysebotn, both at the top and bottom of the road into town, show the verticality of the fjords. View from hairpin-laden road to Lysebotn, just below the main tunnel.
Gryllefjord appears almost man-made on first sight. Deeply aqua-marine, perfectly straight, and long & narrow . . . it is quite a unique sight to behold.
Tengelfjord is the very start of the islands of Lofoten. The drive down to Digermulen provides many great narrow fjord views, especially across the fjord into Trollfjord.
Obviously given the name, it is no surprise to anyone that Naeroyfjord is indeed long and narrow. The effect can best been seen if you get above the waterline (for example via the RImstigen hike, shown here).
The main route ferries across the mouth of Dalsfjord . . . leaving this extremely long and narrow fjord solely to the explorers taking the slow way around to Volda. The drive itself is wonderful, with great scenery and quaint little farming areas such as Steinsvik.
Josenfjord is a nice drive along the Southwestern fjords. Very scenic for this section of fjord country, Josenfjord is peaceful and narrow.
Storfjord really jumps right off the map. A southern spur off the Hardanger fjords, Storfjord is one of the top fjords in Norway. The drive along either side of the fjords goes on-and-on, with stunning views at all spots across the narrow fjord. Fruit orchards line the steep fjord-side slopes, in amongst scenic towns like Lotfhus.
