The Norwegian Fjords are best known for the stunning scenery and popular destinations offering warm hospitality, exciting activities and a high standard of accommodation. This fly drive holiday encompasses all of these qualities, but also showcases small treasures to be discovered and enjoyed.

The Hidden Fjords itinerary offers the best of both worlds, with time to marvel at the sheer beauty and magnitude of the fjords with its main attractions, but also a chance to sit back and relax in some lovely charming hotels located in peaceful towns, away from the potential crowds the summer season can attract.
The hotels featured offer a very good standard of accommodation and facilities with their own characteristics, friendly atmosphere, warm welcome, personal service and wonderful local cuisine, just some of the key attributes. The locations are an ideal base to explore the fjord areas around Sognefjord, Geiranger, Nordfjord, Alesund and Jotunheimen and all offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature and the outdoor lifestyle with activities available on your door step.
With this flexible self-drive you can either follow our itinerary suggestions or if you wish, amend the duration, resort or hotels to suit your personal requirements.
