Skjolden, Norway

At the head of Sognefjord, Norway’s longest at 120 miles, lies a charming village surrounded by the Jotunheimen National Park, home to Norway’s tallest peaks, the dramatic Feigumflossen waterfall, and Jostedalsbreen, a cluster of dramatic glaciers. Nearby, visit the 12th-century Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a splendid example of the Norwegian genius for woodworking. Scenic cruising of Lustrafjord and Sognefjord add grandeur to both your approach and your departure, bathed in the lingering daylight of the northern summer.
