The good thing about the famous fjords of Norway is that, they are not exclusive to a particular region or location. Rather, they are found all throughout the country. The most famous and most dramatic however, are largely found in Western Norway, which stretches from Stavanger to Molde. These fjords may vary slightly on their appearance, but they are mostly narrow and surrounded by towering mountains, steep faces of rocks and are extremely deep. The most famous and most photographed of all is the Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The ferry ride to this lovely place offers the best view and experience of this fjord. Ferrying through this fjord is simply breathtaking.
