Sognefjord on West Coast of Norway59.1N 10.2E
The fjords along the western coast of Norway are highlighted by bright white snow. A fjord is formed when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley by abrasion of the surrounding bedrock.
The longest visible fjord is the Sognefjord (center left), the largest fjord in Norway, and the second longest in the world. Located in Sogn og Fjordane county, it stretches 205 kilometres (127 mi) inland to the small village of Skjolden.
