About The Fjordcoast regional- and geopark
Sognefjorden coastal park is the first park in Norway who will become both a regional park and a geopark. The geology in the park is outstanding and the park is aiming to achieve the Unesco global geopark status. If you want to meet authentic Norwegian coastal culture this is the place to go!
We want to bring together both non-profit and commercial interest and be a collaborative platform that, through long-term collaboration between locals, local businesses, schools, organizations and municipalities, manages the region’s natural and cultural heritage in a sustainable way
The park is located in the westernmost area in Norway, where the Sognefjord, Åfjord, Dalsfjord, Stongfjord and Førdefjord meets the rugged North sea. The best way to get here is to use the waterways, by boat. Ekspressboats from both Bergen and Selje stop at several locatons in the park. You can also get here by car. It’s about 2 hours to drive from Bergen to the ferry at Rutledal that brings you either to Solund or to Hyllestad.
