Norwegian fjords: the best unspoiled travel destination in the world
CCNPIC www.ccnpic.com  By Nancy Wu

Norwegian fjords on World Heritage List UNESCO has now included the fjords of Norway, exemplified by two of them, on its renowned World Heritage List. The Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord now enjoy the same recognition as the Great Wall of China, the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Zambia’s Victoria Falls and the Grand Canyon in USA

Now included are not just the two famous fjords, but also two large, virtually unspoiled areas, each of more than 500 km2. It is worth noting that between them lies Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier on the European mainland. The fjords of Norway were carved out during a succession of ice ages, by the massive forces of the vast ice sheet that once covered most of Northern Europe. Hard bedrock was sculpted at the rate of half a metre every thousand years.

 In 2004 National Geographic Traveler Magazine named these fjords “the best unspoiled travel destination in the world”, and that same year, the respected American newspaper Chicago Tribune included Norway’s fjords on its list “Seven Wonders of Nature”. “More importantly, UNESCO confirms the choice so many travellers make each year, coming to Norway with “the fjords” at the top of their list of things to experience.

Norwegian fjord is perhaps the most spectacular arm of the Sognefjord and the narrowest fjord in the world, at one point only 250 metres with mountains towering 1800 m above its tranquil waters. The Geirangerfjord, farther north, is known for its pristine beauty and magnificent waterfalls. (CCNPIC Nancy Wu)
