Norway’s southern fjords

Impossibly steep-sidedfjords of stunning beauty cut through the jagged coastline of southern Norway. This guide helps you to plan a fjord expedition that involves all the best sites, walks and waterfalls.

SIGHTS

Baroniet Rosendal (baroniet.no; Rosendal)

Norway's only baronial mansion dates back to 1665 and sits on a gentle rise above the town.

The period interiors include a collection of tapestries, an intact library and beautiful examples of Meissen and Royal Danish porcelain. Outside there is a stunning Renaissance rose garden. Admission to the manor includes a guided tour, and in summer there are evening concerts.

Borgund Stave Church ( stavechurch.com/en/borgund; Borgund)

Some 20 miles southeast of Lsrdalsoyri along the E16, this 12th-century stave church was raised beside one of the major trade routes between eastern and western Norway. Dedicated to St Andrew, it's one of the best known, most photographed and certainly the best preserved of Norway's stave churches.

Its simple, inky interior and sublimely rustic altar are deeply moving. Beside it is the only free-standing medieval wooden bell tower remaining in Norway.
