Boating at Melkevollsbreen, Nordfjord, Sogn and Fjordane, West Norway
Nordfjord ("northern fjord" in Norwegian, as opposed to "Sunnfjord"), a fjord and a traditional district in the county of Sogn og Fjordane in Western Norway, is the sixth longest fiord in Norway, 106 km long, and it includes the rough coastline of Stadhavet and Jostedalsbreen glacier, the largest glacier in mainland Europe.
It also contains Hornindalsvatnet, Europe's deepest lake at 514 meters, and the specially scenic glacier Briksdalsbreen.
Nordfjord also includes areas with year-round downhill skiing and old fishing communities that have existed since pre-Viking times.
