The Fjords are narrow inlets that have steep sides and cliffs that have been created by glacial erosions. The Fjords exist in many places around the world. However, most of Norway’s coastline consists of the fjords. The Fjords were formed by a succession of the ice ages. They are formed when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley by ice segregation and abrasion into the bedrock.
Why they are special: The Fjords of Norway are some of the most scenic and picturesque places on earth with an abundance of natural beauty, quiet country-side, bustling cities and complete wilderness. Their beauty is untouched and has remained the same since the ice ages.
