Explore Fjord Norway - Hiking Trolls Tongue

Fjord Norway is the actual source of most of the images you likely associate with “Norway” in general. The region runs along the country’s southwestern coast, comprising a dramatic landscape of fjords, mountains, cliffs, and islands, as well as some truly special cultural and culinary centers. For this exciting partnership, Matador dispatched a small crew of our most talented Ambassadors to traverse the region and do what they do best, be that kayaking world-class whitewater, trekking the regions epic trails, or simply photographing scenery that seemed be pushing to new levels just around that next curve in the road. Scroll down to see the stories and media they came back with. To see more articles, photos and videos from this epic destination go to http//
