The Sognefjord is the largest fjord in Norway. Situated in Sogn og Fjordane in Western Norway, it stretches 203 km inland to the town of Skjolden.
The fjord reaches a maximum depth of 1,308 m below sea level. The greatest depths are found some way inland: near its mouth, the bottom rises abruptly to a sill about 100m below sea level. The average width of the main branch of the Sognefjord is about three miles. Cliffs surrounding the fjord rise almost sheer from the water to heights of 1000m and more.
Towns on the fjord and its branches include Balestrand, Gudvangen and Flåm.
Over the Sognefjord a power line with a span of 4597 m is installed. This is the second largest span of power lines in the world.
