Sognefjorden drops 1308 metres below sea level and large cruise ships can go there and experience the beauty at close range.

 
The Norwegian Fjords are a result of the last ice age

During the succession of ice ages, Northern Europe was covered by up three kilometres thick ice. The fjords were carved by this power of those forces of nature, and today we can be grateful to these ice ages, regarding how amazing these fjords looks like in all its beauty.
