Fjord Ranger Basecamp Programme

The Fjord Ranger basecamp programme is a tailor-made outdoor activity programme with teamwork, exploration and interactive learning where everyone can participate. Are you curious about the fjord landscape and the people who live here?

Join a Fjord Ranger on a journey in time. See how the glaciers and rivers have shaped the landscape. Learn more about the diversity of animals and plants in the World Heritage area, and about the fragile biological interaction.
