The four counties of Western Norway - Møre og Romsdal, Sogn og Fjordane, Hordaland and Rogaland - are known mainly for their magnificent fjords, waterfalls and mountains. Among the fjords, which were formed during the last Ice Age, Geirangerfjorden, Sognefjorden, Hardangderfjorden and Lysefjorden are absolutely the most spectacular.
In Lysefjorden you will find the majestic mountain formation called Pulpit Rock, where only the most daring among us venture out to the edge. The farms of the fjord district are small and not easily operated. There are, however, handsome manor estates and beautiful wooden hotels in Swiss or dragon style that were built in the very early days of tourism.(Source: www.visitnorway.com)
