What is a Fjord?



  1. 0 Votes

    A fjord is defined as a “narrow inlet of the sea between cliffs or steep slopes.” Norway’s fjords are famous for their beauty and the striking landscape they create, and are a huge boon for the country’s tourist industry. Fjords were created by the carvings of glacial movements.

    Along with glacier ice, ocean storms and earthquakes can also help to form the fjord environment, such as in Kenai Fjords National Park of Alaska. Huge ice chunks may commonly float down some fjords. This type of waterway can also be found in Scandinavia, Canada, Greenland, and Antarctica. You may be able to go on fjord tours, flowing down the channels in a boat or hiking along the cliffs.
