Luxury dog-friendly hotels in Storfjord, Norway
Stretching 110 kilometres as it slices through the snow-dusted Sunnmøre Alps, Storfjord – whose name translates as Great Fjord – more than matches up to its mighty moniker. Ancient farms and tiny hamlets teeter on its pine-forested slopes, and waterfalls crash into mirrored waters. For hardy fjord-farers, whale-spotting sea safaris, kayaking and cliff-hugging hikes await. Cosier corners beckon in nearby Ålesund, where rainbow-painted art nouveau buildings cluster on the coast, hiding treasure-stuffed boutiques and restorative seafood restaurants.
