What is Sognapuls?

Sognapuls is your own heartbeats, it is our heartbeats, the ones that beat when you are here with us. It is the present and the moments you experience there and then. It is the pulse you have when you get involved, enjoy yourself, experience something fantastic. It can be the resting pulse when you sit on the balcony of one of our historic hotels. It can be a high pulse in a RIB boat on the Sognefjord. It can be a calm pulse when you sit on a mountain top and look out over the beautiful fjord landscape. It may be the only thing you hear, your own heart rate when you glide across a quiet Sognefjord in a kayak. Take the pulse of the Sognefjord or let the Sognefjord take your pulse.

Sognapulsen - the pulse of the Sognefjord.
