If you like water, the choice is simple, go for the fjords.

I've spent time in both places and they are so different! I think you will need to do some research and see what appeals to you most!

I grew up in stowe vermont and love natural beauty.Banff ,is beautiful,also Bernase overland i went to years ago backpacking.I just would like your opion which you would choose to go to.Which gives you that wow this is beautiful factor.It is just an opion,give me yours.If i was going to do one with a group and then one on my own another time what would you choose and why?How many days in bergen and area close? Also would you spend more time in zermatt or in Bernase overland in switz.,which s more charming.Does one feel like vail or aspen like gstad .I don't want to be in a place in europe that is like vail in USA.

On a boring, financial note, the cost of food in Norway makes Switzerland look cheap.

For sheer breathtaking, majestic scenery I would choose the Fjords OR Alaska. I have lived in Switzerland for 25 years and I love the beauty of our Alps but both Norway and Alaska blew me away!!

However if it is good food you seek - Switzerland wins hands down!!

Haven't been to Norway, but the Lauterbrunnen valley in Switzerland is one of my favourite places. It is just beautiful and offers some wonderful walks,cable rides and mountain trains. The climate is so fresh and it has loads to offer. We took friends there last year and they were awestruck.

If these really look alike to you, pick the destination that is cheaper and easier to reach.

JoLeicester -

funny you should say that about the Lauterbrunen valley! Why? because it is a glaciated U-shaped valley which, were Switzerland to have a sea coast, could easily have been a fjord. Same geological origin!! I agree with you - I love the Lauterbrunenn valley (and the fjords!)
