The Nordfjord runs into the Jostedalsbreen glacier, Europe's largest glacier, via sheer, rocky cliffs and the Hornindalsvatnet lake, which is one of Europe's deepest lake.  It doesn't have the same official accolade but one of the fjord's most scenic views is over the Briksadalsbreen glacier, across which you can ski - starting in Stryn, which has enough snow to ski all year.
