Where is the world's longest fjord?

Answer:

Greenland

Norway is the self-proclaimed “Land of Fjords,” and for good reason — not only is the word “fjord” Norwegian, but the country’s coast also consists of around 1,200 fjords. However, the longest fjord in the world isn’t among them. Fjords are narrow inlets of the sea between cliffs, formed by melting glaciers. Scoresby Sund in Greenland is a multi-fjord system covering some 14,700 square miles — the longest branch stretches 216 miles, making it the longest in the world. Norway’s Sognefjord and Hardanger Fjord aren’t too far behind, holding the second and third spots at 127 miles and 111 miles, respectively.
