Nærøyfjord, the most beautiful and dramatic of the branches of Sognefjord, is on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Majestic fjord landscape
Few places in the world can offer as breathtaking a landscape as the fjords of Western Norway. This is especially true of the spectacular, narrow Nærøyfjord – with its steep valley sides rising up to 1,800 metres, its wild waterfalls and vibrant cultural landscape that will take the breath away.
Small farms unconnected to roads can be seen at several places along the fjord, evidence of the time when the fjord was this area's most important transport artery.
Nærøyfjord is a branch of the famous Sognefjord, and here you can take a Nærøyfjord fjord cruise from Flåm and Gudvangen every day of the year.
Nærøyfjord on the UNESCO World Heritage list
Nærøyfjord is one of two Western Norwegian fjord areas on the UNESCO World Heritage list – it was inscribed on the list in 2005. This unique fjord is 17 kilometres long and only 250 metres wide at its narrowest.
