Nærøy Fjord and Aurlands Fjord

Nærøy fjord, the name originates from the norse god ‘Njord’, the god of the seafarer and the sea. This is one of many fjordarms reaching off Sogne Fjord and in 2005 became part of UNESCO’s World Heritage along with Geiranger fjord. Aurlands fjord is just as picturesque with surrounding mountains as high as 1400m branching off for 17km. These fjords can be visited throughout the year but during winter they are periodically covered by ice. The ‘high season’ for tourists is usually between the start of May and end of September. The Nærøy fjord and Aurlands fjord are found in the south area of the county Sogn og Fjordane in western Norway. They are said to be the most beautiful and dramatic fjords in the world, both arms off Sogne fjord. Small towns nearby include; Aurland, Flam and Gudvangen. We highly recommend when visiting these incredible fjords you take the time to:

Hike to see the breath taking views.

Take in the amazing views by walking around the fjords, a particularly popular route is a path between Bleiklindi and Styvi, much steeper walks such as Beitelen and Rimstigen can allow you to reach areas allowing you to see striking views across the fjords.

Kayaking on the Nærøy fjord and Aurlands fjord

Experience the fjords from your very own kayak exploring hidden places that just cannot be reached by walking. Guided kayak tours are easily available.

Fjord Safari

Travelling in comfort on a RIB boat enables you to get up close to the surrounding wildlife. It is a hair raising experience and one well worth doing. The knowledgeable guides tell you tales and legends of the fjords as well as many interesting facts about the wildlife and history. Seals, Porpoises and Eagles are most often seen.

Stegastein View Point

Being 650m above sea level enables you to take in the spectacular views of cascading waterfalls and picturesque mountain peaks seeing the unspoilt nature at its best.

The Magic White Caves of Gudvangen

Found in the White Mountain Anorthist these caves will enthrall you with their magic of Trolls, Vikings and Grieg.

The Norwegian Wild Salmon Centre

Located in Lærdal this gives visitors an insight into the popular tradition of salmon fishing learning about the history and Exploring the Surrounding Areas Nearby an enjoyable attraction is the Flam Railway one of the world’s steepest tracks taking you up and around the fjords. More amazing sights not to be missed include visiting the village of Undredal to see one of Scandinavia’s smallest stave churches and walking the Aurlandsdalen Valley known as Norway’s Grand Canyon.Image courtesy of Kamil Porembinski.
