The Nærøyfjord is perhaps the most spectacular arm of the Sognefjord, and the narrowest fjord in the world, at one point only 250 metres across, with mountains towering more than 1,700 metres above its tranquil waters. The area has been inhabited for about 10,000 years, and farmed for almost 3,000 years. Farming is still important for people living along the fjord today.
The Sognefjord is the second longest and deepest fjord in the world. Snow-capped mountains towers high above the deep fjord. Waterfalls cascade from the ragged mountain tops and glaciers, through deciduous and coniferous forests down to the fjord. The well-tended cultural landscape along the fjord bears witness to the active agriculture in the area.
The Nærøyfjord and the Geirangerfjord are among the most outstanding fjord areas on the planet, and as such have been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
