The Nærøyfjord is one of the most spectacular arms of the Sognefjord, and the narrowest fjord in the world, at one point only 820 feet across, with mountains towering more than 5,600 feet 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 tower 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.
