Regardless of the season, a cruise on the Nærøyfjord will be an unforgettable experience.
Join a fjord cruise in the UNESCO World Heritage landscape in one of the most popular fjord areas in Norway.
The narrow and spectacular Nærøyfjord is surrounded by steep valley sides and snow-covered peaks that rise 1,800 metres above sea level, with thundering waterfalls and picturesque villages along the fjord. Regardless of the season, a cruise on the Nærøyfjord will be an unforgettable experience. Every season leaves its own unique touch on the fjord landscape: Frosty colours, white mountain peaks and ice-covered waterfalls during winter time; blooming deciduous trees and birds chirping during the spring; green trees and long, bright nights during the summer; and a golden terrain with fresh and clear air during the autumn.
You can begin your fjord cruise from Flåm or Gudvangen. If you travel from Flåm, the vessel will begin its journey sailing through the idyllic Aurlandsfjord, which is also inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Furthermore, the boat continues through the narrow Nærøyfjord before arriving Gudvangen, innermost in the Nærøyfjord. The trip takes around two hours one way, and can be combined with a shuttle bus to make it a round trip. The bus connects with the Nærøyfjord cruise and gives you the flexibility to choose which bus and boat departures suit you best. The shuttle bus runs all year round.
Vision & Future of The Fjords
The two vessels Vision and Future of The Fjords represent a brand-new standard in design and technology. They have been designed to maximise the tourist experience during any kind of weather, with large windows and walkways inspired by the winding trails of steep mountain terrain. Passengers are encouraged to go out on the top deck and enjoy a very different experience compared to traditional passenger vessels. Inside you will find Nordic inspired interior design offering a high level of comfort.
These are environmentally-friendly vessels: Vision is a hybrid vessel and Future is a fully-electric vessel. Both vessels sail along the most exposed and spectacular parts of the Nærøyfjord, running on battery power only and keeping to a speed of less than 10 knots.
