The UNESCO Nærøyfjord

The Naeroyfjord the most beautiful and wildest arm of the Sognefjord is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Fjord cruises in unique setting, with sheer, snow-topped mountains, waterfalls and idyllic farms clinging to the mountainsides.

The wildest and most beautiful branch of the Sognefjord. Small farms that cling to the lien. The fjord is 17 km long and at its narrowest it is 250 m wide. The boat trip through the Nærøyfjord is one of the most dramatic fjord trips in Europe. Between Gudvangen-Aurland and Flåm there is a year-round boat route - sightseeing boat.

The fjord is a narrow fjord, and at Bakkasundet only 250 meters wide, while the mountains in the area stretch a full 1,761 meters above sea level. At Bakka on the narrow point, the greatest depth is only 7 fathoms (12 metres), while the fjord inside widens out and goes down to 75 meters (44 fathoms) deep so that the innermost part forms a stream. The fjord can freeze over in cold winters.
