Explore the Nærøyfjord from a fjord cruise
The Nærøyfjord is one of those fjords you really have to take a boat to see properly. The fact that it’s so untouched is actually one of the main reasons as to why this fjord is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The narrow fjord, surrounded by high, steep mountains, looks almost exactly the same as it did 50 or 100 years ago. When aboard the modern electric boat, you have panoramic views whether you’re sitting inside or out on deck. You’ll sail past the small communities of Bakka, Tufte, Styvi and Dyrdal along the Nærøyfjord. You can disembark at the last two of these in order to explore the nature and cultural history at close quarters.
On a 2-hour Fjord Cruise Nærøyfjord, you won’t just see one fjord. You’ll also get to see the beautiful Aurlandsfjord, which is part of the World Heritage-listed West Norwegian Fjords. On your way to or from Flåm, there are great views across to Stigen gård clinging on to a mountain ledge, the picturesque Undredal the provided inspiration for Disney’s Arendelle in the Frozen films, and Aurlandsvangen, the municipal centre in Aurland. If you book the Nærøyfjord tour, a shuttle bus will take you back to your starting point, whether you boarded in Gudvangen or Flåm.
