Only a few places in the world can offer such grand spectacle of nature, as the fjords in the western part of Norway. The Nærøyfjord is unique with steep mountain inclines, ascending 1800 metres high, wild waterfalls and a living cultural landscape. The Nærøyfjord arm (part of the Sognefjord) is 19 Km long and only 250 metres wide in some places.
The Nærøyfjord is rich in contrasts and offers a unique interaction of scenery and landscape. The magnificent mountains surrounding the fjord rise vertically, allowing many powerful cascading waterfalls to majestically crash into the fjord below. There are many untouched, wild areas and small farms surrounding the Nærøyfjord. No visible roads connects the farms and tiny villages, demonstrating what an important lifeline and travel route the fjord provided in the past.
