The Sognefjord - and the beautiful fjord arms

Since 2005, the area defined as the West Norwegian Fjords, comprising the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord, has been included on UNESCO's World Heritage List of the world's cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value. The world heritage value of the Nærøyfjord area can be summed up as follows: a fjord landscape with active geological processes, a rich flora and fauna, and a beautiful natural landscape from fjord to mountains, with glaciers, forests, waterfalls and free-flowing rivers, and a cultural landscape that adds perspective to the natural landscape.

Nærøyfjord - narrow and dramatic 

The Nærøyfjord is the narrowest, wildest and most famous of the fjord arms, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The surrounding mountains rise steeply to reach towering heights and create a unique magical atmosphere. A ferry trip on the Nærøyfjord, from Kaupanger to Gudvangen, and a passangerboat from Flåm/Aurland, will take you through some of the most spectacular scenery in Norway. 

Lusterfjord - inland towards the Jotunheimen, Breheimen and Jostedalsbreen 

The landscape around the Lusterfjord is very picturesque, and many great artists have been inspired by the unique beauty of its scenery. The Lusterfjord extends all the way to the foot of the Jotunheimen and Breheimen mountains and the Jostedalsbreen glacier, and from Skjolden in the East to Solund in the West the Sognefjord measures an impressive 204 kilometres.

Fjærlandsfjord - inland towards the Jostedalsbreen Glacier 

This beautiful fjord arm extends almost all the way up to the glacier tongues that reach down to the village of Fjærland, and most of the year the fjord has a beautiful bright green colour because of the meltwater from the glaciers that flows into the fjord.

Finnafjord - roadless and exotic 

At the head of the distinctive Finnafjord, the mountains are steep and the scenery is spectacular. The famous cheese-maker Synnøve Finden was born and brought up beside this lovely fjord.
