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.

Join Norway's best or Lustrabaatane on a Fjord Cruise into this beautiful fjord.
