Sognefjord & Nærøyfjord in a nutshell with UNESCO fjord bus

Experience two beautiful UNESCO-protected fjords on the amazing Sognefjord & Nærøyfjord in a nutshell with UNESCO fjord bus! The Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord spellbinds even the most seasoned travelers with steep mountainsides, hanging valleys, towering peaks and breathtaking waterfalls.

The Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord are considered to be two of the most outstanding natural attractions in all of Norway. Surrounded by towering mountains up to 1,700 metres high, the narrow Nærøyfjord is an amazingly beautiful experience.

The Geirangerfjord is widely know for its beauty and along the fjord you can see a number of abandoned farms clinging to the steep hillsides and several impressive waterfalls. The two most notable waterfalls in the Geirangerfjord are ‘de Syv Søstre’ (the seven sisters) and ‘Friaren’ (the suitor, also called the wooer). 

On this tour you get to experience these two amazing UNESCO fjords with a fjord cruise on the Nærøyfjord, while the UNESCO Fjord Bus will take you to Geiranger and the Geirangerfjord. You will also experience a fjord cruise on the mighty Sognefjord in yet another area considered to be among the most beautiful travel destinations in the world.
