Incredible Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord in Norway
Norway is a perfect holiday destination for nature lovers, since it flaunts an endless array of picturesque attractions that promise unforgettable times. Two such attractions are the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord, which can be found in the southern part of Sogn og Fjordane, in close proximity to the towns of Gudvangen, Aurland and Flam.
If you plan to visit these incredible landmarks during your next holiday, you should know that you could find perfect accommodations at the nearby Fretheim Hotel or Flåmsbrygga Hotel in Flam, both flaunting spectacular views of their respective surroundings and offering more than adequate living arrangements. After you are done with the check in formalities, you can begin to explore these incredible corners of paradise, since the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord are some of the most spectacular branches of the Sognefjord.
One of the best ways to admire these fjords in their entire splendor is to go on an organized cruise, as this will allow you to view the surrounding mountains and waterfalls effortlessly. However, if you feel like taking in the panoramas from an elevated position, you can always hike up to the Stegastein View Point, which rests at an altitude of 2,132 feet above sea level and is reachable via the Aurlandsvegen Mountain Road.
Walking along the fjords and kayaking can also prove quite rewarding, but in the end, it all comes down to your own preference. Other attractions include the Magic White Caves of Gudvangen, the Otternes Bygdetun museum and the Viking Village in Gudvangen, all offering a great insight into the local way of life and traditions of this extraordinary place. Furthermore, the Flam railway, which is also one of the steepest in the world, could take you close to wonderful waterfalls and right through the snow-capped mountains that surround these exquisite Fjords.
