Fjord (1)

  • The Nærøyfjord

    At Beitelen the Aurlandsfjord separates into two fjord branches. The eastern fjord branch is the wider and is considered a continuation of the Aurlandsfjord, whereas the western branch is narrow and is looked upon as a fjord branch. The latter is the Nærøyfjord, a major tourist attraction with precipitous mountainsides and small hamlets on either side. In 2005, the Nærøyfjord was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
