The Nærøyfjord

The world’s most beautiful and dramatic fjord is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Fjord kayaking in a unique setting, with sheer, snow-topped mountains, waterfalls and idyllic farms clinging to the mountainsides. The passage through Nærøyfjord is one of the most dramatic fjord trips in the world.

The name Nærøyfjord originates from the norse god ‘Njord’, the God of the Seafarer and the sea.
