Gudvangen, Nærøyfjord

The little town of Gudvangen will either be your first taste of the Norwegian fjords, or your last glimpse – depending on what direction you are taking the Norway in a Nutshell tour in. Continue reading Gudvangen, Nærøyfjord

Undredal, Aurlandsfjord

Undredal was our first stopover in the fjords area, and we booked a night at the Undredal Gjestehus which was thankfully not booked out across our dates.

The ferry from Gudvangen to Flåm

The Nærøyfjord is considered to be one of the most beautiful fjords in the world, and rightly so, with hundreds of thousands of tourists choosing to visit both the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord on the popular Norway in a Nutshell tour every year. The number of visitors has surely risen over the past few years, as both the Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord made the UNESCO world heritage list in 2007, driving more tourism to the area than ever before.
