Norway is in general very beautiful and their tourist slogan "powered by nature" is spot on. But the West Fjords are so dramatic and spectacular that they have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The World Heritage Area comprises two areas; Geirangerfjord (pictured) and Nærøyfjord (which includes Aurlandsfjord). They are some of the longest, deepest, and most narrow fjords in the world. Flanked by mountains towering to 1760 m, Nærøyfjord is 17 km long and only 250 m wide at its narrowest point. The Nærøyfjord area has a great variety of landscape, ranging from naked peaks around the Fresvik glacier to sheltered bays with woodland. Geirangerfjord is by far the most popular, but do yourself a favor and visit both fjords.
