Take a couple hours relaxing and taking in these two beautiful fjords, the latter being a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. Wildlife, deep waters, and waterfalls surround you as you pass small towns that polka dot the fjords' coastlines.

These two fjords are some of the most beautiful in all of Norway and also have traditional Norwegian culture tied into them. There are a variety of options to explore them. Several types of boats offer rides, and you can rent kayaks or canoes to paddle yourself. Taking a boat takes up to two hours, depending on the type of boat. There are shuttles that take you back to the launch site upon landing in Gudvangen, the small town at the end of the Nærøy Fjord. These two fjords are extensions of the Sogne Fjord, the largest, deepest fjord in Norway. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
