UNESCO Fjord Cruise on the Nærøyfjord
Taking a winter fjord safari in Flåm is a great way to see the fjord and relax. The tour begins in Flåm and takes you deep into the Nærøyfjord. Along the way, stops will be made where your local guide will explain about the rich wildlife of the area, the distinctive nature and the cultural history of the tiny little villages and local farms scattered along the fjord. The many waterfalls will be frozen solid, the fjord is calm, the water clear and the snow lies just like frosting on the high, steep mountains.
On our return from the Nærøyfjord we will make a stop to visit Undredal, idyllically situated on the shores of the fjord, surrounded by high mountains. With its 90 inhabitants and 500 goats Undredal it truly is a special little village. We will visit the local shop where you will be served some hot beverages and hear from one of the locals what life is really like living along the fjord. Here you will also have the opportunity to sample and buy the award-winning local goat cheese.
During the fjord safari you will be provided with flotation suits, hats, gloves, goggles and pullover boots. We also wish to stress the importance and necessity of dressing warm with wool and fleece, as well as warm comfortable shoes. If you are not dressed warmly enough you will get the option of hiring extra clothing so that you will have a comfortable and pleasant experience. The trip is suitable for everyone, children min. age 4 years.
