Norway Day 3: Nærøyfjord

Nærøyfjord is an UNESCO Heritage site and well worth seeing – as the name would imply, it starts off very narrow and then opens up into Sognefjord. You can book tickets for the cruise here: http://www.fjord2.com/

We took the ferry from Gudvangen to Kaupanger. At Gudvangen, there’s also a giftshop/bathroom. There were also bathrooms on the ferry boat. And a small but largely useless cafe. Bring your own food if you can! (Oh, also, the ferries are car ferries, so you just drive your car on and then you can sit or stand wherever on the boat and watch the view. You can access your car if you need to without a problem.)

Here is what Nærøyfjord looks like.

I should note that some pics are taken ahead of us and some behind. Generally the ones with ripples or waves are the ones taken behind the boat, of where we came from.
