Departure on board an eco-friendly ship for a fjord cruise on the narrow and spectacular Nærøyfjord from Flåm to Gudvangen. Surrounded by steep valley sides and snow-covered peaks, thundering waterfalls and picturesque villages, this area is considered 
one of the most beautiful fjord landscapes in the world and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
