Outdoor Norway offers you an amazing sea kayaking guided tour in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Park – Nærøyfjord. The name Nærøyfjord originated from the old norse(old norwegian) god ‘Njord’ which means the God of sailors and the sea.

The Nærøyfjord is considered the wildest and the most beautiful arm of the Sognefjord that is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. It is 17 km long and the narrowest point is 250 m wide.  Its depth varies between 10 and 500 metres and the surrounding mountains are more than 1400 metres high.
