Aurlandsfjord is a fjord in the municipality of Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane. It starts at Flåm and ends at the mountain Beitelen, which divides the two fjords Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. In Aurlandsfjord, we have the small villages Flåm, Aurland, and Undredal.

The tourist "high" season lasts from 1st if may to 30th of september. Then you can take boats from Flåm to Gudvangen, out the Aurlandsfjord and in the Nærøyfjord. You can also visit the fjord by other boats or by kayaks, or you can do a fjordsafari in a RIB-boat.

We also recommend you to walk in the surrounding mountains. It will give you a tremendous view over the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord area.

You can visit the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord all year round. But during the winter, the fjords are periodically covered by ice. More and more tourists are visiting the Aurlandsfjord, Nærøyfjord and Sognefjord during the winter.
