Together with the historical Geirangerfjord, Nærøyfjorden is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, West Norwegian Fjords. “This means that we need to take extremely good care of them,” says one of the project leaders of the World Heritage Park, Gro Nesse-Bremer. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Nærøyfjord Foundation, which will be marked by sponsoring The Aurland Markets on 6-7 July. “The Nærøyfjord is exceptionally beautiful and wild – and has lively geology. You can see the changes happening in the landscape from year to year. There are several avalanches and rockslides every year, which helps shape it. The rivers and waterfalls rub on the rocks and change the landscape over time,” Nesse-Bremer explains.
