On an arm of Sognefjord, Gudvangen is at the foot of steep cliffs soaring 5,500 feet above the water's surface and plunging deep to form one of the region's deepest fjord basins. Snow-capped mountains, green cliffs, and veils of tumbling waterfalls characterize the vertical landscape on the approach to Gudvangen. The fjord is so narrow in places that during winter the sun can't reach the valley floor. Mystical Gudvangen is the site of white caves and medieval stave churches. View more

Exploring Norway's fjord region is a memorable experience for even the most seasoned traveller. Cutting deep into the mountainous terrain, craggy rock walls and overhanging cliffs characterize the scenic wonder of the fjords.
Gudvangen lies at the head of the Nærøyfjord, an offspring of the Sognefjord and Aurlandsfjord. Waterfalls line the steep mountainsides and goat farms lie scattered about the green valleys. Surrounded by peaks as high as 5,000 feet (1,538 metres).
Go ashore and take a short walk along the main and only village street to see its pretty white houses with gardens and orchards. Many of these houses are decorated with traditional wooden carvings. There is a souvenir shop nearby however if you would rather go for a walk there is a path on your going along the fjord.
The place fills with peace and splendour of the mountains and the fjord. Only the waterfalls rumbling down the mountainsides.
