Such a beautiful area and well worth the ferry from Gudvangen - Flam or vice versa (return trip is also an option). We took the Future of the Fjords vessel which was super modern and very quiet! The boat is also very accessible with wheelchairs being able to access the outside viewing platforms via ramps. View of the Fjord was spectacular with so many waterfalls and clearing areas with small villages and farms dotted along the path. Warning it does get very cold in winter, so be sure to rug up if you want to venture out onto the decks!! Food and drinks available on board for purchase. We pre-purchase tickets via the visit Flam website and got a discount - you can also buy tickets when you arrive, it is very quiet during winter.

Although there are various ways to do this, we chose one that was not one of the "packages". We took the 830 am bus from Bergen central terminal (platform O, you can pay by credit card on the bus -- bus is very comfortable and has a toilet) to Gunvagnen and electric ferry to Flam. We then took the ferry Flam to Bergen. A long but spectacular day.

We were fortunate to be on a cruise ship small enough to go down Nærøyfjord almost to Gundavgen. The scenery is marvellous, from the water to the mountain top. Every now and then waterfalls cascade down the sides. As you sail down the fjord you pass scattered traditional farmsteads before reaching Gundavgen.

This fjord is simply amazing. We wanted to avoid the packed tourist cruises and decided to do something a bit more off the beaten track. From Gudvangen, you can drive through a tunnel and reach a small village called Bakka. From here, you can hike up to Rimstiegen, around 750m altitude. It's the steepest hike I have ever done so you should be in fairly good shape to complete this hike. But every step is worth it, the views of the fjord are amazing!! You pass by a beautiful waterfall around half way up! It took us about 3 hours to complete the hike and return, plus a lunch break on the top.

The Fjord – zero emission classic vessel, that operates on electricity is the best way to sail through the narrow passages between the fjords. Being electrically operated, there is no sound or vibration in the vessel, which makes the sailing so serene that one falls in love with this place and doesn’t want the journey to end.

The vessels docks at small villages which are nothing short of fairy land with coloured roofs in the foreground and the white snow peaks in the background. Some of the passages are so narrow, that you literally feel the mountain falling on you.

This is a must must do if you are in Norway. It’s a journey that you need to experience, otherwise you have missed out the best part of Norway.

We took the Hybrid ferry from Gudvangen to Flam. The cruise was 2 hours long and the scenery was amazing. Waterfalls, cliffs, deep blue water....

Flåm was one of our cruise ship stops. We had decided to book the Naeroyfjord cruise ahead of time on our own. It was very easy to find the ship once off our MSC cruise . The vessel was all electric which made the ride smooth . Having different levels to walk to made it for a less crowded experience and the views of the fjords were just amazing ! It was cold but they also had an interior room to go to and warm up . Once we arrived there was a bus waiting for us to take us back . Highly recommended !

Of the 4 town in the two major fjord tours in Norway, Geiranger is the best. Both Geiranger and Flam were teaming with tourists, of course; but Geiranger had more charm. Flam was strictly catering tourists and felt hectic and theme park-y.

We booked a round trip car ferry ride for Geirangerfjord, which was more informative and interesting than the premium one-way tour at Flåm. The premium vessel was nicer - no doubt about it; but no informative given about the landscape and history at all.

If I had to choose between Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord, I’d choose Geirangerfjord!

We booked our Nærøyfjord cruise on the visitflam.com website to take us from Flåm to Gudvangen and booked the bus shuttle to return to Flåm

The scenery was spectacular - it was very mist and overcast with very low hanging marine layer when we departed on the Lady Elisabeth - but that just added to the mystic. The journey was a nice low trip along the fjord passing and occasionally stopping at the small villages along the way.

The views became if better as the mist dissipated and the sun came out.

several points:
1.) You really can't hear what the narrator is saying if you are out on deck taking pictures....
2) if you are catching the shuttle back - it is the regularly scheduled bus - do not cross the bridge - stay on the same side as the boat docked and walk towards the road (behind the store)
3) do not expect a lot of nice views from the bus trip - it is mostly several very long tunnels

We used visitflam.com to book our Fjord cruise from Flam to Gudvangen. We got to ride the award winning "Vision of the Fjords" vessel which is known for its fuel efficiency. The ship also offers excellent seating on both levels and is a 1.5 hour ride upto Gudvangen. This cruise was our favorite from the trip and the views were simply stunning. Once at Gudvangen, you can walk along the fjord to enjoy more views and you get excellent shots of this nature's gift. The return to Flam was via bus which was a 30 minute ride that takes you through long tunnels that cut thru mountains and is an experience in itself. Must do !!
