Startin point for hikes in flam/aurland

Hello,

I will be arriving in Aurland on a cruise in June and was wondering if anyone knows of the closest starting point for a hike in the Nærøyfjord. Also would I need a taxi there?

Looking for some real scenic views and will be in port for approx 10 hours.

Ultimately we would like to do the Nærøyfjord in Sognefjord area however that would be too far and costly to get too.

Thanks and any response appreciated :)

Aurland village is at Aurlandsfjord, Nærøyfjord terminates at Gudvangen some 30 min drive. Both fjords are arms of the larger Sognefjord.

Hiking can be done anywhere as wilderness is never far away. So it all depends what kind of hike you have in mind. An easy walk in delicate shoes or a scramble up the steep hills?
