UNESCO's Fjord Heritage

NærøyfjordOn July 14th 2005, the West Norwegian Fjords represented by Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord with surrounding country, were included in Unesco's World Heritage list. The landscape, considered to be among the most scenically outstanding fjord areas on the planet, was inscribed in the list due to it's unique natural quality and beauty. Norway has a total of 7 areas in Unesco's World Heritage List.
 

GeirangerThe Norwegian Fjords - World Heritage
Unesco's World Heritage Committee explains the enrolment of the West Norwegian Fjords i.a. by the classic, well developed fjords considered to be type locality (geologi) for the worlds fjord landscape. The area is believed to be among the most beautiful and scenic fjord landscapes in the world. The depth varies between 10 and 500 metres and the surrounding mountains are up to more than 1400 metres high. Sognefjord, which Nærøyfjord is a part of, is actually more than 1300 meter deep at the deepest.

Numerous wild and beautiful waterfalls and rivers characterize the landscape, crossing the rugged mountains and deciduous and coniferous forests on their way down to the fjords. Beautiful villages with a sustained cultivated landscape with remainders of old farms and mountain pastures and unique cultural monuments gives a extra dimension to the dramatic natural landscape. A heritage with a importance so high that we are obliged to look after this treasure for the future generations.

There is a great local engagement behind the process of the application for World Heritage Status. It has involved persons from the municipality, the regions and also nationally.
