The idea behind Fjord Safari is fairly simple, but originality is sometimes the best way forwards... think Apple, IKEA or Cocoa-Cola... All well known for what they do best, and Nærøyfjord is the absolute 'optimum example' of what any fjord should be.... imposing peaks tower menacingly above you with sheer faces that would defy most experienced climbers... crystal clear but dark waters that mirror every image due to their stillness and wildlife and hillside villages all around you! Just a wonderful place to explain glaciation as part of our homeschooling!!!
That said, there are easier places to teach than a RIB speedboat! One that can manage frightening speeds and exhilarating handling as we skimmed over wakes from other boats and banked quickly into 90degree turns..
Fjord Safari's Heritage FjordSafari focuses not just on the amazing ride down this wondrous fjord (the narrowest of all fjords at some 200 in width, and only 10m in depth!) - it also focuses on the human stories behind this area and the wildlife that inhabits this amazing landscape (improved by the tumbling meltwater waterfalls all around the fjord).
So what did we see and hear from Gustav our guide, well firstly he had a dry sense of humour that endeared him to all, secondly he knew this region intimately and was able to name individual families houses and their stories (the most remote post office in Norway run by a 93yr old or the American couple who created a sensational hotel on a craggy outcrop overlooking the fjord)
