Lookout point in a parking lot, Aurland, Sogn and Fjordane
Aurland, a municipality in the southeastern part of Sogn og Fjordane county, lies 200 kilometers from the west coast of Norway, along the Aurlandsfjord and the Naeroyfjord.
These are fingers of the world's longest and deepest fjord, the Sognefjord. Together with Geirangefjord, Naeroyfjord is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Most of the area consists of fjords and mountains with small populated areas concentrated in the lower river valleys at Aurland, Naeroy, Undredal, Flam and Vassbygdi. Wild and beautiful nature dominate the community from the fjords to the mountain tops at 1200 to 1800 meters, and two permanent glaciers, Storskavlen and Blaskavlen, drawing many nature lovers as tourists.
