Indre Sogn Kystlag is an organization connected with Forbundet Kysten, which is working to protect and develop cultural values along the coast and in our fjords. The goal is to protect thru use.
Every “Kystled” is cooperating with Forbundet Kysten, the Norwegian tourist association and Friluftrådenes Landsforbund. Kystled Sogn is also a partner in Nærøyfjorden World Heritage Park, a bearer of nature- and culture- based development of society and local livelihood.
Using the fjord and landscape
All traffic is free, and cared of by Norwegian law of outdoor life and environment. This law regulates the use of desolate areas and farmland. According to § 9 you may camp max. 2 nights at the same place in desolate areas, but not on farmland without the owners permission. It is prohibited to leave any garbage behind, or cause any harm or damage to nature by lighting fire etc. Keep our tradition alive, and protect our fjord and world heritage clean!
Indre Sogn Kystlag has developed a network of places to stay overnight along the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord. The old shipping lane between these villages, farms and other areas is now available for the people who wish to travel in a vessel without an engine.
