From Oslo to the Fjords

Is it possible to visit the western fjords from Oslo, and spend only one day? I do not have a car, how do I get to the fjords? What fjord in Norway do you recommend to visit? What activities can I do in the fjords?

There are many questions on how, where and how long time you need to experience the Western Fjords from Oslo. We recommend two UNESCO-protected fjords; the Nærøyfjord and the Geirangerfjord.
