From Oslo to the fjords

Is it possible to visit the western fjords from Oslo, and spend only one day? I do not have any 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 the UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord. See below for more information about the Nærøyfjord.
