 Geirangerfjord

The Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord is perhaps the world´s most famous fjord; whether or not it is the most beautiful is something you must decide for yourself. Geiranger and it´s fjord are examples of Mother Earth at her most beautiful and impressive. Today the Geirangerfjord is the second most important cruise destination in Norway, with well over a hundred ships calling in the summer as well as the Coastal Steamer (Hurtigruten).

The Flydalsjuvet gorge, the Eagle road (Ørneveien) has 11 hairpin bends are an important ingredient on this easy tour, the Dalsnibba mountain (1.500 m.a.s), view of the Pulpit Rock, the Geirangerfjord with it´s Seven Sisters (De Syv Søstre) waterfalls. Excellent spot for watching cruise ships enter the fjord and the Friar waterfall (Suiter) and the fjord farms are all growing attractions.

Standing on the deck of the boat and feeling the spray of the water from these waterfalls is a unique experience. The tallest of these has a free fall of 250 metres. Behind Storfossen waterfall there is a great view, walk for about 60 minutes on a good path from Vesterås farm. Suitable for all ages, but good foot wear is necessary.
