Geiranger

At the inner reaches of Norway's longest fjord lies Geiranger.

Geiranger Fjord  is surrounded by the steepest and the most preposterous mountains on the entire west coast. It is very narrow and has no habitable shore area, for the precipitous heights rise in sheer and rugged strata almost straight out of the water. Foaming waterfalls plunge into the fjord from jagged peaks.

At the inner reaches of Norway's longest fjord, the Sognefjord, lies Geiranger, a picture postcard of the Norwegian fjord landscape. The Norwegian Fjord Center has multimedia on the history of the region and its inhabitants. Part of the steep Trollstigen mountain road weaves through the village, connecting to Flydalsjuvet lookout, which has views over the fjord. The fjord’s waterfalls, including the Seven Sisters, the Suitor and the Bridal Veil, are visible by boat.

Cruise ships come and go, and so do the tourist buses. However, despite the traffic, Geiranger is well worth a visit, and we would recommend you to stay a day or two.

Kayak rental is available at the shores edge, and paddling your way out under the towering cliffs and stunning waterfalls is an experience of a lifetime. Then go ashore for a 1-2 hour hike up to one of the abandoned farms high up in the hillside with breathtaking views back towards the township of Geiranger.
