Stranda, Geiranger, Hellesylt
PICTURES from STRANDA
The tourist trade in Stranda municipality is varied and robust. The villages are Geiranger, Hellesylt and Liabygda. Geiranger and its fjord are examples of Mother Earth at her most beautiful and impressive. Stranda has a very varied economy with a wide range of jobs. It has 160 modern meat-production, dairy farms and shopping opportunities.

 Skageflå  
Skageflå, Skageflaa Skageflå lies approximately 250 metres above the fjord. The farm is a two to fire hour walk from Geiranger, and can also be reached with help of a local sightseeing boat M/S Geirangerfjord. The boat takes passengers to a spot on the fjord just below the farm, from which point they face a very steep half-hour climb. Directly across the fjord is the old Knivsflå farm and the Seven Sisters waterfall.

Skageflå was once one of the richer goat farms in Geiranger, and had 2 or 3 mountain pastures for its animals. From the fjord, the farm has a difficult uphill hike to get to the farm.
