 Geirangefjord

The Geirangefjord is perhaps the world´s most famous fjord; whether or not it is the most beautiful is something you must decide for yourself. Today the Geirangefjord 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 Coastal Steamer runs daily round trips Ålesund - Geiranger from April to mid-September.

Geiranger and its fjord are examples of Mother Earth at her most beautiful and impressive. Tourists have been overwhelmed by the beauty of this region since the arrival of the first cruise ship in 1869. In Geiranger, you will quite literally become part of nature. You will feel the spray from the waterfalls, you can visit the farms along the fjord and reach the 1.500 metres high Dalsnibba in 45 minutes.

One of the world´s most famous photographic subjects. Flydalsjuvet, with its springboard-shaped rock formation, seemingly poised between earth and sky, is the best known view point. You yourself can be a part of it. A short way from the centre, the gorge can be included on a trip to Dalsnibba.

The unique road construction known as the Knot (Knuten) remains as it was when it was opened 1882. It was built in conjunction with the Geirangervegen road in order to gain height and to conquer difficult terrain. The stone construction displays outstanding engineering work and is an important reminder of the pioneers who built Geirangervegen road from 1881 until it was opened in 1889.
