 Geirangerfjord

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 Geirangerfjord is perhaps the world´s most famous fjord; whether or not it is the most beautiful is something you must decide for yourself. Tourists have been overwhelmed by the beauty of this region since the arrival of the first cruise ship in 1869. The village Hellesylt is the parish that features in the famous play "Brand" by Henrik Ibsen.

View of Preikestolen and De Syv Søstre waterfalls. Excellent spot for watching cruise ships entering the fjord. Skageflå is the most famous of the mountain farms. Moderately fit people can reach it on a good mountain path from Homlong. Attained fame when Queen Sonja and King Harald invited over 30 Royal guests to lunch in the farm courtyard when they celebrated their silver wedding in 1993.

Storseterfossen Waterfall where you can walk behind the falls. Walk for about 50 minutes on a good path from Vesterås farm. Suitable for all ages, but good foot wear is necessary.

Standing on the deck of the boat and feeling the spray of the water from the Seven Sisters (De syv søstre). These waterfalls is a unique experience. The tallest of these has a free fall of 250 meters. According to the legend, Friaren Waterfall wooed De Syv Søstre Waterfalls on the other side of the fjord. The fjord sightseeing cruise passes close to Friaren.
