Geiranger Fjord, Geiranger

(1,900+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
Part of Norway's network of glacial inlets and mountainous crevasses, Geiranger Fjord represents one of the country's most popular sights on the World Heritage List. Visit the fjord, stretching 15 km (9.3 mi), and explore the rugged landscape that characterizes the area. While several small villages dot the region, here the surrounding mountains plunge almost directly into the sea, making most habitation impossible. Join a sightseeing boat tour to get a view of the mountains as well as an up-close look at the fjord's system of waterfalls. You can also climb your way up to one of the fjord's viewpoints for sweeping panoramas of jagged peaks, forested slopes, and the twisting waterway itself. Geiranger Fjord is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Geiranger Edition.

  • Dare was a drizzle of very good result! Clouds hangs down, like in a fairy tale world. Depth is 200 metres away and is clear. Seven stars and a big waterfall or yarn falls fun ways. Dick lies ships passing each other in the picture. What was such a beautiful location on the Earth?

  • Is that where different again, in that we have our real insignificance before the immensity of nature. On arrival, with the huge Rocky walls, houses hanging on the cliffs, completely isolated. And on arrival at the site, there are options with buses and electric cars. WATCH. The buses are practical, but stop far too short a time in observatories located at the end and one of the sides. Hence you can't look and give that contemplated, to think about life. Did the morning tours with the bus to a lake that was still frozen and in the afternoon I went up to one of the lookouts (heavy walk), cutting the road that winds up the Hill. Pretty cool sitting on the grass and look down. Met during the month of may, it's not ideal, because the Scandinavian equivalent to spring days southern Brazil strict. Even so, the Sun rose around 4:00 and was around 11:15 pm

  • The fjord itself, yes the entire landscape, are insane and each Norway travellers should have been here at least once. We were the second time in 8 years. And it especially tourism, has changed much. At 63, there is now a super viewing platform (Ørnesvingen), that itself bietet-necessarily go to magnificent views over Geiranger and the fjord but: early turn! When we were in the summer here, the tourists were distributed just buses way from ships in the landscape, so that hardly a parking was free parking at all. So rather early and enjoy the fantastic view, before pouring in the masses: it is worthwhile in any case!
