Geiranger Fjord, Geiranger

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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Geiranger trip simple and quick.

  • Stunningly beautiful ❤️
  • One of the most stunning sites you’ll ever see with your own eyes. This place allows you to appreciate nature and fresh air. The climb up took about 30 minutes but the hike is SO WORTH IT. If you can’t walk you can rent a mini car to drive up the mountain. I’d love to revisit this place again in my life time. Take plenty of pictures.
  • Easily the most beautiful fjord, with waterfalls all round. Impressive view from top (resembling Big Bend in Grand Canyon). Too bad we had overcast weather nonstop (typical for most rainy region in Europe)
  • The most interesting part was the waterfall behind all the shops. Climb the steel staircase to the top and you get a fantastic view back down the fjord.
  • Geiranger is one of my favor destination in Norway. The Fjord is absolutely beautiful. We visited this region with COSMOS Tour, and we were deeply moved by its stunning scenery. My tip for you is to get up earlier in the morning, and walk up the hill, then you will get the images like what I am going to show you below..
