Geiranger Fjord, Geiranger

#1 of 109 in Things to do in More og Romsdal
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.

    Any visit to Geiranger is not complete without a Fjord trip. The scenery is magnificent and the two hour cruise is highly recommended.  more »

    We arrived with a cruise ship. The road was snow made free by bus and we drove to the top. It was a clear day so we had a wonderful sight. The driver was an experienced driver to pass through the narrow turns cautious but confident. The view on the Valley, the winding roads, the waterfalls, the snow piled high ... it's not to describe how this unique place is enchanting. You feel the purity of nature......... pity also ... the hustle and bustle of all the upcoming, departing buses with people. You also get not much time to long to keep looking, too much time pressure to be happy and to enjoy
