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.

  • This was a stop on the NCL Jade. We rented a car and picked it up right at the port, Hertz. There are not many rental cars available here, so do try and book in advance, especially if you are family w...  more »

  • In my opinion is the Geirangerfjord the most beautiful fjord of all in norway. It is about 15km long and 1.5km on its widest part. It has amazing views and is very diverse. You should take your tent and sleep at one of the various great spots there. Waking up in this fjord is something you won't forget that fast, I promise.
  • There is a beautiful tiny village here called Geiranger. It's packed with tourists around here, but it's worth a visit. Lots of delicious restaurants, too. This is definitely the most beautiful fjord on Earth. There are a lot of excursions you can do or you can go kayaking, and you can admire lots of beautiful waterfalls. Another town you can visit is called Westerås. Here you can enjoy some amazing views of this fjord, and you can find lots of good restaurants.
  • Amazing place must go there if you have time..
  • In the land of hundreds of magnificent fjords, Geiranger is considered Norway’s most beautiful: A spectacular creation by glaciers, this fjord is about 15 km long and 1.5 km wide at its widest part. With almost vertical mountain sides and no habitable coast, the occasional abandoned mountain farms bear witness to the relentless efforts of humankind to conquer nature and gain a foothold. The most popular way of seeing the fjord is by ferry, but kayaking is as much fun. You will pass by spectacular waterfalls that thunder down the steep mountain cliffs, creating a permanent veil of fog and endless rainbows. Another way of seeing the fjord is by taking the famous Trollstigen road, built in 1936 in an amazing feat of engineering, which snakes up steep mountain sides; narrow, occasionally protected by stone railings, and passing by massive waterfalls, it is nerve-wracking yet absolutely fascinating. The whole area is a dreamland for daredevils and adrenaline junkies, who find the steep cliffs a supreme challenge for climbing, rappelling, and ziplining
  • Although it's changed over the last few years, it's still the most impressive Fjord in Norway. Beautiful to look at, friendly people, lovely walks. Plenty to do.
