Pictures from the Geirangerfjord area
Geiranger and the Geirangerfjord are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Each year, hundreds of thousands tourists visit this area.
Kayaking, RIB-boat Fjord Safari or a Fjord Cruise are all great ways to experience this majestic fjord. You can combine a boat trip and mountain hiking to one of many abandoned mountain farms, like the hike to Skageflå and Knivsflå, and hike or take the boat back to Geiranger.
Visit the viewpoint at Flydalsjuvet and see the iconic view towards the Geirangerfjord and the surrounding mountains and waterfalls.
Drive up the steep Ørnevegen (the Eagles Road). At the upper part of the steep hillside there is a viewpoint where you can stop and see Geiranger and the Geirangerfjord from a birds-eye perspective. From here you can also see the famous waterfall “The Seven Sisters” cascading into the fjord.
