The most beautiful sights at Geiranger Fjord
The Geiranger fjord is one of Norway’s most famous fjords and has been entitled a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 14, 2005. Cruise ships will follow the 15-kilometer-long fjord to the end in the small town of Geiranger. A ride into Geiranger Fjord will definitely not be forgotten! The incomparable natural beauty will take your breath away!
The place that shares its name with the fjord is rather small and quite unspectacular. Nevertheless, it offers a beautiful view of natural scenery with some nice shops and cafes. If you want to know more about the country and the people of this region, you should pay a visit to the modern Norwegian Fjord Center.
There is still much more about this wonderful place that is certainly worth a visit.
At Geiranger Fjord there are several magnificent waterfalls, such as the “bridal veil”. However, the “Seven sisters” are the best known. There are seven waterfalls directly next to each other with a drop height of up to 300 m (984 ft).
Waterfall “Friaren” is directly opposite and rumoured to be a suitor who wanted to marry each of the seven sisters. However, he was rejected by all and eventually gave in to liquor.
South of Geiranger is a 1,476 m (4,842 ft) high mountain peak called Dalsnibba. Even in summer, the mountain is often covered with snow.
There is also a new observation deck “Geiranger Skywalk”, from here you can have a fantastic view of Norway’s mountain landscape and the Geiranger Fjord which is 7 km (4.3 mi) away. With a little bit of luck, you can even see your cruise ship. On the way there you can also visit the famous lookout point Flydalsjuvet. It is probably one of the most popular places to take breathtaking photos in Norway and absolutely worth seeing.
