The iconic Geirangerfjord is considered one of the most beautiful fjords in the world, and is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list together with the Nærøyfjord
The Geirangerfjord is one of Norway’s most popular natural attractions. The fjord is 260 metres deep while the surrounding mountains are 1600-1700 metres high. The fjord is also known for its spectacular waterfalls and deserted fjord farms high up on the steep cliffsides. The idyllic nature and the dramatic mountains will impress any visitor in the area.
The now deserted fjord farms tell the tales of a different time and way of life. You can visit some of the farms, such as Skageflå, Knivsflå, Blomberg, Matvik, Syltevik and Westerås. You can spend the night at Westerås, sample the local food served at the outdoor restaurant, whilst enjoying the spectacular view of the fjord below.
The famous and characteristic waterfall “The Seven Sisters” is situated halfway through the fjord. When you visit the Geiranger area, it is possible to stop at amazing viewpoints, such as Dalsnibba, Flydalsjuvet and Ørnesvingen.
