Providing a truly spectacular view, the fjord is a UNESCO World Heritage site and enjoys a steady stream a tourists almost the year-round. It is known for its deserted farms, steep cliffs and waterfalls. If you ever find yourself there, be prepared to be amazed at the natural beauty of the place as it opens up panoramic views of natural splendour.  “The Seven Sisters” is perhaps the most famous waterfall located in the Fjord.

  • A tip for Cunard customers - book the RIB ride online before you go and it’s 50% cheaper. Same boat, same company.
  • The weather in Geiranger is cold and rainy, and hence is it recommended to carry clothes that can keep the person warm and are waterproof.
  • While going kayaking, it is recommended that a gopro is carried along to record the unbelievable views that one gets in the fjords.
  • There are 2 viewing points close to Geiranger, where one can reach by bus, but if someone is planning on getting there by foot, it is recommended to carry hiking shoes.
  • The boat trip between Hellesylt and Geiranger is quite spectacular. If possible, be sure you stay outside on the deck so that you can fully appreciate the fjord, maybe listening to the multi language tips given by the speakers.
