The Geirangerfjord

The Geiranger Fjord is called "the jewel in the crown of the Norwegian fjords". It is one of the most dramatic and visited attractions in Norway.

The deep blue Geirangerfjord is 20 km long and surrounded by beautiful snow-covered mountain peaks, incredible waterfalls and a fertile, beautiful scenery. It is located in the Sunnmøre region of Møre and Romsdal country not so far from Ålesund.

It is recommended to take a cruise sightseeing tour here. Spoil yourself with all kind of amazing nature experiences from lush green landscapes with snow-covered mountain tops, enjoy the fresh air and some of the world-famous waterfalls like the "The Seven Sisters".

If you have the chance to stop in one of the cosy fjord villages on a cruise or by car, you will never regret. The small village of Geiranger is located at the end of the fjord where the Geirangelva River empties into it.
