Geiranger, More og Romsdal

Introduction to Geiranger, More og Romsdal

The scenery around the attractive town of Geiranger is some of the most breathtaking in Europe; Geirangerfjord itself is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kayak the clear blue water and see abandoned farms clinging to near-vertical cliffs and tumbling waterfalls such as the Seven Sisters, the Suitor and the Bridal Veil. For less energetic visitors, a walk along the waterside is a delight to be savoured.

This small, attractive town is at the end of the Geirangerfjord, one of the arms of the Storfjord. The scenery around Geiranger is some of the most stunning in Europe, no wonder then that since 2005 the Geirangerfjord itself has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hour-long cruise from Hellesylt, at the mouth of the fjord, to Geiranger is a breathtaking experience. Farms, mostly abandoned, cling to near vertical cliffs and waterfalls with evocative names, including the Seven Sisters, the Suitor and the Bridal Veil, tumble down into the clear blue water.

Each June the Geiranger ‘fjord-to-summit’ event takes place. This is a half-marathon run followed by a bike ride that takes competitors up almost 1,500m from the fjord to the top of Mount Dalsnibba. For less energetic visitors, the walks along the waterside are a delight to be savoured.
