The Seven Sisters are among the most photographed waterfalls of Norway's UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord. No less than seven waterfalls descend into the fjord, with an average fall of around 250 metres (820 feet).

The water level is dependent on the snow thaw and precipitation and may affect whether it is possible to see all seven falls equally clearly. The falls are naturally more visible during the major snow melting period between May and July and can be best observed by taking a boat trip on the Geirangerfjord.

The legend has it that the Seven Sisters were all unmarried, and the waterfall on the other side of the fjord has been called 'The Suitor' after several unsuccessful attempts to court the sisters.
