Description

”Die sieben Schwestern” gehören zu den am meisten fotografierten Wasserfällen des Geirangerfjords. Wie der Name schon sagt, stürzen hier am verlassenen Gehöft Knivsflå ganze sieben Wasserfälle senkrecht in den Fjord. Im Schnitt haben sie einen freien Fall von 250 Metern und in den wasserreichen Perioden sind sie ein beeindruckendes Schauspiel. Die Wassermenge ist von der Schneeschmelze und dem Niederschlag abhängig und bestimmt auch, wie deutlich man alle sieben Wasserfälle sehen kann. Normalerweise sind die Wasserfälle in der Schneeschmelze ab Mai bis Juli am größten. Am besten zu sehen sind sie, wenn man mit dem Boot auf den Geirangerfjord hinausfährt.
Die Sage erzählt, dass sämtliche „sieben Schwestern“ unverheiratet waren. Der Wasserfall auf der anderen Seite des Fjords heißt der „Freier“, nach mehreren missglückten Freierversuchen an die Schwestern.
