Description

Friaren –The Suitor – lies on the opposite bank to Dei sju systre – The Seven Sisters – in the Geirangerfjord. The falls are not particularly high, but are split at the centre, revealing a rock face in a form that resembles a bottle. Legend has it that the Suitor was constantly proposing to the beautiful Seven Sisters on the other side of the fjord, but he was steadfastly refused, and in his despair, turned to drink.
