Once upon a time, there was a land with majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and lush, green vegetation...
...It's not just a fairytale, though.
In the Geirangerfjord area, it's reality!
Whether hiking or sightseeing, you are guaranteed to appreciate the stunning views in this UNESCO-listed area in Fjord Norway.
Stay for a while, there is so much to do!
Rent a kayak and enjoy the water surrounded by majestic mountains.
Get ready for an adrenaline rush!
Whizz through the air on a zip line, or feel your heart race with some canyoning.
Or take a winter cruise from Geiranger to Ålesund and experience untouched nature in a dramatic, varied and historic fjord landscape!
Ready for some dramatic Norwegian roads?
Drive carefully as you navigate the hairpin curves on Ørnevegen (Eagle Road), on the Norwegian Scenic Route between Trollstigen and Geiranger.
Stop and take a deep breath at the Ørnesvingen viewing point.
For an even more airy experience, check out the Geiranger Skywalk viewing point at Dalsnibba, 1,500 meters above sea level.
You can drive all the way up!
Are you getting hungry now?
Delicious food awaits!
Enjoy a fresh view of nature right on your plate. This area has many restaurants that take pride in serving you food with a local twist.
Or do you want to pick your own food?
In Norway, you can pick wild strawberries, blueberries and other tasty berries in the woods. Many farms also let you pick your own fresh berries and fruit straight from the orchard.
Or simply visit Valldal, known as the ‘strawberry valley’ and buy some freshly picked strawberries!
At Valldal Safteri you can taste juice and jams made from fresh local berries!
After a long day of activities, enjoy a relaxing spa at Hotel Union.
Or spend the night surrounded by natural beauty ...
... in the middle of a picturesque canyon at Juvet Landscape Hotel.
Geiranger has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.
You can help to reduce your own footprint, too, by staying longer. There is so much to see and do!
...or simply relax. The landscapes will soothe you regardless.
Travel off season, and experience the area's unique tranquillity. Bliss!
