Geiranger General Information
Geiranger is a tourist gateway to Norway’s UNESCO World Heritage Geirangerfjord. The Stranda municipality, Sunnmøre region fjord is one of the most popular destinations in Nordic Europe and a prominent 15 km offshoot of the massive Storfjord system. As a tidy base from which to explore the Geirangerfjord or indeed, Storgjord area and Sunnmøre region at large, Geiranger is a good bet.
The tidy village teems with hundreds of cruise ships from May to September, which in turn, ferry hundreds of thousands of passengers through the magnificent fjord landscapes of Geiranger. A union of sheer, precipitous cliffs and narrow, carved waterways, Geirangerfjord almost borders on the absurd: clearly, this is nature at its most dramatic. The few hotels that nestle at the head of the fjord provide a comfortable stay for visitors who want to take it all in over a few days, with all the inherent, brilliant panoramas to boot. More adventurous options to tour the contiguous landscape abound, from canoe and kayak trips to the Seven Sisters Waterfall to mountain treks to small, remote farms. Those who want a little more urban action in Sunnmøre can always drive two hours northwest to the small city of Alesund,
- Seven Sisters Waterfall
- Geiranger - From Fjord to Summit
- Fjord Tours
- Suitor Falls
- Bridal Veil Falls
- Lake Djupvatnet
- Restaurant Utsikten
- Olebuda Restaurant
- Weserås Restaurant
- There is no real nightlife in Geiranger, though visitors can head to Alesund, some 108 km away, which has a decent ensemble of bars.
