Welcome to Geirangerfjord


But with prestige comes popularity. Incredibly, up to one million visitors come here every year to see the sights and scores of cruise ships dock at the port each day in summer. At certain times of day you're unlikely to enjoy much peace and quiet, especially around the main port of Geiranger.

Thankfully, out on the fjord itself, peace and tranquillity remain and a ride on the Geiranger–Hellesylt ferry is an essential part of your Norwegian adventure.

Flydalsjuvet, offers an impressive view and is an excellent point for photography, with a view over Geiranger and Geirangerfjorden with the many cruise boats. Some of Norway's most popular travel photo images are taken here. Knuten, evidence of early road building skills. This specially marked road section, which has been named Knuten – the Knot – is still the same as when it was opened in 1882. It was constructed in connection with the work done on Geirangervegen to win height and navigate difficulties in the terrain. The construction in solid rock is witness to the engineering skills of its designers and those who built it, and it represents an important monument to the road-building pioneers who built Geirangervegen from 1881 and to the opening in 1889. Eagle Road (Ørnevegen), is the name given to the steepest stretch of road up the mountain side from Geiranger towards Eidsdal. The road swings through 11 hairpin bends up from the Geirangerfjord and to the highest point on the stretch, 620 metres above sea level at Korsmyra. The road was an attraction from the very first day, and was called Eagle Road because at its highest point it passed through terrain that had traditionally been the domain of a large number of eagles. Beatiful lakes and more !!! After your private shore excursion, return to Geiranger port to your ship.
