Join us on a pleasant journey of discovery into the world heritage area Geirangerfjord. In winter and early spring, you can get to know the UNESCO Geirangerfjord without the large crowds. During this time there is a quiet calm over the landscape, the air is sharper, the light clearer and the shadows deepen.

On the trip you will experience the changes from the open coastal landscape to the narrow and dramatic fjords. You also travel through three fjords, and on the trip, you are accompanied by a fjord ranger who tells about how the forces of nature have shaped the landscape, about plants and animals that live here and about the people who have farmed the narrow mountain ledges.

In Geiranger, take the bus up to the famous lookout point Flydalsjuvet, where you can place yourself amidst the iconic image of the Geirangerfjord before driving on to the Norwegian Fjord Center, a world heritage visitor center. To complete the trip back down to the fjord and the fjord cruise boat you can opt for the bus or walk down the spectacular 327 steps of the waterfall stairway descending by the river.

Geiranger's Heritage

"The journey took us past many small villages, nestled among increasingly imposing mountains. As we approached Stranda, a significant village, Nicole suggested we go to the outer deck for a better view."
