About the Geirangerfjord
The Geirangerfjord is one of the most famous and beautiful fjords of Norway and since July 2005 it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It lies about 200 km as the crow flies from Bergen and 280 km away from Oslo. With a length of about 15 km and a width of 0.6 - 1.3 km, it is a tributary of the Stortfjord. It was named after the town of Geiranger, which is located at the end of the fjord. Today, the Geirangerfjord is one of the most famous and worth seeing fjords of Norway. In summer, the fjord can be reached by ferry. In winter this is unfortunately not possible due to the high risk of lavines.

Directly at the entrance to the Geirangerfjord is the well-known town of Ålesund, which was named the most beautiful city in Norway. These two highlights on your journey through Norway are just a short distance away and are well worth visiting. The most important cultural and historical sites in the region include the fjord farms - at dizzying heights, these old farms can still be found today. Partly restored, here fruit could be grown due to the mild climate and in the summer almost 24 hours of sunlight. Another highlght is the waterfalls - "The Seven Sisters".
