Geirangerfjord - One of Norway’s most visited fjords
Explore the Geirangerfjord on our round trip Geiranger & Norway in a nutshell®.
- Has been included on UNESCO´s World Heritage List since 2005
- The Geirangerfjord is located in the county of Møre og Romsdal
- 15 kilometres long
- Depth of fjord: approx. 260 metres
- Highest mountain along the fjord: approx. 1,700 metres
Along the sides of the fjord, there a number of abandoned farms. The farms that are most commonly visited are Skageflå, Knivsflå and Blomberg. Skageflå can also be reached on foot from Geiranger, while the others can only be seen from the fjord.
The fjord also has several impressive waterfalls. The two most notable waterfalls in the Geirangerfjord are ‘de Syv Søstre’ (the seven sisters) and ‘Friaren’ (the suitor, also called the wooer). The two waterfalls face one another across the fjord, and the suitor is said to be trying to woo the sisters opposite.
Brudesløret (the bridal veil) is another waterfall on the fjord, thus named because it falls delicately over one rocky edge, and when seen backlit by the sun looks like a thin veil over the rocks.
A visit to the Geirangerfjord is included on the Geiranger & Norway in a nutshell® round trip.
