The route & cruise experience

The boat makes stops along the route, so you can experience how people traditionally traveled to Geiranger before the development of the road network. A new and unique audio guide for this route, in Norwegian and English, has been locally written to gather the stories of the fjord farms and areas only accessible by boat.

The cruise takes about three hours each way and you can enjoy a cup of coffee, light refreshments and great views while traveling from the ocean to the fjord. 

Upon arrival in Geiranger, you have three hours to explore the village, enjoy some lunch, join a sightseeing tour by bus, taxi or e-car. While in Geiranger you can adventure to the closest viewpoints Eagle bend or Flydalsjuvet, or perhaps even visit the spectacular views of the Dalsnibba / Geiranger Skywalk.
