The Geirangerfjord is without doubt the most beautiful of the Norwegian fjords. Impressive mountains, plunging waterfalls and hillside farms give the place its unique character. From the tiny village of Geiranger, drive past the octagonal Geiranger Church, through the wild Flydal valley where you’ll stop at the top of an overhanging cliff. From here, feast your eyes on spectacular views of Geiranger village, the glistening fjord and the rugged peaks that surround it. The drive continues up to Lake Djupvatn and follows the road to the summit of Mount Dalsnibba, 1,500 metres high. From here, there’s an amazing panorama of mountains, waterfalls and lakes, and if the weather’s clear you can see the Geirangerfjord far below. On the return to Lake Djupvatn, take a moment to relax at Djupvasshytta Restaurant before looping back to Geiranger and your ship.
In case of road closures due to the snow, an alternative route and programme will be offered. In the morning, only guests joining overland tours from Hellesylt will leave the ship. The ship will then continue onto Geiranger were you can enjoy a selection of half day tours.
