SHORE EXCURSIONS View all excursions
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.
Behold the waterfalls of Geirangerfjord as you follow a winding road up to Eagle’s Bend viewpoint. It crowns a series of 11 hairpin bends and offers some of the most breathtaking views imaginable. Afterwards, return on the same road to your next stop - the interactive Norwegian Fjord Centre. Here, get an insight into life on the farms that cling to the mountainsides. And check out some of the great exhibitions based on nature, culture and history. A simulated avalanche gives you a graphic demonstration of the forces of nature at their wildest and guarantees your visit will be a memorable one. Afterwards, follow the Geiranger road to the famous Flydal Gorge viewpoint and get a picture of your ship down on the fjord.
From the village of Geiranger, this tour takes you towards Eagle's Bend Road. From this stellar viewpoint, you’ll get a great view of the fjord below and the mountains that surround it. Keep your eyes peeled for the famous Seven Sisters Waterfall and look out for the abandoned mountain farms that cling to the cliff-sides. You’ll carry on through a mountain pass towards beautiful Lake Eid. At Herdal Home Farm, goats and fjord horses native to the west coast graze on emerald meadows. During your visit, you’ll get to see how goats’ cheese is made and you’ll get to try some, too. On your way down the valley, pass the Herdola River which cascades in a series of waterfalls, and arrive back in Geiranger via that scenic Eagle's Road.
