Holiday in Geiranger for nature lovers
A trip to Geiranger is something you will never forget. This little village in the county of Møre og Romsdal boasts picturesque landscapes and exciting attractions. Go on a fjord sightseeing tour to discover what the whole world is talking about: Geirangerfjord was voted one of the world's most well-preserved World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 2006!
A camera is a must on a Geiranger holiday. Get yourself to the Flydalsjuvet viewpoint, and snap pictures that will take your friends' breath away. On the way to Eidsdal, along the Ørnevegen way, is another famous viewpoint—Ørnesvingen. From there, you can see all the way to the De Syv Søstre waterfall, and to the Knivsflå fjord farm.
Go on a weekend trip to Geiranger to experience mountain hiking in fantastic surroundings. There are well-signposted paths in the area, and hiking maps are available at the tourist information office. You can find everything from challenging hikes to the top, to lovely family-friendly walks. Half an hour's walk from Westerås Farm, you can even walk behind the Storsæterfossen waterfall, which will leave you in awe of the powerful forces of nature.
If you truly want to experience Geiranger up close, go on a fjord sightseeing trip or a so-called fjord safari. Get up close to the elements of nature, and see wild waterfalls, abandoned farms and much more. If you feel like exploring on your own, rent a kayak and glide across the fjord at your own pace. Kayak tours also come with a guide and a hike up to the fjord farms.
A holiday in Geiranger can also be a culinary journey. The area is known for its generous production of local food—on both large and small scales. Eat out to enjoy quality food made of local ingredients, or go directly to the source: the farms. You can buy almost anything there, from berries, fruit, juice and jam to cheese, butter and sausages. The rivers are full of salmon, and the fjord abounds in cod, saithe and pollock. You can also freely pick berries and mushrooms in the fields.
Geiranger is the place for you if you love Norwegian nature and charming village life. Come over and enjoy the surroundings in a large group, or get your own private slice of Norwegian romantic nationalism!
