fjord cruise in April

Hi,

I m gonna take part either on an organized Geiranger fjord excursion or a simple boat trip from Alesund to Geiranger and back. My problem is that all of the good organized fjord trips start from May or June. Is someone know any cruise ship/boat in mid April from Alesund? I really don't wanna miss this breath-taking fjord.

Hurtigruten sail Alesund to Geiranger back to Alesund from 15 April. Have a look at their web site for more details.

Thanks the answer. Yes I know about Hurtigruten. The main problem is that we ll be in Alesund from 9-11, so the 15th April is a bit late.. :( I m still trying to find a trip in the first half of April.

If there is no boat service at this time, consider renting a car for the day, that can also be very nice, with snow around etc.

If you can't get a boat trip do consider going by road, if possible. We went to Geiranger by Hurtigruten and back by coach. In many ways it was more impressive by coach. Cruising by ship all you see is the steep sides of the fjord but by road the views down into the fjord were so impressive. We stopped several times and the views were wonderful.

The drive along the northern shore of the main fjord (Storfjord) is also impressive if this is your first time in the area. Note that in April there is only one access to Geiranger - along road 63 from the north through the Eagle's road pass:
