There is a long set of steps on one side of the waterfall, so that you can get close to it and appreciate the power of the water. Plenty of photo opportunities

Went up and down to the village following the trail (a lot of steps) along this gorgeous cascade. There is a lot of photo opportunities along the way. Magical moment!!

From the museum to the port, there is a trail along the river/falls. Seems to be new in June 2019. Also the trails go further. Look for the trail map.

While waiting to board our Panorama Bus tour, we walked up to see the waterfall. The walk is easy-medium but it is very nice and lots of nice spots to take photos of the falls

A short walk from the town will lead you to the steps that follow this awesome waterfall. It is so powerful, you cant help feel the energy as you climb the steps and head to the top. Its not the easiest of walks and when...More

A must see location, force of nature at whole its glory. You can get to this point from either the bottom of the waterfall or from the top, both directions are exciting (although my personal opinion is that coming from the bottom is more exciting)....More

Geiranger is a small place but there are lovely walks. Up past the little, but well kept church (which has a grand view over the town) there is a road to the waterfall. Walk down from the top and the sight and sound of the...More

Yes. Once on land, you walk to the Geiranger camping, over a small bridge, then turn left. You will see and hear the waterfall. You climb along the waterfall by stairs and the Fjord museum is at to top of the stairs.
