Getting from Alesund airport to Geiranger

Hi There,

Could anyone please advise on the best way to get to Geiranger from Alesund Vigra airport? Its seems quite complicated from what I have seen so far....is it possible by bus?

Many thanks in advance,

Jo

You will most probably have to go via Alesund, and get your transport from there.

When are you going ? It is a big difference between summer an winter - in wintery conditions all roads etc. may even be closed.

Ålesund airport is in the northwest corner of this district, Geiranger in the southeast/east corner some 120 km by road.

Winter:

You can take the airport bus to Moa terminal, change to local bus for Valldal, change to ferry at Linge, then new bus at Eidsdal. This is time consuming.

Summer:

Bus from Moa to Hellesylt, then ferry to Geiranger.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

I would like to go in the Summer - early July ideally - but unfortunately know nothing about the area other than there are many flights from London Heathrow to Alesund, which seems to be the best start!

Perhaps reserve a few days, rent a car and enjoy the luxury of going where you want and when you want?

Alternatively you can perhaps take Hurtigruten from Ålesund to Geiranger, or look for other sightseeing boats:

You can take the bus to Valldal and a sightseeing ferry to Geiranger.

You don't need to go exactly to Geiranger, it is a very nice place in summer, but crowded.
