“Amazing place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Geiranger beauty is overwhelming with mountains and waterfalls around you . Its an amazing sight to watch ships sailing across the Fjord . One must experience both the cruise and road as both give totally a different view . We spent 3 days in the Fjord and rented out a self cattering hotel next to the waterfall with a panaromic view of Fjord and surrounding mountains .If you are looking for a place to get lost in the nature , this is the place to be.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

An amazing place, worth the journey up,the mountains to see the Fjord, we took both roads and saw it from different directions. Geiranger is a tiny place and is totally overwhelmed when there are cruise ships in port, so if you aren't on a cruise ship then I would suggest you avoid the days they are there! A magical place worth a visit.

“Waterfalls, waterfalls and more waterfallls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The Bridal Veil falls, the 7 sisters, the suitor, these are the main ones, however there are many more and all beautiful. The fjord is awe inspiring, nothing like it in our USA. Your cruise ship looks like a toy when seen from the fjord.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

But so much tourists!
If you want to visit it by car, check wheter there will be cruise ships in the fjord. They bring along an overload of tourists and smoke that will hang half way up the fjord.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

We took a boat ride through the fjord and the scenery was unlike anything I have ever seen. This place is amazing. Although it is a long way from home, I definitely will be back someday. When we first arrived, it looked so surreal and it reminded me of the setting of the Lord of the Rings.
