Fjord cruise between Geiranger and Hellesylt

The Geirangerfjord is on a lot of people’s bucket list and a must to see when travelling in Western Norway, and the best way to do this is by boat. It takes 1 hour and 5 minutes to sail through the 15-kilometre-long branch of the Storfjord going from Hellesylt to Geiranger, and you will have the best views to the fantastic scenery the whole journey.

The route is operated by traditional car ferries, perfect for you who are on road trip in the fjord region and want to bring your vehicle on board. On board there is a café selling light meals such as the traditional pancakes called “svele” and hot and cold beverages. Passengers are welcome to go outside on deck, and the audio guide on board tells the stories about the area and the sights you pass by.

We are then ready to set out in the fjord and explore its stunning nature.

While we follow the shoreline from Hellesylt, we will have good chances to spot some local wildlife, such as otters, porpoises and eagles. The guide will tell you stories about the mountain farms in the area as well as about the mountain Åkerneset, which is on its way to fall down in the fjord.
