The UNESCO listed fjord landscape
When you see it, there is no wonder why the Geirangerfjord is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The fjord is surrounded by a pristine landscape of steep, tall mountains and cascading waterfalls such as the Knivsflå waterfalls which is known as the Seven Sisters and the the Suitor. The small farms you can see clinging to the mountain sides, seems almost uninhabitable. They have stayed more or less untouched in modern times and are only accessible by boat and foot.
Together with the Nærøyfjord, the Geirangerfjord has been on the World Heritage List since 2005 as West Norwegian Fjords. According to UNESCO, the two fjords are considered as archetypical fjord landscapes and among the most scenically outstanding anywhere.
