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.

Discover the famous Geirangerfjord

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.

Explore Geiranger

While a cruise on the fjord is the main highlight, take the time to explore the charming village when you are in Geiranger. In the main street you find small individual stores selling locally produced items, such as mouth-watering chocolate. Fossestien is a path following the impressive waterfall from the fjord up to Hotel Union Geiranger. At the top you can pay a visit to the Norwegian Fjord Centre to learn more about the geology of the landscape and culture by the fjord.

There are several viewpoints in the hills above the town centre with spectacular views towards the fjord. If you do not have your own car to take you there, opt to hire an electrical bicycle or eMobility car from the town centre. Read more about what to do in Geiranger here.
