Geiranger
Norway

Geiranger is a small village located at the end of a beautiful fjord. A fjord interpretation centre and an octagonal church are located in the village. This port is a starting point for nature excursions.

Sailing in this fjord, on arrival and departure, will certainly be one of the highlights of your cruise. The Geirangerfjord is a natural site protected by UNESCO and you can admire the landscape and the many waterfalls including the “seven sisters”. Legend has it that the seven sisters did not find a suitable husband and their tears form the fall. Across the river, a fall surrond what appers to be a bottle-shaped rock that depicts a man who has been refused his marriage proposals by the seven sisters and drowned his sorrow in alcohol.

The tourist centre at the port offers a variety of excursions. This port is very busy, so it is recommended to book your excursions in advance if one of them is particularly close to your heart.
