Geirangerfjord II

Join us for a Geirangerfjord sightseeing onboard our comfortable speed-yacht. The deep blue UNESCO-protected Geirangerfjord, surrounded by majestic snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and lush, green vegetation. This round trip combines fjord sightseeing with an optional onshore event where you can join our certified guide for a hike to the ancient mountain farm Skageflå.

You would have to be exceptionally blasé if you fail to be impressed by this astounding creation of Mother Nature, emphasized by the will of man to maintain a foothold on the steep mountainsides and glean a living here. Impressive waterfalls cast cascades of thundering water from almost vertical mountainsides. The famous falls De syv søstrene (“the Seven Sisters”), Friaren (“the Suitor”) and Brudesløret (“the Bridal Veil”) tease the cliffs with feather‐light sheer veils of mist whose mission is to create a never‐ending display of changing rainbows to fill you with delight and wonder.

Geiranger is in the process of being certified as a Sustainable Destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism. In addition to providing visitors with enjoyable experiences, Geiranger wishes to preserve the local nature, culture and environment, strengthen social values and be economically viable. The municipality and the travel industry cooperate closely to assure that the destination is a great place both to live in and to visit. (Reference: visitnorway.com)

The optional hike is demanding. The duration is about 5 hours, some parts of the path are steep with a breathtaking view. Reasonable fitness and adequate hiking-shoes is a must.
