Geiranger, Norway Luxury Cruises

Located in the south western part of Norway the small town of Geiranger is home to some of the world's most breath-taking scenery. Since 2005, the town and surrounding areas have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site to protect their natural beauty. There are only 250 permanent residents in the town despite it being Norway's third largest cruise port. As you glide up the fjord you'll get a fine view of the towering mountainous scenery that surrounds you. It's the best way to see this spectacular Norwegian fjord.

Sightseeing in Geiranger

Whether you arrive during the summer or winter months, the scenery about the tourist town of Geiranger is spectacular. There are plenty of activities to enjoy here, with the mountains and fjords serving as an awe-inspiring backdrop, and with such strong bonds to the great outdoors, many tourist favourite activities take full advantage of the natural environment. Here are just of few of the attractions and activities you might want to try:

Take the time to visit the Norwegian Fjord Centre in Geiranger. You can visit the old farm buildings and learn about the fjord people and their lifestyles. The centre uses state of the art technology to explain about the natural hazards that affect the area, how they use the waters to generate hydroelectric power as well as the surrounding fauna and flora.

After experiencing the fjord from the luxury of your cruise liner see it from a much more personal level in a kayak. There are several hire companies if you fancy discovering the coastal area independently or you could join an organised tour. The fjords are home to stunning waterfall displays and as you glide through the waters you can look up and see mountain farms built on ledges that seem to defy gravity and logic.

If you are visiting during the winter months then you can enjoy skiing in the area, with snow-covered summits reaching 1500 meters. During the summer months skiing is still available at the Tystigbreen Glacier which is approximately an hour away from the town.

One of the main attractions to be enjoyed in the area is hiking and walking through the spectacular landscape. There are a variety of routes available for all abilities. The trails are clearly marked and you can get a good map in the town to keep you on the right track or join a guided walk. If you are feeling particularly fit then you could head up to one of the viewpoints just out from the centre. They're a steep climb but the views over the fjord make the trek worthwhile. Flatter walks can be found along the water's edge.

Shopping in Geiranger

Despite its small size, the town of Geiranger has ample shopping opportunities catering to the tourist market. Near to the ferry terminal, guests will find a large souvenir shop which sells some beautiful pieces of glassware and silver along with traditional souvenirs. Close to the pier, you can pick up knitwear from Dale of Norway as well as pewter and crystal items. The Norwegian Fjord Centre has a small gift shop that sells locally produced crafts which are unique to typical mass-produced tourist trinkets.

Dining in Geiranger

After a day experiencing the natural beauty of the area and learning about its heritage and culture, the Villa de Sving is a wonderful place to spend an hour or two with aromatic coffees or a chilled glass of wine to relax with. The café serves simple light meals and snacks in a homely surroundings. The Brasserie Posten close to the port offers a more extensive menu, using locally sourced ingredients in simply prepared dishes. It is located by the main dock and the outside terrace affords diners panoramic views around the fjord.
