"Geiranger" Geiranger by Dabs

Geiranger Travel Guide: 168 reviews and 488 photos

Geiranger was the 3rd stop on our Cunard cruise through Norway. I had originally signed up for a kayaking trip through Cunard but then found we could do it on our own and then found a trip that sounded more interesting up to Mt. Dalsnibba. We were able to find an independent excursion to Mt. Dalsnibba for 250NOK ($42US), the same trip was $72US on Cunard and appeared to be roughly the same trip without a snack stop. I had reserved in advance before I left home but you can wait until you get there as it wasn't fully booked and we would have had plenty of time to get to their offices.

The tiny town of Geiranger, population around 300, is located at the end of the Geirangerfjord. A short bus ride away and you can get a good view from above at Flydalsvulet, a common stop on most bus trips.

    Was the scenery amazing? Disney just came out with their summer 2015 itineraries and there are a couple of really good ones.... It's a tough choice between going further north in Norway or doing some Norway, going to Iceland (3 days) and the Faroe Islands....

      It was slightly more appealing than the hot dog wagon ;-)

      reluctantly, we eat at McDonald's in Scandinavia as well and it is because of the cost effectiveness to feed hungry kids! I will be in Stavanger for a week with my 13 year old while my husband is at a conference. Would you please share some contact information for the excursions? I would love to go to Geiranger either by boat or by bus, and maybe Mt. Dalsnibba. Too expensive to rent a car in Norway (more than double the cost of Skania,where we will be arriving from). Thank you!

    Love the scenery, especially the waterfalls, but I was surprised to see it so bleak and snowy in July

      It's not very cold here, for January (about 7 C today) but it won't stop raining!

      I think cold rain is just about the worst weather you can have, yuck!

    So glad I found your page because we are/were considering a cruise from the Netherlands to Norway!! All of your tips are extremely useful and your photos are great. Curious just how big of a discount you got by waiting to book your cruise!

      I think it was billed as 2 for 1 fares which on Cunard comes out to be comparable to the other lines such as Royal Caribbean and Princess. Hope you find a lovely cruise, Cunard was a little too fancy for us but if you like elegance, it might be a good line for you!

    Love the snow at the mountaintop - looks like my kind of destination!

    I enjoyed your page Kristi. We were here August 1st in 2011. I found it interesting seeing the difference of weather between your holiday and ours, only one week apart, but a different year. I wonder if this year was much colder than last year.

    I'd like to see the fjords and waterfalls of Norway some day - very scenic and unspoilt. Great write ups of your experiences!
    We finally opted for Dominican Republic as #71. Not sure whether it'll be feasible to make Haiti #72, but I'll be reading up to see if it's a possibility. It seems a shame not to when it's sooooooo close! ;-)
