Every year, between 150 and 200 cruise ships come to Geiranger.
Geiranger lies at the head of the Geiranger fjord, which is a branch of the Storfjord. The nearest city is Alesund.
Geiranger is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and has been named the best travel destination in Scandinavia by Lonely Planet.

Each year in June at Geiranger, the "Fjord to Summit" event is held. It comprises a half marathon run and a bicycle race, both starting from the sea level at the fjord and ending at the summit of Mount Dalsnibba.
