All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
Geirangerfjord is one of the most famous and beautiful fjords in Norway, earning it a UNESCO listing in 2005. Featuring steep mountain walls, no habitable shoreline, and several enormous waterfalls, the fjord is certain to take your breath away. The little town of Geiranger at the far end of the fjord provided the inspiration for the setting of Disney’s Frozen.
You’ll also visit traditional farms along the way. Known as mountain-and-fjord farms, they historically sustained themselves with fishing in the fjord and farming on the mountainsides. The turf roofs and remote settings feel like a step back in time.
You will be met at the waterfront in front of Hellesylt Camping in Hellesylt around 10:30. Your host will be in touch before the trip to finalise details.
Your tour will end at the same place as where you started in Hellesylt. Your host will be in touch before the trip to finalise details.
