A port of call in Geiranger, Norway, is a highlight on Norwegian cruise itineraries. Geiranger is tucked away right at the head of Geirangerfjord and it is the focal point for all the awe-inspiring scenery that surrounds the tiny town. The adventurous and scenic Geiranger shore excursions will get you a front row seat to all there is to see and do while on a cruise to Geiranger.
One of the top things to do in Geiranger from a cruise is to visit the Norwegian Fjord Center, which is the perfect introduction to the region and the magnificent fjords of Norway. Geiranger shore excursions that stop at Norwegian Fjord Center also usually go to other top sites near Geiranger as well.
Some of these stops include a drive to Mount Dalsnibba, which is the highest fjord outlook point in Europe that is accessible by vehicle. Mount Dalsnibba overlooks Geirangerfjord and its skywalk gives you a majestic view of the deep crevice in the earth stretching out below you.
If you want to pair exhilarating adventure with stunning vistas, head up to Djupvasshytta Lodge for a fantastic view before getting on a bicycle to ride back down the mountainside (a 4,000 foot descent!).
Adventure seekers will also enjoy one of the Geiranger shore excursions that goes out onto the water of the fjord. You can take a charter boat ride or hop into a kayak and paddle your way around Geirangerfjord, during which you’ll see Seven Sisters Waterfall and some of the other cascading falls located in the area.
While in Geiranger, you can also head into the nearby countryside to visit a mountain farm, where you’ll see goats, cows, and sheep. In addition to the animals, you’ll delight in the old-fashioned workings of the farm and learning more about how it is run. Enjoy some goat cheese and fudge before returning to Geiranger.
From fjords to mountaintops, these cruise tours will take you to some of the most picture-perfect and memorable spots in Norway.
