Geiranger, Norway

Each of Norway's fjords has its own special attraction, but one of the most outstanding is without doubt the Geirangerfjord. Breathtaking waterfalls with names like 'The Seven Sisters' and 'The Suitor' course down steep, opposing cliffs which loom over the deep, narrow waterway. At the head of the fjord lies the charming village of Geiranger. Its inhabitants are mostly self-sustaining, building their own homes, furniture and boats, and spinning their wool during the long winter months when the area is cut off from the rest of the world. Geiranger is a popular starting point for spectacular mountain rides full of hairpin turns, stunning scenery and splendid views.
