Making the Most of Geiranger, Norway

Making the Most of Geiranger, Norway


GETTING THERE

Due to the small size of this village, Disney Magic cruisers will take a tender to the Geirangerfjord Cruise Terminal. Surprisingly, there’s room for up to five ships to tender at a time (making for a lot of visitors on a busy day). From the cruise terminal, you can walk to a number of places, thanks to the fact that the village can be crossed end to end in under 10 minutes. Internet access is available at the tourist office nearby; wi-fi access is at Cafe Ole and the grocery store. All-ashore time is 8:30 am and all-aboard time is 4:30 pm.

GETTING AROUND

Geiranger is a very walkable place. You can walk everywhere in the village—to get to the Geiranger Church and Fjordcenter (see below), expect a 10-15 minute walk up Geiranger’s main road. Buses are also an option: the city sightseeing bus offers 90-minute tours to two scenic viewpoints, Flydalsjuvet and Ornevegen (Eagle’s Bend). If you’re hoping to go a bit further afield (such as to the Westeras Farm) and don’t want to hike, taxis are available at the port.

Geiranger is safe, unless you consider the beating your wallet will get from the high cost of food and souvenirs. Also be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and bring rain gear on any excursions off the ship. On foggy days, the spectacular views we rave about may be completely shrouded.

SIGHTSEEING

Port adventures for Geiranger include bus tours to stunning viewpoints, RIB boat (rigid-inflatable boats) and kayak tours, a nature hike to the Storseter waterfall, visits to farms, a downhill bike ride, and even a helicopter tour. If you want to get the best close-up view of the fjord, consider the kayak or RIB tours, which take you to the Seven Sisters Waterfalls. If you want to strike out on your own, you can get a hiking map from the tourist office and explore the area on foot.

DINING

Hungry? There are plenty of eateries and cafes in the village. If you want to try some quintessential Norwegian food, try the Cafe Ole where you can get goat, lamb, venison, salted cod, and cured salmon.
