On the considerably long drive up to Geiranger from Oslo, Norway, travelers can easily get lost in the thriving nature of the Norwegian countryside. Full of yellow wildflowers and snow-capped mountains, even in the middle of July, this drive is nothing short of a dream.
As the destination draws near, travelers are greeted with a stunning bird’s eye view of the fjord and the surrounding town. With clouds that kiss the snowy mountaintops and waters as reflective as a vanity mirror, it is a truly breathtaking sight.
Hidden between the towering Scandinavian mountains of Norway lies Geirangerfjord, an impossibly colorful display of nature’s greatest feats. With waterfalls so tall and mighty they seem to flow from the sky itself, Geiranger is paradise on earth.
From a boat on the pier, the town is clearly visible. I highly recommend taking a fjord tour to get more in touch with the town’s culture. Audio guides provide interesting facts, captivating stories of local folklore, and helpful travel tips. While winters often have cold and dark nights that never end, the summers are a vision of natural growth and colorful serenity. However, it is absolutely imperative to be prepared for biting winds and chilling cold, no matter what time of year.
On top of the countless hiking areas, there are also tons of charming establishments that line the water’s edge, from ice cream shops to hotels and restaurants. Many of these places even provide piers to relax on and take in the simple wonders of your surroundings.
