More about Hotel Geiranger

Friendly people, beautiful nature and a murder

by Hildeal

This is one of the things the Norwegians usually associate with Geiranger. In 1995 a young Norwegian girl(Trude) working at Geiranger Hotel was found killed and raped outside of the centre of Geirangero but apparetly nobody saw or heard anything. This was a really frightening incident in the history of Geiranger.

So if you saw, heard ,felt or pictured something, please tell me..or the police

How to get to Geiranger from Olden?

by Itchiefeet

We are currently staying at Melkevoll Bretun and will be going to Geiranger on 20 June from Olden but not sure if there are buses connection from Olden. After Geiranger, we want to go to Alesund on 22 June, what is the best way to travel there? Bus, boat? From Alesund we need to get to Andalsnes on 24 June to catch our train to Lilehammer.

Thank you for any useful info you can provide.

You can also make a detour by the famous Trollstigen and Åndalsnes to Ålesund.

Geiranger - Åndalsnes:

Travel Tips for Geiranger

A garden with a view

by evaanna

The garden at the back of our house was the main reason why we stayed there four times already. It was a charming place on the slope of the cliff going all the way down to the fjord.
The fjord and the whole village of Geiranger lay in the valley before us. We could see ferries and smaller boats come and go and, in later years, one or two anchored on the fjord for the night lit up like a Christmas tree for a night party. Looking to the right, we could see coaches and cars climbing or descending the winding road, but we could hardly hear them. By late afternoon they were all gone and only a waterfall rumbling nearby disturbed the silence of the mountains.
Looking up, you could see a few houses and huts scattered on the mountainside and some pastures here and there amidst the forest. Our landlady kept some sheep permanently in one of them in the summer. There was no shepherd to mind them but they were in no danger of dispersing. The cliff was so steep that they needed help to get down.
Our garden was tiny but there were some flower pots and benches and an enormous mast with the Norwegian flag as is the custom in many houses in Norway. In late August you could still see a few strawberries and the luscious grass showed no sign of autumn coming.
An even better view could have been had from the back porch just above the garden but we liked it down there and hope to be back some day.

visiting Knivsflå

by Hildeal

the green ocean, looking at the cruise ships. living almost like they did a hundred years ago. the total peace. Listening to the sounds of the fjords all day. Waking up to a wonderful sight every morning.

Definitely a warm coat

by Diana75

Even in August it's pretty cold in the fjords region and on the mountains picks there is also snow.

If you climb the mountains, especially if you go on Dalsnibba, a warm coat is definitely a must, but also a rain coat will help. Mandatory. The view of the fjords creates real artists of the camera.

Electricity

by sim1


In case you want to bring any electrical appliances with you, here is the system Norway uses: 220 volts and 50 Hz. It is a round pin attachment plug (see picture)

An adapter will allow you to plug an appliance designed for one type of outlet into another type of outlet. Despite the fact that more than a dozen different types of plugs are in use, a typical travel adapter kit usually contains about five adapters which are capable of dealing with most of the outlets shown here. Adapters often manage this versatility by bypassing the ground/earth wire.


Beware: an adapter by itself will not change the electrical voltage. You must be sure that your appliance can handle different voltages (either automatically or through a voltage switches). If it can't, you will need a voltage converter.
