    Geiranger is famous also for the beautiful waterfalls in the area.

    Everybody is talking about the stunning Seven Sisters and Bride Veil waterfalls that you can admire a boat trip around Geiranger fjord.

    But also on the road to Geiranger coming from south and after passing Geiranger there are interesting waterfalls, although not as famous as the ones in Geiranger, but still beautiful.

    View from Dalsniba

    View from Dalsnibba on the clouds above Geirangerfjord.

    This mountain is only 1,476 meters high,but gives great views on Geirangerfjord on clear days, but the view on cloudy days can be magnificent too.

    A tollroad leads you to the top of the mountain.

    Cruising into Hellesylt was beautiful! We weren't getting off, but quite a few people were, and then doing a tour by land to Geiranger, where-as, we were staying on the Ship and heading to Geiranger that way!

    It was early morning in late July, and the fog was hanging low. We could still see the small village which is at the head of the Sunnylvsfjord, which is a branch of the Storfjord (Great Fjord).

    The village is in a picturesque position, surrounded by Mountains. The Hellesylt waterfall is in centre of town, and in early August, had a huge amount of water passing over it and into the fjord.
    Wow! What a great introduction to Norway!

    Kvivsflaa is really the beaten path but if you like it more remote ..

    If you look closely you'll see an isolated cabin up there. This is where our royal family had their celebration some years ago with royal visitors from all over Scandinavia. They even rented a helicopter to get them all up there. It's possible to get up there by walking. I still have problems understanding how. I know some tourists have camped on this area or even rented the cabin. i want to do that next year.
