Gudvangen and Geiranger, two villages in the central fjords, are some of the most popular cruise ship anchorages in Scandinavia.

What to watch


The most amazing view of the fjord opens from the Flüdalsjuvet rock, which seems to be floating in the air - practically, “at the threshold to heaven”. Other famous local attractions are the waterfalls "Bridal Veil" and "Seven Sisters", falling from somewhere in the dense forests directly into the mirror-like surface of the fjord.
