Hike through some of the most pristine and picturesque countryside in Norway, pausing at mountain lookouts and even walking behind a roaring waterfall.

After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief drive up a winding roadway past tiny Geiranger Church, a wooden structure built in the shape of an octagon in 1842. Continuing on through numerous hairpin turns, you will soon reach the Hole Hytteutliege camping site, where your hike will begin.

The path zigzags up the mountainside through pastures where straw was once gathered and transported along aerial wires to the barns nearby. In time, you will arrive at the spectacular Storseter Waterfall, which thunders out of a rocky ledge and roars down nearly 100 feet into a clear stream below. The highlight here is that the stone path leads behind the cascading falls, presenting you with the rare perspective of the other side of the waterfall.

Before long, the path descends and the terrain opens up to sweeping views of mountains and emerald-green valleys. Westeras Farm offers another stunning vantage point, as it overlooks Geiranger and its namesake deep-blue fjord. The natural beauty of the sheer cliffs, coniferous forests and rugged mountains is so breathtaking that the fjord has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site. Following a coffee break at the farm, you will continue the descent back to the camping site and then transfer back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 hours of moderate to strenuous mountain hiking over hilly and uneven terrain. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Layered clothing to include a water/windproof jacket; sun cap; sun glasses; and flat, sturdy hiking boots are recommended.
