is one of Norway’s most visited tourist sites. In 2005 it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, jointly with the Naeroyfjord (the narrow fjord).

The Geirangerfjord is a 15 kilometre long branch of the Sunnylvsfjord, which is a branch of the Storfjord (Great Fjord), cutting in from the Atlantic coast just south of the coastal town of Alesund. The tiny village of Geiranger is located at the end of the fjord.
