The beautiful Geirangerfjord

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.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
