The best way to see Geiranger Fjord

Hi all,

A group 7 of us will arrive in Geiranger via MSC cruise. We don't know the best way to see Geiranger Fjord. MSC offer an excursion of 7h30 durration, it is too long, I am afraid

We don't want to kayak and would like to avoid the crowds, but not loosing any of the wonderful sights and places to discover around Geriranger (Flydalsjuvet, Ornesvingen - the Eagle Bend, Dypvanet, as well as beautiful and peaceful places...)

Can you offer any other suggestions on how we can see this fjord and other beautiful sites.

Cruise arrives at 8am EAT and leaves at 8pm EDT. Thanks a lot

Arriving on a cruise, you will sail up the fjord and sail down the same fjord on departing the village/harbour.

Getting to the viewpoints, you need transport.

Hard to avoid the crowds when you are part of a cruise contributing to the mass tourism. There may be several ships in depending on the date.

Thanks a lot for your reply

Can you give me an advice on choosing an appropriate transport, may be a private tour or public bus? It takes how far from port where the ship arrives to the parking of public bus? How we can get there?

Again, thanks

Geiranger is a tiny village and buses wait as Close as possible to the dock. But you should note that because of the large number of cruise passengers local transport options are quickly fully booked.

You can book a private tour (taxi or limouisine).
