Wintercruise to Geirangerfjord from Ålesund
Join us on Winter Fjord cruise to the UNESCO world heritage area of Geiranger - peaceful, raw and wild.
On the trip you will experience the changes from the open coastal landscape to the narrow and dramatic fjords. You also travel through three fjords, and on the trip, you are accompanied by a fjordranger who tells about how the forces of nature have shaped the landscape, about plants and animals that live here and about the people who have farmed the narrow mountain ledges. In winter and early spring, you can get to know the UNESCO Geirangerfjord without the large crowds. During this time there is a quiet calm over the landscape, the air is sharper, the light clearer and the shadows deepen.
