Discover why beautiful Geirangerfjord is called the “jewel” of the fjords as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Framed by a stunning mountainous backdrop, it’s situated between two snow-covered peaks and steep-sided rock walls. Thunderous waterfalls rushing down add to its allure. The Seven Sisters and The Suitor are two more facing each other across the fjord. Bridal Veil is, yet another, incredible waterfall named for the semi-sheer mist enveloping the rocks when snow melts and water cascades down the mountainside in the spring. Backlit by sunshine it creates an awe-inspiring sight.
