Mt Dalsnibba & the Norwegian Fjord Center
Local Sightseeing, All
Information not currently available.
Approximately 3¼ Hours
Your coach climbs the winding mountain road from Geiranger and up the hairpin bend road to the summit of Mt Dalsnibba. Here you will take in the incomparable views of Geirangerfjord -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With each turn in the road, the panorama unfolds -- mountains and forests, streams and tiny towns clinging bravely to the steep hillsides.
The Norwegian Fjord Center seen from above resembles a spearhead pointing to the fjord. The design was well chosen, since 'geir' means 'to point'. At the Fjord Farms exhibit, you might believe you've been transported back in time 100 years as you encounter the challenges and dangers facing rural dwellers here in Norway. The Avalanche Experience exposes these massive forces of nature that obliterate everything in their path. Fjord Communication represents the fjord boats and the quayside milieu. The Geiranger Road Experience shows the building of the Geiranger road.
Walk down the hill back to the pier (15 minutes) past the octagonal Geiranger church, or return to the ship by coach.
Mount Dalsnibba is a steep mountain road with several hairpin bends and may close at short notice due to adverse weather conditions. Views are weather dependent.
