One of Norway’s most popular tourist destinations, Geiranger has nevertheless managed to retain an authentic feel. It’s definitely for the tourists, but in a nice way. The tiny village is situated right at the head of the dramatic Geirangerfjord, with sloping, craggy hills providing an awe-inspiring backdrop, and stunning blue waters and steep mountains unfolding at the foot of the village. We had an excellent lunch at ***Brasserie Posten in Geiranger.

We entered on a boat (the ***ferry from Hellesylt), which was absolutely worth it. Stunning scenery! Weather note – these photos were taken in mid-August, which was definitely not summer anymore.

Also in Hellesylt: **The Peer Gynt Galleriet, odd and impressive place, massive wood carvings and a local history place. Worth it if you have time before the ferry.
