Considered the crown jewel of all fjords, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a winding strip of deep water between high cliffs that were formed by the glaciers. It offers breathtaking scenery with impressive waterfalls. One of the most photographed is the "Seven Sisters," a multitiered waterfall which legend says is named after seven women who were unsuccessfully courted. This also explains why the waterfall on the opposite side of the fjord is called "The Suitor."

When your ship cruises up the Geirangerfjord, make sure you’re on deck to see the show. The water laps the edge of green farmland and forests that extend right to the foot of massive walls of rock rising impossibly high. Waterfalls look like great white cracks in the stone—until you hear the voluminous froth crash and splash into the deep, dark waters.
