When your ship reaches the head of the Geirangerfjord, where it will anchor for the day, look up, way up. Towering above you is Mount Dalsnibba, snow-covered even in summer. The mass of solid rock rises 1,476 meters (4,843 feet) above the fjord. A road leads to the peak, so you can sign up for a tour later in the day to get spectacular views of the fjord and surrounding countryside looking the other way—down. A gorgeous new viewing platform opens in June 2016.
