The tour starts in Hellesylt, a small village with a spectacular waterfall, situated at the very end of the Sunnylvsfjord. We drive towards the lake of Hornindal, famous not only for its natural beauty, but also for being the deepest lake in Europe. According to a local legend, a sea serpent lives somewhere in its farthest depths.
We follow the Nordfjord until we arrive in Stryn. This charming village is situated where the Stryn river, famous for its salmon fishing, meets the Nordfjord. Here you will also have free time to explore the village and its streets and stores.
After the visit in Stryn, the journey continues towards Oppstrynsvatnet, a beautiful turquoise coloured lake situated next to the Jostedal Glacier National Park Center. From there, we travel through the picturesque Hjelle valley with its many colourful farms. As the road goes up into the mountains, you will notice how the landscape rapidly changes from a green and fertile countryside to a rugged mountain landscape with impressive peaks. Shortly before reaching the high mountain plateau, there will be a photo stop at the famous waterfall of Øvstefossen. From a platform you will be able to take great pictures of this majestic and loud wonder of nature.
Next up is the challenging road to the top of Mount Dalsnibba. At almost 1500 meters above sea level, the Mount Dalsnibba Sky Walk offers Europe’s highest fjord view accessible by road. Enjoy the amazing view over UNESCO's Geirangerfjord and the spectacular mountains. The bus will drive down the steep and winding road towards Flydalsjuvet, a stunning gorge where we will have another opportunity to take in the beautiful view. We continue the journey towards the idyllic village of Geiranger, the endpoint of our wonderful excursion.
