Geiranger is a small tourist village in Sunnmøre region of Møre og Romsdal county in the western part of Norway. It lies in Stranda Municipality at the head of the Geirangerfjorden, which is a branch of the large Storfjorden. The nearest city is Ålesund. Geiranger is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and has been named the best travel destination in Scandinavia by Lonely Planet. Since 2005, the Geirangerfjord area has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Seven sisters waterfalls is located just west of Geiranger road 63 that passes through the village.
Geiranger is under constant threat from the mountain Åkerneset which could erode into the fjord, and a collapse could cause a Tsunami that could destroy the village. Geiranger is the third biggest cruise ship port in Norway receiving 140 to 180 ships during the four month tourist season.
Geiranger is reached from 3 angles, either from Stryn or Skjåk on road 63 from road 15 or from Åndalsnes from road E136 to road 63. Or by boat on the fjord.
