On a cliff over Geirangerfjord, More and Romsdal, West Norway
The Geiranger fjord ("Geirangerfjorden" in Norwegian) in the Sunnmore region, at the southernmost part of More og Romsdal county, is a 15 kilometer long branch of Storfjord ("Great Fjord") and, jointly with Naeroyfjord, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The fjord is the crowing glory among Norway's fjord district's pearls of natural beauty and one of Norway's most visited tourist sites, with hundreds of thousands of tourists and cruise ship passengers from all four corners of the world visting it every year.
Majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, beautiful and wild waterfalls, lush, green vegetation and the deep blue waters of the fjord make it like something taken from a fairy tale.
