Geiranger boat trip

The next day, we checked out of the hotel and went for a boat ride on the Geiranger fjord.

The two most notable waterfalls in the Geiranger Fjord are Seven Sisters Falls and the Suitor.

Both falls face one another across the fjord, and the Suitor is said to be trying to woo the sisters opposite.

It is said that the Suitor got turned down by the Seven Sisters and turned to drink and that is why you can see a bottle in the waterfall.

The Bridal Veil is another waterfall in the fjord, so named because it falls delicately over one rocky edge, and when seen back lit by the sun it has the appearance of a thin veil over the rocks.

The boat ride was really nice and the sunshine was warming us. The waterfalls did not have that much water in them at this time.

They are at their best when the snow is melting and when there has been a lot of rain. And in August, after a dry summer that is not really a thing.

We spent a little more than an hour on the fjord and it was really amazing. But then it was time to get back in the car and continue the journey.

Geiranger is really a place I would like to go back to, and that is not just because of the chocolate.
