In the afternoon the tour will go via Loen and Stryn, to the beautiful village of Hellesylt where you will board the ferry for the one hour’s cruise on the  Geiranger Fjord, which is considered to be the most impressive of all the Norwegian fjords. During the cruise, you will see some magnificent waterfalls, such as the Bridal Veil and the Seven Sisters. Your dinner will be served at the excellent Union Hotel, facing the Geiranger Fjord.
