Alesund to Geiranger Round Trip in 7 Hours?

We will be on a cruise and were hoping to make a quick round trip from Alesund to Geiranger Fjiord in about 7 hours. Is this possible? How would we do this?

Thank you

Sorry, I don't think it is possible. There is a tour with public buses and ferries taking 10hrs. (11:00-21:00) and a round trip with Hurtigruten taking 8,5hrs. (9:30-18:00). If you rented a car and arranged to have it waiting at the dock upon your arrival, you could do it in 8hrs., but not in 7.

Is your cruise ship not going to the Geirangerfjord?

Thank you for your prompt reply. That is what we were afraid of.

Unfortunately not going to Geiranger, but we will be cruising Sognefjorden and plan an excursion to Flam (Flam Railway) and Voss and Aurlandsfjorden. So hopefully we will get a comparable fjord experience. We are very much looking forward to our second time in Norway.

Thank you very much!

Hopefully, you get a chance to experience the Nærøyfjord while in Flam. It is a spectacular branch of Sognefjorden and indeed comparable to the Geirangerfjord.

Great - glad to hear that because that is also part of that same day-long excursion. Thank you again!
