Trip Report Geiranger 2 nights July 2013

We arrived via Hurtigruten – enjoyed the 4 hour voyage and the weather was glorious by the time we arrived. The harbour was unsurprisingly busy but had a nice atmosphere. We walked up the hill (2.5 km) to our cabin at Hole Hytteutleige at 250m. The hut was basic but charming in the most fabulous peaceful location with wonderful views. Lovely people running the place too. Again, great value at 450 NOK a night. After taking off our rucksacks (phew!) we hiked up to Storseterfossen, description here world-of-waterfalls.com/norway-storseterfoss… . We really enjoyed this, especially going behind the waterfall. Then back down to make supper and relax while enjoying the view. The following morning we walked down and took the MS Geirangerfjord out on the fjord. The little Viking boat was out and they seemed to be having great fun, brandishing their swords at any boat they came near! Although we’d already seen the fjord/waterfalls from Hurtigruten we did get a different view from lower down. We were dropped off at the jetty to hike up to Skagaflå, a steep climb but just under 30 minutes so not too long and a good path (repaired by Sherpas after a rockfall a couple of years ago) with ropes at the steep bits. Predictably wonderful views! Interesting too. We had planned to hike over to Homlong but instead walked down and took the boat back as my OH wanted to do the Sky to Fjord bike trip (the one where you cheat by being driven up then cycle down!). Expensive but an incredible experience, especially with the perfect weather. We both loved it. After that we bought some food in the Joker store and walked up the hill to cook supper. I still had a bit of energy so walked along to the Løsta viewpoint for yet another angle of the fjord and the Eagle Road. Will never tire of this scenery!
