We’ll be landing at Urke on a small boat (RIB). Getting on and off the boat requires good mobility.
Explore some of Norway’s most dramatic landscapes and see steep mountains plunge into the fjords. We’ll travel by bus from Urke and through the enchanting Norangsdalen valley. Soak in the scenery of the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord from a ferry, before traveling up the mountains for breathtaking views at the Flydalsjuvet viewpoint.
As we travel on to Eidsdal, you’ll feel like you’re flying as we take the ‘Eagle Road.’ This steep route consists of 11 hairpin bends that offer spectacular views at each turn.
