Helicopter sightseeing

Geiranger round trip by helicopter

This is undoubtedly the most spectacular way to see the fjord, the glaciers and the rugged, snow-capped mountains. Designed to thrill, the flight is relaxed and leisurely, whilst revealing a dramatic panorama of the Geirangerfjord and surrounding mountains. You’ll fly the entire length of the famous fjord, rising from sea level to spectacular alpine scenery. The flight path takes you from the magnificent Mt. Dalsnibba, past rugged cliffs, cascading waterfalls, fjord farms, snow-capped mountain peaks, glaciers with crevasses and icefalls, and back to the lush green of the fjord below.
