Helicopter sightseeing Geiranger

 

This is undoubtedly the most spectacular way to see the Geirangerfjord, 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 will fly the entire length of the famous fjord, rising from sea level to spectacular alpine scenery. The flight route goes over 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.

The helicopters we use are recognised internationally both for safety and for being the best suited for scenic flights.
