Enjoy this amazing land excursion to Geiranger and Trollstigen hairpin road, disembark in tender boats in Geiranger

This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.

The trip begins with a drive up the Eagle Road, enjoying magnificent views of Geirangerfjord en route to the beautiful Eidsdal Lake. From there a picturesque ferry ride from Eidsdal to Linge. Back on dry land, we head for the stark, wild, high-alpine areas, stopping en route for photos at the impressive Gudbrands Gorge.

As we continue from here, we reach one of the many highlights of this trip; the series of 11 hairpin bends down the winding Trollstigen Pass (hairpin road). At the bottom you will be served a hot drink and a bite to eat before you continue on to the gentler landscape of the Romsdalsfjord. The trip concludes with dinner in Molde before meeting the Hurtigruten ship again.
