Cruise Storfjord and Sunnylvsfjord,
Surrounded by the Sunnmøre Alps, Storfjord inspires awe with its natural beauty. These fjords make up a region full of raw beauty of white-capped mountains, flowering fruit trees, impressive granite walls, mountain-ledge farms, and small bays that protect hidden, quaint villages. Storfjord cuts deep into the mountains of Sunnmøre where it divides into the smaller fjords, including Sunnylvsfjord (the innermost fjord) and finally the magnificent Geirangerfjord. Sunnylsvsfjord ranges from 600 to 2,000 meters (2,000 to 6,600 ft.) wide and the fjord reaches 452 meters (1,483 ft.) below sea level at its deepest point before it branches off to the west to Geirangerfjord. Of Norway’s many fjords, Geirangerfjord is doubtless the most beautiful and is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Its Impressive mountains, numerous waterfalls as well as farms clinging to the steep hillsides give the fjord its unique character. Because of limited area for development, all settlements on these fjords are small villages many of which are home to the ancestors of people who have lived there for centuries. Take in sites and natural vistas, including the octagonal Geiranger Church, the wild Flydal valley, Lake Djupvatn, and a panoramic view of mountains, waterfalls and lakes at the summit of Mount Dalsnibba (1,500 meters).
