The Geirangerfjord, which made the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005, is Norway's most spectacular and perhaps best-known fjord. The 16-km-long (10-mile-long), 960-foot-deep Geirangerfjord's most stunning attractions are its roaring waterfalls—the Seven Sisters, the Bridal Veil, and the Suitor. Perched on mountain ledges along the fjord, deserted farms at Skageflå and Knivsflå are being restored and maintained by local enthusiasts. View more

Gain an insight into mountain farming as you visit one of the authentic summer farms Norway has to offer - the Herdalssetra Mountain Farm. From the village of Geiranger at the head of the famous Geirangerfjord, depart the pier by coach and travel up the 'Eagle's Road'.
Arriving at the 'Eagle's Bend', stop to take some photos and enjoy the splendid view of the fjord below and surrounding mountains. Catch a glimpse of the waterfalls, the 'Seven Sisters' in the distance, as well as some of the abandoned mountain farms clinging to the sheer cliff sides.
Continue next towards the Eid Lake, surrounded by attractive farms. Pass Eidsdal Village and travel further to the next village called Nordal. Leaving the fjord, the drive up the valley brings you to the cheese farm, Herdalssetra. The setting here is spectacular, and during the summer months approximately 450 goats roam about freely, in addition to cows, sheep and the fjord horses. This region is known for its goat cheese, both white and brown, and today, you will learn about the production process. Other dairy products are also created at this more than 300-year-old mountain farm.
Taking a closer look at the farm, which consists of 30 houses in all, you might notice that the small wooden houses with turfed roofs were built on a safe spot, away from the annual avalanches under the mighty peak called Heregga. After touring the farm, an introduction to cheese making is combined with a tasting of their delicious products.
