Geiranger Mount Dalsnibba Excursion Reviews

A highlight of any visit to Geiranger is a stop at the scenic overlook at Mt. Dalsnibba, perching 4,500 feet above sea level.
Floatable automatic pontoon dock extended to ship's porthole making ez off and on.
Floatable automatic pontoon dock extended to ship's porthole making ez off and on. Port town itself not much but does have free WiFi at TI. Geirangerbybus tour good value at half ship's excursion cost for same tour stops.

Geiranger going to Mount Dalsniba was brilliant and the views were breath-taking, we were lucky enough to have a clear day. Our guide was excellent too. Eagles road also provided an excellent viewpoint.

We purchased the ticket online well before the cruise. We paid 74 eur for two bus tickets. I think HAL charges 300 dollars for the same tour. Suprisingly the bus was almost empty. It was just another tourist pair in the whole bus so we had a kind of personal tour on a public bus! The driver even had a microphone and told us few stories during the travel time. The road to the Dalsnibba is amazing! I wish we could spend a few hours just walking in the mountains. The way lays through a beautiful lakes and fields and again mountains. Fantastic! The view from Dalsnibba is just outstanding! Do not be scared by the public bus tour - you will get a lot more for the cheaper price! As for Geiranger we did a hike upstairs to the waterfall. It was great but a very short hike. Read Less

Clear weather made this a spectacular trip, with an unforgettable view from 5,000 feet into the fiord. It would be disappointing if the weather were cloudy and rainy, as is apparently often the case.

We booked this tour independently, and the company (and tour guide) was fantastic. I highly recommend! Each stop (and the drive to reach them) was incredibly beautiful, and this tour managed to hit all three--the lookout over Geiranger fjord, Dalsnibba Lake, and Eagle Road. Much cheaper than the cruise ship, with fewer people and a strong itinerary. Read Less

Coach drive up mountain on private toll road to very summit with walkway projecting over cliff. Small cafe and shop with toilets. Brilliant summer day but still snow fields to walk on. Spectacular views en route with interesting guide explaining many aspects of local life. On way down asked to be dropped off at fjord centre museum and walked back to port alongside waterfalls and rapids (30 min) Fjord centre museum has a cafe and is well worth a look if you are enjoying the landscape Read Less

Strange timing here, we arrived before 9 so missed most of the fjord coming in and sailed late so missed most of it going out. I thought this was a fjord trip? Captain did a 360 at the 7 sisters and suitor waterfalls about 8.15 which we luckily caught. Beautiful valley to sail down, shame most of it is done at night. The tour to the Eagle road and mount Dalsinibba is brilliant (and much cheaper than the Celebrity version) try and sit at the front of the bus as it goes round the hairpins. Cross your fingers for no low cloud at the top as the view 5000 ft down is amazing. Again little else to do locally, rib boats probably best. Read Less

The cruise into Geiranger is beautiful and worth getting up early to witness (less crowded than the departure). It is a pretty town with a waterfall in the middle. We took a bus ride up to the top of Mount Dalsnibba where there are glaciers and a nice overlook. It is cooler and windier than down below. We were blessed by a clear sunny day. Read Less
