Geiranger Hiking Westeras Excursion Reviews

Hike through some of the most pristine and picturesque countryside in Norway, pausing at mountain lookouts and even walking behind a roaring waterfall.

The hike up was a bit more than we anticipated (not everyone in our tour group made it up) but the views on the way up were amazing, even when it started to snow.

Moderate hike-steep and uneven terrain.
Moderate hike-steep and uneven terrain. Beautiful views the entire way to the waterfall. Great waffles at the end.

The hike itself was stellar.
The hike itself was stellar. Unbelievable beauty. However, there was no one to meet us at the port, which was very chaotic. We nearly missed our bus. I have never experienced this type of irresponsible treatment from Princess before.

Beautiful waterfall hike with delicious waffles and jam at the farm at the end. It isn't an extremely difficult hike but I don't think it was as easy as was described. It is an hour up to the waterfall and an hour back down. The path to get behind the falls is very steep and only 1 person can fit at a time. Read Less

Just about made this 2 km hike up to Westeras and the Storsaeterfossen waterfall in 1 hour. Took about 40 minutes to come down and had some waffles at the farm at the base of the hike. The views were well worth the hike, plus it had the added advantage of eating into some of the weight gain made on board the cruise. Read Less

You take a short 15 bus ride up half the mountain, they hike to old farm and from there hike to a waterfall. Afterwards you can hike in another direction to an nice overlook. There are sheep and goats all over, which are cute and some will let you pet them. Overall we enjoyed it, but $99 seemed like a lot to pay to hike. It also included one waffle and a cup of coffee in the old farm. I would go to this farm again if I visit the area, because there are several hikes you can take from this point. About the hike it was somewhat strenuous. Some in our group didn't make it. It was about 30-45 minutes UP HILL for first portion. We are younger and fit so this was perfect for us as we wanted to get a bit of a workout and do something somewhat adventurous, but if you are not in reasonable shape or have bad knees you may want to skip this one. It was about 5 miles total to go up to waterfall, come down, then go down to overlook and come back up to the farm. Read Less
