Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Western Norway / More og Romsdal / Stranda / Geiranger / The Seven Sisters
Rising high above the coastline, The Seven Sisters showcases seven separate streams of water, all of which descend into a fjord. Legend says that the unmarried sisters turned into stone while pursuing a fiery horseman they fell in love with. A single waterfall called "the suitor" sits directly across from the fjord, as if courting the sisters. You can appreciate the beauty of this landscape from the deck of a cruise ship or from the seat of a bike, but many visitors choose to feel the might of the waterfalls by hiking along well-marked trails. The view from the highest fall, measuring 250 m (820 ft), provides the widest panoramic view of numerous islands, islets, and rocky reefs, as well as of the north hills and mountain peaks. To plan Geiranger vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
The Seven Sisters Reviews
If you take the ferry to Geiranger, you will pass by and be told the story/legend of the Seven Sisters, in particular the two unmarried ones and their potential suitor. I won't give any more away... more »
Very scenic and peaceful what more can you say! Surrounded by lush valleys and mountains with waterfalls. more »
The waterfalls were not flowing in October when I visited. It is probably a springtime waterfall.
We saw the Seven Sisters Waterfall from the Geiranger - Hellesyst Ferry. Whilst the ferry ride was amazing, the Seven Sisters Waterfall lacked luster. Maybe because it was in later August and didn't have much flow. The other waterfalls along the ferry ride were much more impressive. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but if you're on the way than definitely check it out. Norway has many more impressive waterfalls!
