The place to experience Norwegian fjord culture.
Wander around authentic old farm buildings, dramatic tableaux and a captivating picture show - it is so realistic that it is like travelling back hundreds of years in time. The visit takes about an hour, but the memories last a lifetime!
The information centre at Norwegian Fjord center provides basic information about the Geirangerfjorden World Heritage Site. Beginning with the life and work of the fjord folk, you will learn about the unique and rich history, the colourful people and the fabulous natural scenery of the area. The very latest technology is used to provide information about everything from landslides, hydroelectric power development, flora and fauna, road construction, tourism and transport to everyday life and nature.
The multi-media show "Frå fjell til fjord" ("From Mountains to Fjord") shows this World Heritage Site throughout the four seasons. It features a collection of magnificent images of the landscape, from high mountains to the fjord, accompanied by a specially-composed musical soundtrack. It is a wonderful way to learn about the history, culture and nature of the area.
