Reaching for the sky

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Ashutosh Garg

Flydalsjuvet near Geiranger on Geirangerfjord, has a stupendous setting. To reach this magical view you have to scramble down about 150 meters from the road and then scramble on exposed rocks to reach the ledge about 500 metres above the fjord. Once there you can look down upon the village and the enormous cruise ships that pay a daily visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Geirangerfjord.

Location: Flydalsjuvet near Geiranger, Norway
