View of Geiranger from Ørnevegen, "The Eagle's Road". Geiranger is a well-known tourist destination, but now the tourist season is coming to an end and cruise ships will stop polluting the air. The cone-shaped mountain to the left is called Dalsnibba (1476 m) and there is a pay road to the splendid view on its top.

Geiranger viewed from the top of Flydalsjuvet (the Flydal Gorge) where the tourists stop to test their acrophobia, besides admiring the view (most of them keep inside the rails). The zigzagging "Eagle's Road" (previous picture) above and right of the center of the picture.

Do you see the girl in red coat at the edge of the precipice, outside the rails? (She didn't pose for me.)

Geiranger, old picture

U.S. Library of Congress, Photochrom Print Collection.

Colored black and white picture, probably 1890–1900. Essentially same view as above. This was long before the "Eagle's Road" was built, but farmland in the steep hillside is discernible.


There is also a picture of the Geiranger church Geiranger church Geiranger church in the Church section.
