The Fjord Ranger Programme

The Fjord Ranger Programme is a newly developed communication programme for the Geirangerfjorden UNESCO World Heritage area. We would like to provide you as a visitor with the best experiences available, as well as letting you discover the authentic and unique World Heritage.

A Fjord Ranger has a vast knowledge and is happy to share this generously with you. Join one of our programmes and lay the foundation for meaningful and close-up experiences of our common World Heritage.


Fjord Ranger Base Camp programme

A customised outdoor activity programme for interactive learning, exploration and teamwork.

Are you curious about the fjord landscape and the people who live here?

Join our Fjord Ranger on a journey through time. See how the glaciers and rivers have shaped the landscape. Learn more about the diversity of the flora and fauna in the world heritage site, as well as the fragile biological interactions. Through teamwork and simple activities, you will set up your own small fjord farm building. This will give you a valuable insight into how people have survived in this beautiful, but untamed fjord landscape.

Fjord Ranger ship programme

Imagine being able to sail into the World Heritage fjords accompanied by an experienced and committed Fjord Ranger! In the ship program, our Fjord Rangers tell their stories from the unique nature surrounding you. The stories bring you all the way up to the mountain farms, situated on the edge of the cliffs. You will hear about the danger of avalanche, about the sea eagle hovering over the ship, about the formation of this landscape, and about the people who live here today.

However, the best experience will perhaps be the personal meeting with the Fjord Rangers? During a pleasant conversation, the Rangers may answer just your questions, lend you their binoculars and guide you in your experience of the unique World Heritage landscape.
