Day 6 – Geiranger

Today was my turn to drive, and it was a longer day with several things happening. Firstly we were to drive to Stranda Ski Village to take the gondola up to the top of the mountain.

View from Stranda What a view! We sat down at the restaurant at the top and had some meat soup (yum!). We pottered about for a bit before taking the gondola back down. There was free WiFi up there too – so obviously we uploaded some piccies to social media ๐Ÿ˜‰ And then I went on Pokemon…… Geiranger

Then we drove on to Hellesylt to get the ferry to Geiranger. This wasn’t quite as good as I was expecting. It was a nice hour journey, but it wasn’t the best. The views, as kB rightly pointed out, are better from higher up not lower down.

At Stranda

Once we were off the ferry we had two view points that I wanted to shoot from. The first one was in the opposite direction to home, and it was a really steep, really windy road. Because it was in the opposite direction it meant I had to drive up, and then back down it.
The second view point was up the Eagle Road, which was another steep, windy road but this was more like the troll road so it was a bit better to drive up. After that it was back to the hotel.
