Stranda, Geiranger, Hellesylt
PICTURES from STRANDA
The tourist trade in Stranda municipality is varied and robust. The villages are Geiranger, Hellesylt and Liabygda. Geiranger and its fjord are examples of Mother Earth at her most beautiful and impressive. Stranda has a very varied economy with a wide range of jobs. It has 160 modern meat-production, dairy farms and shopping opportunities.

 The Seven Sisters  
The Seven Sisters (Knivsflåfossen) is the 39th tallest waterfall in Norway. The waterfall consists of seven separate streams, and it is located along the Geirangefjord. The tallest of these has a free fall of 250 metres.

Standing on the deck of the boat and feeling the spray of the water from these waterfalls is a unique experience. The waterfall is located just south of the historic Knivsflå farm, across the fjord from the old Skageflå farm. The falls are about 6.5 kilometres west of the village of Geiranger.
