Norway's legendary World Heritage Site
Cascading down the steep cliff face of Geirangerfjord in western Norway, the Seven Sisters Waterfall is one of the region's most dramatic, and most photographed, natural wonders.
Located 7km to the west of the village of Geiranger, at the head of the magnificent Geirangerfjord, the Seven Sisters Waterfall is a truly awe-inspiring sight and one of the real highlights of this wild region of Norway.
Standing at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Seven Sisters Waterfall - or Dei Sju Systre as it's known in Norwegian - plummets from a height of 410m down the sheer rock face to the surface of the fjord bellow.
As the name suggests, the falls are composed of seven distinct streams, and are associated with a local legend of seven unmarried sisters who repeatedly rejected marriage proposals from a lovestruck young man. He took to drink in despair, and is commemorated in another waterfall on the opposite side of the fjord, known as The Suitor. It is said to resemble the shape of a bottle.
The Seven Sisters Waterfall is a truly awe-inspiring sight and one of the real highlights of this wild region of Norway.
The Seven Sisters Waterfall is around 100km inland from the port of Ålesund, which stands at the entrance to Geirangerfjord, and makes an easy and unforgettable day excursion for those visiting Norway on a crewed yacht charter.
The falls are best appreciated from the water, but if you have time to explore further, the surrounding landscapes are perfect for hiking, with stunning views at every turn, while kayaking offers a unique perspective of the fjords. The little village of Geiranger, with its pretty white and red wooden houses, is also worth a visit.
