Located in the Sunnmøre region of Norway's Møre og Romsdal county lies Geiranger, a charming tourist village situated at the head of the Geirangerfjorden. This branch of the Storfjorden has garnered international recognition for its breathtaking landscapes and was even named Scandinavia's top travel destination by Lonely Planet. It comes as no surprise that in 2005, the Geirangerfjord area was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just west of Geiranger, one can find the Seven Sisters waterfall and "The Suitor" waterfall directly across it. The village is easily accessible via Norwegian County Road 63 and is home to Geiranger Church, serving as the main place of worship for both locals and visitors alike.
