The Geiranger Fjord is one of Norway's most visited tourist sites. The fjord is about 15 km long and 1.5 km wide at its widest part. It is a spectacular creation by glaciers. The fjord is surrounded by some of the steepest mountains on the entire west coast. It is very narrow and has no habitable shore area. Along the fjord's sides there lie a number of abandoned farms. The fjord is host to several impressive waterfalls. The two most notable are Seven Sisters Falls and the Suitor. Both falls face one another across the fjord, and the Suitor is said to be trying to woo the sisters opposite. The most popular way of seeing the fjord is by ferry or by taking the famous Trollstigen road, built in 1936 in an amazing feat of engineering, which snakes up steep mountain sides. The small village of Geiranger is located at the end of the fjord where the Geirangelva river empties into it.
