Mount Dalsnibba Geiranger Norway is a mountain peak and scenic overlook located high above the small town of Geiranger, Norway. It is reached by ascending a steep, windy road fraught with switchbacks. We had been concerned when out cruise ship pulled into port in Geiranger Norway as the sky was all grey clouds. Luckily, this was not the case at the top of Mount Dalsnibba Geiranger Norway. At the top of the mountain, the sun was shining and the sky was blue.

I peeked my sleepy eyes out of the balcony door and saw a sheet of low, grey fog, just above us, obscuring our views of the top half of the fjords. Dismayed, I wondered what we would be able to do that was worthwhile on such a foggy, rainy day.
As it turns out, even a foggy day in Geirangerfjord Norway is not a lost cause. Upon stepping off of the ship’s tender, we headed to the tourist information office (conveniently located right on the pier) to examine our options for activities.
The small town or Geiranger, Norway has a year round population of under 300 people. In the peak of summer travel seasons, this little town can see as many as 9,000 cruise ship passengers come ashore in a single day!

Mount Dalsnibba Geiranger Norway
Mount Dalsnibba, the peak high above Geiranger quickly became a front runner for destinations for one big reason. The bus driver had reported that it was sunny up there, as the peak was above the low lying clouds that blanketed the fjord. We were in.
The 2 hour bus trip to Dalsnibba set us back about $90 for the two of us, so it was a little bit of a splurge, but it was completely worthwhile and required little advanced planning on our part.
The fruits of our splurge were amazing. Stunning scenery as we drove up followed by a breathtaking high mountain lake with water so blue I almost thought that we were in the Caribbean. The grand finale was the view from the top of Mount Dalsnibba of of the tops of the Fjords sitting in a blanket of white clouds and a sea of blue sky.
On the way back down the mountain, we had asked the bus driver to drop us off at the turn off of the RV63 (the main road out of Geiranger towards Vesterås and also the trail head to Storseterfossen waterfall.)
