If you want to experience the Norway nature and see the fjords, the Overland tour from Hellesylt to Geiranger is the way to do it. It’s fantastic. The highlight of the whole cruise. You get to see Norway from the inside and not just from a dock. Lakes, valleys, mountains, fjords.... unbelievable. It was the most expensive tour, but it was worth every penny. The best pictures and memories of the cruise come from this tour. Highly recommend.
We did the Mountain Farm visit. Expectations were not high. What a surprise. Most gorgeous landscapes you could ever wish for. Felt like we had been dropped into a Lord of the Rings set.
The town here is Geiranger which has 200 people and booking a ship excursion would be advised here. Hiking, biking, and kayaking in this area. A spectacular trip is taking the ship excursion via bus up the road to the Dalsnibba viewpoint. At 45ooo feet elevation (way above the tree line) you have a spectacular view of Norway's mountain and way below you can see your ship which is now tiny in comparison. Fabulous sight. We went on the 8 hour bus tour that eventually got here. Better would be the 3 hour trip which would give you some time to kick around tiny Geiranger on your own.

Geiranger was the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. Happy to drop people off in Hellesylt and sit up on deck to watch the boat cruise into the fjord. Here we booked a RIB boat tour direct with the company and paid less then half the excursion and had less people on our boat. Amazing tour would not hesitate to recommend. You can also rent bikes right at the port which we did and bikes around the town.
Did not get off ship here.....was a drop off for full day excursions ending in Geiranger. The scenery---waterfalls, mountains, fjords were spectacular!!!
