Geiranger

After descending the serpentine road of eagles, we found ourselves in the village of Geiranger "located at the very end of Geirangerfjord. In the village constantly there are only about three hundred inhabitants. Residents earn almost exclusively on tourism. There will be regular flights to Geiranger Hurtigruten's passenger vessels, as well as more than a hundred other vessels, are also available cruise ships per year. Geiranger hotels and pensions are filled with fishing enthusiasts in summer, rock climbing and just Hiking along mountain paths. Places truly stunning, the atmosphere of this small town will last forever I remember a rich selection of Souvenirs and Handicrafts in the shops. So I also had a large selection of tourist clothing at frightening prices... my dream is to buy a membrane jacket made by Helly on this trip Hansen, so to speak, in the home of production, and only in Geiranger the first opportunity to touch the product and price it appeared. First, naturally, it made a favorable impression, but the second one put me in a bad mood. dejection...there was a faint hope that somewhere "not in the store for you tourists", the prices will be more humane, but alas... I still bought the jacket at the store. the last day of the trip, in a Helsinki Stockmann, and twice as much cheaper than in Geiranger. Well, what can I say here - the world leader in terms of quality life is leading in consumer prices, too, the Cafe prices are not happy, but hunger is not an aunt, and I had to go broke by buying a big hot hamburger that cost ten euros. In countries In Central Europe, such a dish costs half or half as much. Well, unless I saw similar prices in Lugano, Switzerland. By the way, I had no idea kopecks of national currencies in all three "non-Euro zone" countries of this region travel, and no inconvenience has never experienced - you can use a map pay for at least a glass of tea. I have also never seen the locals pay in cash.

В летнее время поселок наводнен туристами, которых привозят сюда круизные лайнеры, морские экспрессы Hurtigruten и паромы из Хелесилта. Ну и кто-то, как, например мы, спускаются с гор по Дороге орлов. В поселке несколько сувенирных магазинчиков, кафе, рестораны, прокат велосипедов и спортивного снаряжения, на пристанях предлагаются водные прогулки к знаменитым водопадам Гейрангерфьорда.
