Waterfalls in Geirangerfjord, a romantic legend

When sailing in the Geiranger Fjord in Norway, admire the magnificent waterfalls. Before your arrival in Geiranger village, there are the 2 most famous waterfalls of the fjord. They look at each other.

The first waterfall is called the Seven Sisters Waterfall as it is composed of seven separate streams with a free fall that measures 250m.

These seven streams gave their names to the legend of the Seven Sisters that stayed single all life long because they had refused the advances of their suitor situated right in front of them.

In fact in front of the waterfall, there is the Suitor Waterfall, the courter being a rejected lover who felt so miserable that he drowned his sorrows, thus explaining why the mouth of the waterfall looks like a bottle.
