Geiranger, Norway

Geiranger is a tender port – Ships have to anchor off Geiranger and tender passengers ashore by boat. When tendering is required, guests using mobility devices will not be transferred into or out of the tender. Many tender ports do not provide wheelchair access so even if the guest can board the tender they may not be able to disembark ashore. Again the shore-side facilities, movement of the tender, weather and tidal conditions can also preclude tendering.

Geiranger, Norway

Geiranger is a small village in Sunnmøre, on the western part of Norway in Scandinavia.
