Shortly after leaving Loen we spied a good omen for our journey: the rainbow, here only moderately enhanced for viewing by Photoshop.
The journey from Geiranger to Ålesund required us to first ascend the Eagle Road, a series of 11 switchbacks from sea level to where the Eagles fly. Lots of turnouts for gawking along the way.
Half an hour out of Ålesund it was time to board another ferry, then onward to our next stop.
Herewith, some additional photos from the day's scenic journey:

The lower switchbacks of the Eagle Road wind their way up.
A Hurtigruten makes its way on the northward sail to Kirkenes from Geiranger.
