Fjord Norway Vestland BREMANGER

Ålfot glacier

  •  /  km From You
Overview

The Ålfotbreen and the Gjegnalund glacier are the most western glaciers in Norway. The area in the most rainy area in Europe, where it is estimated that there is at least 5500mm of rain a year.

The climate here is arctic, and even on a hot summer day you have to dress well and be well prepared to walk in the area. The area is one of the areas that were last explored and mapped in Norway, so this is wilderness at its best.

The glaciers and its surrounding areas are protected landscapes and are intervention-free, while all the water, lakes and waterfalls surrounding it are regulated for power generation. The area is characterized by the unique and special shelf landscape of Devonian sandstone, where one may begin to wonder if one has not lost himself to a completely different planet than the Earth. It is absolutely unique place to be.


These are the crushed remains of the Caledonian mountain range that stretched as high as the Himalayan mountains 400 years ago. When the mountain was eroded, the masses of sand ended in what is today called the Hornelen Basin - here they gradually drifted westward, thus forming shelves, which under enormous pressure in the earth's crust became firm bedrock, which have subsequently been pushed up to new mountains.

There are over 200 such shelves from the Svelgen area in the west, to Hyen in the east. Sand stone is impossible to polish, so it has a tremendous grip on climbing. There are many cliffs and cliffs in the area with different degrees of difficulty, the most likely being the Gallery wall at Gjegnen, which is over a kilometer vertical.
