Store Trolltind & Trollfjord, Norway

A GORGEOUS Norway view from a swap earlier this year. Thank you so much, Sissel, I absolutely adore this card!

Store Trolltind is the highest point along the Trolltindane ridge. It has the vertical Trollveggen cliff separating the peak from the Romsdalen valley below, a drop of about 1,700 metres which makes it the highest vertical cliff in Europe.

The Trollfjord (Trollfjorden) is a 2 km long sidearm of the Raftsund between the Norwegian archipelagos of Lofoten and Vesterålen. With its narrow entrance and steep-sided mountains, Trollfjord cuts westwards from the Raftsundet strait. The name is derived from troll, a figure from Norse mythology.
