Kvæn­an­gen: Skor­pa and Jøkel­fjord

The wind had blown us away from seve­ral litt­le piers during the last cou­ple of days. Many of the­se litt­le piers are doubtful at best, and may even hap­pen that you approach one just to find out that it doesn’t exist any­mo­re … but today, we final­ly mana­ged to go along­side at Skor­pa. A beau­tiful litt­le island, with fan­ta­stic sce­n­ery – the hig­her per­spec­ti­ves requi­re some inte­res­t­ing hiking, though – and silent wit­nesses of island life of the past, which does not exist any­mo­re.

The most impres­si­ve bit of sce­n­ery in the who­le Kvæn­an­gen area, howe­ver, may well be Jøkel­fjord with its moun­ta­ins that tower a good 1000 met­res abo­ve the water and a gla­cier that is han­ging down over the hig­hest cliffs at the head of the fjord.
