Sorte Ø

360°-Panorama

Sor­te Ø („Black Island“) is lying in inner Scores­by­sund, bet­ween nort­hern Rødefjord in the west, Sne­sund in the east and Storeø in the north. It is typi­cal for the regio­nal geo­mor­pho­lo­gy that Storeø’s eas­tern shore is a steep rock cliff, whe­re­as the slo­pes on the wes­tern and nort­hern side, more expo­sed to the ero­si­ve powers of the ice age gla­ciers, are sof­ter and more gent­le, giving some tun­dra space to grow and allowing for some walks up to ele­va­tions, from which you have good views over the sur­roun­ding water­ways with count­less drif­ting ice­bergs and the coasts of the sur­roun­ding lands and islands, inclu­ding Mil­ne Land, which is steep and gla­cier-cove­r­ed on top.
