Lomfjord: Faks­e­vå­gen, Fak­sef­jel­let

Lomfjord is a side bay in the nort­hern part of Hin­lo­pen Strait. It is not the world’s big­gest fjord, but it has one lovely side bay on its wes­tern side, cal­led Faks­e­vå­gen (Fak­se bay). In con­trast to most other are­as around Hin­lo­pen Strait, you can find some green tun­dra are­as in Faks­e­vå­gen. It is gre­at to go for some walks or hikes here. Hiking oppor­tu­nities inclu­de the moun­tain Fak­se­fel­let. With its maximi­mum height of 360 m, it is not Mount Ever­est, but still, the view from the top, which is deco­ra­ted with a lar­ge erra­tic boul­der, is stun­ning. You can see almost the who­le Lomfjord and lar­ge parts of nort­hern Hin­lo­pen Strait from the­re.

The geo­lo­gy adds fine struc­tures and colours to the moun­tain slo­pes.
