Foxdalen

360°-Panoramas

Lower Foxdalen

The cloud cover on this April day produces a halo, which is – in a wider sense, not physically exact – a bit similar to a rainbow. One difference is that a rainbow is created by water drop, whereas small ice crystals are responsible for the halo. The ice crystals do not break the visible light up into the various colours, hence the more uniform colour. You can see the Adventfjord in the distance. There are some huts in lower Foxdalen, where locals sometimes retreat for a calm weekend.

Foxdalen from Foxfonna

From the eastern side of the little ice cap of Foxfonna, southeast of mine 7, you have a great view over Foxdalen.
