Sorgfjord: Mag­da­len­af­jel­let


Sorgfjord is a beau­ti­ful area for hiking. The nort­hern part of Mag­da­len­af­jel­let can be reached rela­tively easi­ly with a bit of stami­na and surefoo­ted­ness.

It is a walk of several kilo­me­tres across the coas­tal plain, cove­r­ed with old rai­sed beaches. This area can be qui­te wet, espe­cial­ly in the ear­ly sum­mer. Then, you pass this litt­le incis­ed river val­ley. A lovely place to have an exten­ded rest 🙂

Get­ting to a place that pro­vi­des views like this is not for ever­y­bo­dy, but ener­ge­tic hikers will cer­tain­ly not expe­ri­ence this as tech­ni­cal­ly dif­fi­cult. This is the nort­hern part of the moun­tain Mag­da­len­af­jel­let, which stret­ches for several kilo­me­tres in a north-south direc­tion. Other parts are also acces­si­ble, but they are more dif­fi­cult. The stee­per slo­pes are gene­ral­ly cove­r­ed with loo­se rocks deri­ved from frost-shat­ter and they are qui­te chal­len­ging. The Arc­tic is path­less ter­rain. But the view is worth all the effort! Of cour­se, you need the wea­ther on your side …
