Tafjord is a place that I hope to visit again this Summer, if last Sunday wasn't actually all the Summer we're going to get.
I was thinking about the place today, so had a trawl through my pictures from last year.
First thing I stumbled on isn't actually a picture from Tafjord, it's from Eidsdal, but taken the same day. An absolute classic little shed.
Anyway, back to what I started to post about. Tafjord.
Sea access to Tafjord is from south of Ålesund, through Storfjorden, and Norddalsfjorden. Road access is from Sylte, which is on the tourist route between Geiranger and the Troll Road.
The village is not easy to get a picture of, although that's on the phot schedule for this year, but here's a shot looking up the river from the head of the fjord.
Currently in this area of Norway there are several places where the same thing could happen again, but thanks to careful monitoring of unstable chunks of rock, hopefully there will be a bit of warning.
Above Tafjord is a Hydro Electric dam, Zakariasdammen (Zacharias Dam).
On the way back, below the dam, is a beautiful lake called Onilsavatnet. Nothing special about mountain lakes here, until you look at the mountain on the other side of the lake.
As I said, this is a must visit destination for us during the holidays, so look out for a more detailed post. There are many interesting thing to explore in the area, such as an outdoor swimming pool heated by water from the power station, and a hydro electric museum. Maybe take the fishing tackle and try our luck in that lake as well.
Yun's aa fir enoo.
