From beautiful and wild scenery from Nordland, in this post, I will bring along some pictures from the island of Stord which are located in the western part of the Hardangerfjord not far from the North Sea. The island of Stord is situated just as south of Norway's second largest city Bergen. A few years ago Stord had been granted city status.
Stord is centrally located in the region of Sunnhordland.
On the first picture, we can part of the mountain party on the island, where the highest peak has an altitude of 752 meters.
The highest point we see in the picture is the Kattnakken where the tower stands. This mountain has an altitude of 724 meters.
The western landscape has a lot in common with nature further north in the country.
Nevertheless, there will be differences, between the mountains tend to be more eroded in this area of the country and thus round off compared to the more pointed peaks that I have experienced further north.
But lush is the landscape in on Stord and in Sunnhordland, with green slopes and lots of forests. Cultural memories are also found in the picture with some older houses that are well taken care of.
The last picture shows how to use the wood for firewood.
