Description

A circular group of mountains with jagged summits slopes down toward the Norwegian Sea in Nordland county. The author describes this scenery as follows:

… But a few miles more brought us to a scene of desolate grandeur, rendered more striking by the contrast. The headland which divides the north and south Folden fjords may vie with the Aiguilles of Mont Blanc in the fantastic singularity of its forms. I have nowhere seen summits more perfectly acuminated. The principal group is arranged in what is often, though inaccurately, called a crater form—making, apparently, almost a circle of steep peaks, the principal outlet being towards the sea.
