Nordfjord is a narrow little northern branch of the very scenic Melfjord in Norway’s county of Nordland. It has a length of 14 kilometers and is 1 kilometer wide. Nordfjordholmen is a small and uninhabited island almost halfway into this northern branch. The island and neighboring islet narrow the fjord and guard the entrance of the Svartisen National Park, which reaches the eastern end of Nordfjord, one of Norway’s 36 areas proposed for marine protection and one of 12 fjords. Tranquil waters mirror the smooth mountains and streams, and birch forests line the shore. Mountain peaks can reach up to 1000 meters, but Nordfjordholmen is a quite small and low.
