Silversea Expedition Cruises À Cruise Storfjord

Cruise Storfjord

Storfjord or Storfjorden means Great Fjord; and there are several of them in Norway. The spectacular one we are visiting is in Møre og Romsdal county. The fjord is 110 kilometres (68 miles) long, cutting deep inland. The fjord once contained a glacier and the slow-moving river of ice carved the mountains on either side into steep dramatic cliffs. Side fjords enter Storfjord, which itself splits in two near the town of Stranda. View more

Villages and small farms make the most of the limited flat ground on the shore and side valleys. A cruise up and down the fjord gives terrific views of the scenery. It also allows you to spot wildlife—perhaps the White-tailed Eagle majestically soaring overhead or the Harbour Porpoise in the waters. You see few shore birds as there is nothing for them to stand on because the bottom has been carved out by the glacier to a great depth. Gulls, however, are ever present in these cool Northern Hemisphere waters. The cliffs have mostly been in place for thousands of years since the glaciers melted at the end of the last ice age. I said mostly. Local people had seen a widening crack high on a mountain, and on the 8th January 1730 the cliff gave way. Six million cubic metres of rock avalanched into the fjord creating a tsunami 30 metres (100 feet) high. The wave swept over Stranda destroying most buildings, killing 17 people and tossing boats into the churchyard. Look at Stranda today and you would think two things. One, nothing happened, and two, they think it won’t happen again.
