Mt. Sandfell

Mt. Sandfell

Both beautiful and rare

This 743-m-high rhyolite mountain above the fjord's south shore is a textbook example of a laccolith.

Some 600 m thick, Sandfell stands out as one of the clearest laccoliths from the Tertiary Period in the Northern Hemisphere.

The trail up is not staked, but the interesting walk takes only 2 to 3 hours.
