Travel Videos: ‘Feel The Mountains’ Of Norway

Filmed and Edited by: HALFDAN HALLSETH (Fjord Productions)

It’s hard to describe a feeling. This is how the mountains of Norway feel. To me.

The geography of Norway is dominated by vast mountain ranges broken up by valleys and fjords. Less than 10% of the country’s area is arable, and the rest is mountainous. Glaciers are the major cause for erosion, so the terrain in the Norwegian mountains consists of plateaus and lakes with peaks. These areas have an abundant and diverse fauna and flora.

The altitude of the treeline comes slowly down going to higher latitudes; in northern Finnmark, the treeline reaches sea level. The treeline is also lower near the coast, and higher on the eastern slopes of the mountains.

Mountain ranges also form the main boundaries among Norway’s districts. They typically run north-south. Several of the ranges have had road and railroad passes since historical times; some are newer; and many close over the winter.

Travel Videos: “Step Bridge At Vøringsfossen” Over Norway’s Best Waterfall

The step bridge at Vøringsfossen goes across the river Bjoreio, connecting the viewpoints and paths at Fossatromma and Fossli. The bridge has 99 steps and a span of 47 metres. The height difference between the two sides of the gorge is 16 metres. The step bridge consists of two tripods founded on rock that carry the centre span.

The structure is made up of seven parts, of which five make up the flight of steps and the final two serve as supports. The seven bridge components have been hoisted in place by a crane and assembled on site. The entire step bridge is built in steel and secured with long rock bolts drilled into the rock. The bridge is located only a few tens of metres south of where the waterfall cascades into Måbødalen, and with a height of 50 metres above the rapids, the bridge is also a dizzying viewpoint.
