Panorama picture from Norddal Municipality in Norway




TAFJORD

View from the road over Tafjord. The road leading to the Zakarias Dam. The striking contrasts between fjord and alpine peak, and between fertile fields and snow and ice, are characteristic of the Tafjordfjella mountains. The gateway to this mountain kingdom, Tafjord, lies in the furthest reaches of Norddal municipality. From here you can pick and choose from a variety of tour alternatives.

The tourism association has marked trails between the cabins in the area, where some are more difficult and others easier going. For those of you who prefer to use a tent and find your own paths, it is merely a matter of doing just that! The highest peaks are located almost 2000 metres above sea level: Puttegga (1999 m.a.s.l.), Karitinden (1982 m.a.s.l.), Torsnos (1975 m.a.s.l.).

The fjord, rivers and mountain lakes, everywhere you go in Norddal you'll find places to swim, but it is icy cold. At Tafjord is the only outdoor swimming pool in Sunnmøre. Open to the general public during the entire Summer. Muritunet in Valldal offers an indoor swimming pool.
