Traelnes; view to
Torghatten - This hill is renowned for its distinctive hole piercing straight through the hillside. You really get the sense of man’s inferiority to nature when you walk through the 160 metre long, 35 metre high and 15-20 metre wide hole, created thousands of years ago by the sea’s erosion.


This is the view from a postcard - from the “Ocean side”, as seen from ships.  We actually saw the mountain from the other side – the “hole” was only a shadow for us …above, right…
