Tresfjord

På vår vei fra Ålesund mot Åndalsnes måtte vi kjøre rundt en liten sidefjord i Romsdalsfjorden som heter Tresfjord. Selve fjorden er ikke imponerende stor. Jeg vil anslå at vi kunne ha kjørt rundt på under en time. Ja, hvis det ikke hadde vært for alle stedene vi stoppet. For her var det idyllisk for å si det forsiktig –

Enroute from Ålesund  towards Åndalsnes I had to make a small detour around a small arm of the ‘Romsdalsfjord’named ‘Tresfjord’! The fjord itself isn’t all that impressive when it comes to size. I estimate it would take me less than an hour to drive around it. That is – if I don’t take into consideration the time used for photography and other stops underway.
Because this was a rather idyllic trip, – to express it mildly.

A glance into ‘Tresford’ towards ‘Vestnesfjella’ with the mountains ‘Kvitnykja’ (3730 ft), ‘Lauparen (4302 ft) and ‘Nonsfjellet’ (3600 ft)

Virkelig et vakkert landskap

A picturesque landscape indeed –
Picture 1386Hvis vi kaster et blikk tvers over fjorden kan vi se Trolltidene (1170 m)

Throwing a glace across the ‘Tresfjord’, we may see the mountain ridge ‘Trolltindene’, which stands 3510 ft.

Picture 1424Litt lenger inne i fjordbunnen  fant vi et lite folkemuseum hvor man tok vare på eldre bygninger fra distriktet. Denne bygningen er fra 1700!

A bit further into this landscape – at the bottom of Tresfjord – we found a small private museum trying to preserve old buildings from this particular area. This cottage is from 1700.
Picture 1405bHer er et kværnhus bygget i 1800. Det er svært få slike hus bevart for ettertiden. de daterer seg ofte tilbake til 1100-tallet og ble brukt til å male korn til mel.

Here a ‘mill house’ from 1800. There are very few such mill houses preserved. They date back to approximately the 1100 and was used to convert grain into flour.

Picture 1409bLegg merke til de massive trappene bygget av store steinblokker. De fremkom ofte som et resultat av å bygge hus i sterkt hellende terreng.

Observe the massive steps built by piling big blocks of stone. This again was a result of building their houses in a steep countryside.

Picture 1398bTresfjord kirke lå også i bunnen av Tresfjorden. En litt spesiell kirke var det også. Kirken er bygget i tømmer og faktisk 8-kantet. Den ble påbegynt i 1825 og i 1828 sto den ferdig med sine 240 plasser. Kirken ble også besøkt av det norske kongeparet i 2003.

The Tresfjord church is also situated in the very end of the Tresfjord, and it is a rather special little church. The church is built in solid timber, has 8 sides and seats 240 people.
The church was founded in 1825 and was finished in 1828. The Norwegian King and Queen visited this church in 2003.

Leaving the beautiful Tresfjord, we cast one last glance on the towering peaks above the village –

Here a ‘shot’ towards the mouth of the ‘Tresfjord’ –

Og et par bilder som illustrerer hvordan østsiden av fjorden ser ut

And a couple of pictures that illustrates what the eastern side of Tresfjord looks like –

That was a two hour presentation of Tresfjord 🙂

    Great photos!
    I especially like the 5th one down from the top.

      The little ‘mill’? If you study it closely, you’ll se and opening underneath (to your left) where
      the water used to run. The buildings you see were not built originally where they stand today, but otherwise they are exactly the same.

      • RoSy says:

        Yes – the little mill.
        Nice that the building still exist & have been preserved even if not on their original spots.

        • Seenorway says:

          If you find this interesting, RoSy, I do have a photo report from a folks museum in Valdres including something like 40-50 pictures, but because its photographed in 4:3 I need to re-photograph quite a fev motives, thus not published as of yet.

  6. Someday i’m gonna go to this place. *dream on* Hahahahahh!

      Well, with cheaper and cheaper air fares, the world is virtually shrinking. And if you really want to see the world, why don’t you start planning. Did you know that flying Singapore – London tour/retour, you may se most of Europe, Africa and Middle East for no extra charge? ‘Planning’ is the name of the game!
