The Bjoernafjord

Ikke blandt de mest kjente ‘turist-fjordene’ i Norge, men ikke desto mindre en ganske stor og ganske dyp fjord som skjærer seg inn i landet et stykke syd for Bergen! Her fotografert av en av mine kolleger fra Vestlandets hovedstad: The City of Bergen.
Bjørnafjorden kan være ca 2,5 km tvers over, men ca 25 -30 km lang. På det dypeste er fjorden omtrent 600 meter dyp!

Not among the more renowned ‘Tourist fjords’ in Norway, but nevertheless a rather large fjord cutting into the country a little to the South of Bergen.
Here shot by one of my good colleagues on the West coast representing the City of Bergen.
The Bjoernafjord measure approximately 2 miles across, but has a length of approximately
15-16 miles. The maximum depth a little less of 2000 feet!

      The American Embassy used to be located at the ‘Drammensveien’, but not any more!
      They’ve built a brand new embassy in an area called Huseby 5-6 miles North of the city.

  1. So … Why is it called the Furry Bear Fjord?

      Really, I haven’t the faintest idea. My only experience with this fjord was from the navy when we testdived an old german model sub and nearly didn’t make it back to the surface.
      It’s a rather deep fjord, but certainly there’s noe bears around this area!
