Between the rocks

3573417779_d87aa31c21 10.000 years ago Norway and Northern Europe experienced what has been called the last ice-age. Whole countries were covered by ice and pushed deep into the ground by the sheer weight of it. Some places the ice was up to 3000 meters thick.

When the ice melted over Norway, an entirely new countryside of valleys, mountains and fjords was revealed. Unique to the world, this new born landscape kept on changing by steadily rising out of the water and cracking up from the expanding force of freezing water.

When the big boulders at Gloppedalen came crashing down on both sides of the valley is uncertain, but it did create a spectacular and fascinating landscape almost impossible to cross if it hadn’t been for the will of man and a tiny “lost” road. Perfect for a car commercial.
