Tysfjord (Tysfjorden)

Tysfjord (Tysfjorden) is a long fjord indenting the mainland of Norway so deeply it stretches inland almost to Sweden. This is an area devoid of roads where a few small villages cling along the shore.

Tysfjorden is one of the major fjord counties. It virtually splits the country into two, and the only ways to cross it are by boat, foot, or air. There is no road that crosses Tysfjorden. It is also home to some of the most stunning mountains, including Norway's national mountain.
