I am happy to present the first Norwegian island in the project!
Oma island (Omaholmen), also called Island of Calm, is a mysterious tiny place in the Hardangerfjord. Mysterious, because even though there is plenty of pictures showing its beauty, I did not manage to find any further information about it. But that may be a good sign, it seems to be a truly calm place, not spoiled by curious tourists.
The fjord itself is 179km long (it is the third longest fjord in the world). You can see its location on the map in the back of the card. The main part of the fjord is 2-10km wide, and the deepest part measures 852m.
Thank you Ann Britt for this beautiful card!
