During WW-II (early April 1940) Royal Navy and the German fleet (Kriegsmarine) unaware of each other were heading for Narvik,in the bottom of Vestfjord,to secure the iron delivered by Swedish iron mines. After a severe storm on the North Atlantic both fleets arrived in Vestfjord in fog and the first real battle between the British and the Germans took place here.
I crossed the Vestfjord in beautiful weather with flat seas and made landfall in Kirkefiord,now a favourite in these waters.
