The first warm light of day illuminates the shear granite cliffs of Sam Ford Fjord which at places rise 1,500m (4,900 ft) above sea level. The natural quality of this elevation makes this a favourite destination for climbers, and even B.A.S.E. jumpers who plummet from the cliff summit with body wings like flying squirrels.
