Kfjorden (Alta)

Kfjorden (Northern Sami: Njoammelgohppi) is a fjord


in Alta Municipality in Finnmark county, Norway. The
7-kilometre (4.3 mi) long fjord branches o the main
Altafjorden. The village of Kfjord and Kfjord Church
both lie along the northern coast of the fjord. The
European route E06 highway follows the northern shoreline of the fjord. A new bridge over the Kfjorden to
shorten the highway E6 route around the fjord is under
construction and is expected to be completed by in late
2013.[1][2]
The fjord was the anchorage of the German battleship
Tirpitz for much of World War II, and was attacked
by British midget submarines during Operation Source
in 1943 and by aircraft during Operation Tungsten,
Operation Mascot, Operation Goodwood and Operation
Paravane in 1944.
