This is the only way to land there - fly 500ft beside the mountains for fly in the fjord and you need to take a sharp U-Turn just befor you lineup the runway for Landing in the opposite side of mountains. This is done there many times a week and don't forget there is no IFR Equipment, there are done visual only.

The 230 degree turn to the runway is necessary because of the high mountains encircling the airport. This approach is dreaded by passengers in bad weather because you are so close to the mountains in a 35-40 degree bank. This airport has high limits conscerning cloud level and winds. Once you are in the fjord, go around is not an option!
