Shaped over thousands of years by the crashing waves, Kannesteinen Rock is a magnificent mushroom shaped rock formation located in the rural village of Oppedal, Norway, approximately 10 km west of the center of Måløy. While difficult to measure the exact size by looking at the photographs, the rock is about three feet high and wide enough for three or four people to stand on.
