With glorious sunshine, warm temperatures well up into twenties centigrade and Mrs Mjollnir and I both having the day off yesterday what better way to spend the day than hiking over the mountains surrounding the city? We set off in the late morning and took the cable-car up to summit of Ulriken, the highest of the peaks surrounding Bergen at 643m (2,110 ft), and were treated to some fantastic views right from the start of our trip.
Our route took us from Ulriken’s peak to the Vidden ridge running along behind Svartediket reservoir, far to the right out of the picture above, before ascending to the summit of Rundemannen which is marked by the tower in the photo above. The final leg led from Rundemannen to the more familiar sights of Mount Fløyen.
Coming along to the end of the Vidden ridge we made our way down a fairly arduous slope towards a small valley before going round the side of a small peak and making our way up to the summit of Rundemannen.
