The weather we have had today has been absolutely fantastic. Unseasonably warm, the temperatures today on the balcony of our house reached 24C. With this type of t-shirt weather in March it was definitely a good day for a hike. We chose to go to a place called Viggohytten which sits atop the hill known as Gravdalsfjellet around a mile or so from the house.
The trail starts behind Betanien Hospital and we were soon climbing up through forested pathways beside small mountain streams under cloudless blue skies. Part way up we came to Laksevåghytten where we had a brief rest before continuing up to Viggohytten at the summit around 350m (1150ft) above sea level where we enjoyed some fantastic views and purchased a waffle from the volunteers who man the bothy before heading back down.
