DAY 1 - Bergen

After 2 months I was back in Bergen. It was just short visit of my friend as previously. Again I was very lucky with the weather. Bergen is said to be one of the cities that has the most precipitation.

As you can see from pictures, we had perfect view during our flight.

DAY 2 - Veafjorden, Stanghelle, Bergen

As it was my second visit in Bergen, we wanted to see something outside of Bergen as well, so we took train to small town Stanghelle. Stanghelle has very nice viewpoints of Veafjorden, so we went on a short circle walk around Stanghelle.

The weather was amazing and views from small lighthouse were spectacular. It was perfect place for picnic.

When we came back to Bergen, we walked through city centre and ascended to Floyen - popular place in short distance from city centre with nice view of Bergen. We bought one-time grill and made grilled salmon outside.

DAY 3 - trek around Bergen mountains - from Floyen (399 metres) through Rundemanen (568 metres) to Ulriken (643 metres)

As weather was still perfect we were able to make our planned tour around Bergen mountains. We started on Floyen, then we went to mountain Rundemanen. The way to Rundemanen wasn't anything new to me, because we made this trip during my previous visit. We decided to make one of the longest treks you can make in Bergen mountains and walk the whole ridge from Rundemanen to Ulriken - the highest of Bergen's seven mountains.

There was still quite a lot of snow up there, so you need to be prepared for that, but thanks to clear sky, it was unforgettable all day trek.

DAY 4 - Bergen Aquarium

Our last day in Bergen was very short because of afternoon flight, so we just wandered through streets and shops and went to Bergen Aquarium with sea lions and penguins.
