After last nights post there was a lovely sunset.
The sun sets at almost 11pm, and rises again at 4am. It never gets past civil twilight, so it is never truly dark.
It’s really odd to be going to bed when it is still light!
On to today. The weather forecast was predicting rain, but in actual fact it has been really hot. I’ve caught the sun on my chest and one arm v_v Who comes to Norway to get a tan?
We set off just after 10am. As we don’t have a car we had to walk to the hike. This took us an hour.
We got to the start of the hike, where it is covered by trees and the ground a mix of mud, roots and rocks. The start of the hike is quite steep and the ground is uneven.
After about 10 minutes we came to a viewing point, so we had a bit of a rest and a drink (After all we had been walking for an hour before this!)
Once you get out of the trees, it’s a bit flatter and easier to walk on. There is also the added bonus of no roots. As much as I love the look of an exposed root, they’re not the greatest to walk on.
Towards the top it gets steeper again, but it’s just rocks. The views at the top are spectacular, and as it was a nice, sunny day we could see for miles.
At the top it was really hot. We sat down for a bit and ate some dinner before walking back down. The walk down seemed a lot easier, but we both really needed a drink, and as it was Sunday the supermarkets were closed. Luckily a little cafe had opened at 1, so we popped in there and got a slush puppy and a diet coke/iced tea (And a bit of a sit down) before walking the rest of the way back to the hotel.
A lovely day, which was nothing like the weather forecast predicted!
