Bergen #8: Ulriken to Blåmanen over Vidden

While Tromsø was 'enjoying' fresh snow falls and an official snow depth reading of 9 cm, Bergen still had summer weather, albeit a little cooler than the last week. Perfect weather for a relaxed walk on my day off. This time I chose one of Bergen's most popular walks over the Vidden, the mountain plateau east of Bergen. A nice walk with excellent views both towards Bergen and the coast and towards the higher snow covered mountains further east. 


Top of Ulriken, end station of the cablecar.

Higher snow covered mountains in the distance.

Easy track over the Vidden marked by large cairns.

Remains of an old ski jump, Bergensbakken, built in 1930

Ruins of a German anti aircraft gun range on Blåmanen.

One of many old tracks in these mountains.

Fjellhytten, one of many huts in the Bergen city mountains.
