Fløyen is one of the most popular tourist sights in Bergen. It’s one of the mountain peaks that surrounds the town, and is home to a couple buildings that house a restaurant, snack shop, giftshop, etc. Some people take the Fløibanen funicular up the mountain, which is probably an attraction unto itself. But we’re cheap, and arguably need exercise, so we decided to hike up to the top.
The start of the hike to the top.
Snow is still visible on the tops of the mountains that surround Bergen. Even though it’s May, spring is just now finally gaining speed.
Moss is everywhere, a testament to the abundant rainfall that Bergen receives. Luck was on our side though, since it ended up being sunny all day.
Hikers rest and enjoy the view en route to the top.

A really cool handrail at the top of Fløyen. Not sure what the song is.
