Evening hike to Fløya
On Tuesday the clouds were hanging low, but in the evening it cleared up a bit. I decided to walk up Fløya – I can see the big metal weather vane from my living room 🙂 The weather vane is called Værfløya in Norwegian, I had to idea that’s where the name comes from! I’d been there before, but never walked all the way from the bottom. There is a cable car taking you more than halfway, which is usually way too tempting for me 😉 But this time I walked from the bottom cable car station to the top (640 m) – and to my surprise it only took 1 hour and 40 minutes! It was a nice walk with great views, and I could see our house the entire time 😀
Just before sunset, the sun briefly came out 🙂 of course I had to take another panorama photo of Tromsø island.
On the way back, I stopped at Steinbøhytte, which was completely covered in snow last time we visited. Back then, we were able to peer through the window above the door after a lot of digging – hard to imagine that now 🙂
I have a free entry card for the cable car (thanks to Tromsø photo club), and I allowed myself the luxury of coming down by cable car. There was nobody there, and the cable car came up and down just for me – wow. I almost felt guilty having the free entry card! Here is the map and profile of this short hike.
