Mount Rundemanen

I’m slowly conquering Bergen’s seven mountains. My latest addition is Rundemanen.

Rundemanen – The-Much-Easier-Second-Tallest-Mountain

At 568 metres (1,864 ft) in height, it is the second highest of Bergen’s seven mountains. However, it is a much, much easier hike than Ulriken. Most of the way is paved and the whole trip takes about three to four hours, depending on how many photos you take.

And how long you enjoy the view at the top ❤

Rundemanen is easily accessible. There are several routes to the top, but the most common is to first conquer Fløyen (the easiest mountain) and move from there to Rundemanen. The start to Fløyen is located in the city center.

The path is beautiful, and it only takes about 30-45 minutes to reach the top.


At the top of Fløyen you might want to have your first break and enjoy parts of your lunch. Yes, bring lunch. There is a café, but everything is overpriced. Shop some cookies and fruit in a grocery store before you start hiking. Chances are you will find the grocery store pretty expensive too, but one cannot hike on an empty stomach. If you’re in Norway, you’re in Norway!

If you feel like stopping at Fløyen, remember why you started.

Rundemanen is worth it!

      1. I hear you! I struggle for the first hour then I get a burst of energy that doesn’t leave me for hours. Hiking is such a great way to be alone with your thoughts yet spend quality time with others, I must arrange to go more often
