7-fjellsturen 2010

For the third time, I took the so-called “7-fjellsturen”, the hike of the seven mountains of Bergen in one day. I am proud to say that I made in 10 hours and 40 minutes, 2 hours and 28 minutes less than my previous result.

The hike was too long even for Sports Tracker, which crashed after 8 hours. This means that I only have incomplete and maybe corrupted data of my hike. 🙁 The developers of this app will for sure hear from me… 🙂

Special thanks to Synnøve, who shared with me all the editions. Without her, I would have never managed this result. 😉

Update 6 June

It looks like the Sports Tracker data of my hike is not corrupted. It is only incomplete since I started the tracking again half-hour after Sports Tracker crashed. 🙂

7-fjellsturen 2009

Yes, I did it again. The seven mountains of Bergen in one day, 13 hours and 8 minutes to be precise. Despite the rain, I spent 36 minutes less than my first time.

7-fjellsturen

There is a town in the world where once every year almost 6000 people are waking up with only one desire: hike seven mountains before the day is over. The name of this town? Bergen.

I was one of those crazy people who managed to finish the so-called “7-fjellsturen“. My equipment was just a backpack with beverages and food, a rain jacket, and a camera. But what I needed the most was a lot of motivation and adrenaline.

I started at 9:00 and finished at 23:00, walking for about 35 km and going up for about 2400 m in total.

I am exhausted, stiff, and aching, but it was worth doing it. The weather was perfect, with clear sky and mild temperature. I have never enjoyed the nature that much, and at the end of the day, I felt part of it. Now I am left with a diploma, an exclusive t-shirt, and a lot of good memories…

I want to thank Synnøve, for being the best company I could desire for this trip, and Francesca, for giving me a chocolate bar when I needed sugars the most.
