A new semester has now started and we in BSI Friluft hope you are ready to come with us on some of our hikes! BSI Friluft is a student organization operated by volunteers and is aimed at everyone who loves nature as much as us. Each semester we arrange a wide selection of hikes in which everyone should be able to find something to their interest.
9 stk var klare for tur til hytta Grindaflet. Vi startet fra Ljosanbotn (19 km) i strålende sol og t-skjorte vær. Sekkene var tunge, da vi hadde med appelsin, kvikklunsj og mange hadde bakt noe de ønsket å dele med andre. Stemningen var bra og vi var så heldige å ha et spor nesten hele veien frem. Siste timen måtte vi tråkke spor selv. Vi brukte 6.5 t frem til hytta. Vel fremme gravde vi oss inn i hytta og på toalettet, fyret opp ovn og det ble lapskaus til alle. Mer kake, kjeks og digg kom frem på bordet. Topp!:D
Dagen etterpå stod vi opp kl.07 og var klare til å gå kl. 08.43. Turen gikk tilbake samme vei. Det var nydelig løssnø og bra føre. Sola skinte og vi hadde god glid. Vi fikk satt noen fine svinger i nedoverbakkene. Det blåste opp i halv tolv tida, og det ble raskt kjøligere. Vi kom oss raskt fremover og tok en god lunsj før vi rant ned i dalen. Her ble det en del knall og fall, men godt humør. Vi var nede 14.00. Alle var fornøyde med turen og alle var enige om at de aldri hadde vært på en tur med så mye kake;)
Det var en spent gjeng som møtte opp på togstasjonen i Bergen siste helgen i Januar. Yr meldte nemlig om sterk kuling og rufsete forhold til fjells. Været kunne vi ikke gjøre noe med, så for å sikre en vellykket helg ble det kjøpt inn kilovis med sjokolade, pølser, kjøtt, beiken, chillinøtter, potetgull, brownies, smågodt og i tillegg litervis med øl, vin og solo. Toget forlot perrongen og bak oss la vi byens behagelige bekvemmeligheter og satte kursen mot fjellets brutale enkelhet.
Når toget slynget seg opp Raundalen var himmelen blå og det var fortsatt et par timer igjen med sol. Turen opp til Kaldevasshytta ble derfor alt annet enn vi hadde forespeilet oss. Vi skled opp i solnedgangen, skyggene ble lengere og lengere og da de forsvant var vi fremme ved hytta. Vel fremme kunne vi fortære en fortreffelig pølsemiddag. Lørdagen var også fin, men lyset var flatt og snøen hard, så vi besluttet å legge turen over noen vann i stedet for å prøve å komme oss opp på en topp. Tilbake fra tur var det tid for middag. På menyen var det koteletter servert på en seng av beiken. Alle ble mette.
Søndagen våknet vi til kraftig vind, dårlig sikt og en behagelig duft av omtrent femhundreogtjueto nystekte pannekaker. Fulle av flesk og pannekaker suste vi ufrivillig fort ned tilbake til Upsete. På toget ble det servert brownies og en restefest av alt annet som var igjen.
Takk for alt!
We left Bergen early Saturday morning to catch the sun in Fresvikjordalen. The valley had already warmed up for our arrival. After a nice lunch in the sun, we started hiking towards Handadalseggi. Approximately at Fresvikvarden, we were lucky to find the first snow of the season, pure white and so fresh. The snow, however, made hiking conditions severe as there was no real layers in the snowpack. After some "thumble and fumble" in snow, we finally made it almost to the top of Handadalseggi. We turned around before we reached the camp to allow enough time to establish camp in the daylight. We had a delicious dinner (Chili Con Carne à la Emilie) and a dessert. With full stomachs, we were ready to jump in the sleeping bags. Priceless!
The following day we started early to get to Fresvikbreen, around a 2,5-hours hike from Leitet for a big group. At Fresvikvarden we continued to Langafonnsvatnet, and then headed W-NW towards the glacier. As expected, the glacier was snow covered after the last snowfall, but we managed to find and cross some crevasses ascending the glacier face. We made it all the way to top, and enjoyed a 360-degrees view of Sunnfjord, Sogn, Voss and the rest of Hordaland. Extrordinary weather facilitated a great experience. Hiking back to Leitet, we were all proud to have achieved our goal and motivated for future trips. Some of us gave a last pray to Fresvikvarden before heading back home.
On Friday we took of towards Jotunheimen, the area with Norway's highest mountains! We parked the cars at Tyinholmen and hiked for a while until we found nice places to camp. On Saturday morning we started early towards Uranostind, a mountain often referred to as the most beautiful in Jotunheimen. We roped up for the ridge traverse, which was partly exposed and very nice, and did some easy climbing. The fog was sometimes quite thick but when we got closer to the top, the weather turned nice. We made our way back over the Uranos glacier.
On Sunday some of use climbed up Falketinden, which was a terrific tour as well!
On Saturday we took the bus from Bergen to Fyre, where we began our approximately 15km hike to Grindaflethytta. The beginning of the hike was uphill, then the trail became more flat about halfway. Along the way, we stopped at a nice spot next to a river for lunch. Once we reached the cabin, we relaxed before cooking dinner. The cabin was very cozy. We cooked a big dinner of pasta with meatballs. We ate and played card games in candlelight before going to bed. In the morning we ate breakfast, packed our things, and began the second portion of our hike. The hike from the cabin to Raundalen was mostly downhill and approximately 19km long. We stopped at a nice waterfall for lunch. From Raundalen, we took the train back to Bergen.
BSI-friluft is going to have a ‘free -for-all’ climbing day, no membership required!
When: Thursday the 15th of September 17:00-20:00
The purpose of this event is to give everyone the opportunity to try outdoor climbing.

On a Saturday we started off from Bergen by train to Haugastøl. The famous Rallar road goes from Haugastøl to Flåm and we should cycle it. The plan was to cycle from Haugastøl to Finse on Saturday and down to Flåm on Sunday. We were 4, 2 exchange students from Germany and 2 Norwegians. The weather was nice and we stopped for waffles both days. When we came to Finse, there was only one menu at Finsehytta and it was buffet with Norwegian cuisine. Perfect! We also went to the Rallar museum. On Sunday we had really good weather with sun and warm temperature when we got closer to Flåm. Look at the pitures! Everyone was happy!
