Steps - 14,500 or 9.25km
Finally Norway manages to produce a nice day without the liquid sunshine they say is typical of Norwegian weather. No shore excursions organised so we took the HOHO bus to see the sights. Great view from the lookout - this really is a pretty town, very colourful. Apparently the main city centre had to be rebuilt in the early 1900's after it was destroyed by fire which is why all the homes have a similar architecture. We walked down the 420 odd steps from the lookout to the town centre.
Later we visited an open air museum which was like a village from the 14th century. I reckon everyone must have been below 5 foot or else they constantly had bad headaches from hitting their heads, the ceiling heights were so low.
