Floyen and beyond.

We went to bed with the weather changing. Low cloud, quite windy and a drop in temperature. Our thoughts that we would awaken to a dull day were quickly dismissed as we opened the blackout curtains. It was a lovely cloudless day.
Our plan was to go up to Floyen on the funicular, walk around some of the tracks and then walk back down to town. 
It all went well, we had a great time and we got to the top before the hoards of cruise ship tourists. 
Most of the tracks are easy to follow and short distances. 
We slipped up by not taking any maps so the longer trails were out of bounds to us. Mainly this was due to the tops being tree covered, limiting visibility and the fact that paths were everywhere. 
It was no hardship to keep retracing our start point and we enjoyed the coffee too at £2.60.
The route down from Floyen is easy. There’s much to view also and quite a bit of wildlife if you find a quiet spot to sit off trail. 
Back in town we had to find a shoe shop due to Sheila’s sandals coming apart. 
I worked a rough distance out at around 12km. 
Sorry there are no images. For some reason Google is playing up. A bit like Visa.

Thanks Martin. It is helping. We couldn’t have come to a more chilled out country. Very enjoyable.
