Rundebranden is the third largest bird mountain in Norway, with a teeming bird life as well as a large variety of plant arts. The trip from Goksoyr at Runde to the peak is slack and steady on well marked paths. Besides the attractions offered by nature, such as bird life, mountain and cliff formations and grassy hills, you can experience tracks of a beautiful cultural landscape formed by agriculture and settlements throughout thousands of years. From the peak, you can enjoy the view of the ocean, the islands and the mountains from Stadt to Eide at Nordmore. There are paths from the north and the south, and the hike leads you through partly boggy terrain to the mountain plateau. Season: All year Length and height: 2 kms. 300 m high. Difficulty: Simple Time: 1 hour Map: 1119-IV Fosnavag Access: Bus or car to Goksoyr at Runde. Take the main road 61 towards Fosnavag and turn direction Runde (marked by sign). Accommodation near by: Goksoyr Camping, Runde Miljosenter or Runde Fyr (lighthouse) - DNT.
