Not much to do, perhaps because we arrived around Halloween.

We had some problems with taxi drivers... The lift was closed because of strong wind, and the taxi drivers tried to get an exagerated fee for driving us up to the cliff (30 euros/person in a minibus with 8 persons.

When I commented the price, one of them, a young man, said "Do you know what we call people like you? Assholes!"

To that my wife answered "I am sure that your mother would be very proud of you if she could hear you now." This resulted in another, older driver trying to be physically aggressive to her. The thing is that my wife is a National judo champion in Norway as well as in Sweden, and when she showed no fear, he stepped back.

Anyhow, we went to the top by foot. Tha drivers said it would take 3 hours up, but it didnĀ“t: 1 hour and 15 minutes up.
