Løvstakken together with Damsgårdsfjellet and Lyderhorn constitute the three western City Mountains, of which Løvstakken is the highest. On clear days it is possible to see oil installations in the North Sea to the west and Folgefonnen glacier and Rosendalsalpene in Hardanger to the east.
In the picture above, the stone cairn marks the summit and offers a very good view of Bergen and the surrounding fjords and mountains.

All hashers will have crash space somewhere at the venue from Friday to Sunday. For the 2019 Weekend, there will be a committee in charge of bed-allocations on a first-register-first-serve basis for visiting hashers. Any free beds after the registration has closed will be allocated local hashers on a first-register-first-serve basis. All beds have mattresses but no duvets or pillows. You will need to bring a sleeping bag and it is also worth considering bringing your own bed linen to cover the mattress. Please note that there is no bedding rental service at the venue. You will need to bring a towel if you plan to shower or go for a swim in the ocean/fjord during the Weekend.
Local hashers and any hang-around will camp on the lawn next to the cabin if there are not enough beds to go around. Click on the picture (right) for an overview of where tents can be pitched.
Traveling by car
The roads leading to the venue are narrow and winding and in most places not wide enough for two cars to pass. If you drive from the City Centre, this LINK shows the approx. 4.9 kilometre route from LAGUNEN, a shopping centre just over halfway between the City Centre and the Airport. This LINK shows the approx. 4.9 kilometre route if you are heading to the venue from the general area around the Airport.
The lane leading to the venue is easily missed, as can be seen HERE leading right if you drive from Lagunen and HERE leading left if you drive in the opposite direction.
Please note that a barrier blocks the lane leading to the venue and cannot be opened until we receive the key to the venue, usually on (pub-crawl) Friday.
Traveling by boat
If you travel by express boat from different parts of the West Coast of Norway to Bergen, you will arrive close to the City Centre at Strandkaiterminalen, which is also approximately 725 metres from the kick-off meeting point.

Traveling by plane
As a rule, we advise visitors arriving on Friday to head for the City Centre rather than heading for the venue. Although the venue is only approximately 6 kilometres from the airport:
- There are no direct bus links from the Airport to the venue
- There will probably not be anyone at the venue when you arrive
- You must find the local bus stop which is approximately 1.2 kilometres from the venue to catch a bus to the City Centre
Public transport from airport
The journey between the Airport and the City Centre takes approx. 44 minutes by tram and trams run between 5:45 a.m. and 1 a.m. Check the timetable (in Norwegian) HERE for more details.
There is a local bus service to/from the Airport but this is not recommended because it (probably) takes longer than the tram and you must change buses at least once, and all for the same price as taking the tram.
In addition to single tickets, the bus/tram operator also offers 7-day season tickets, 30-day season tickets, 180-day season tickets and 24-hour tickets. Click HERE for information about tickets and prices.
Purchased on the bus:NOK 125NOK 175
Purchased before boarding:NOK 105NOK 155
Transport during the weekend
On Saturday, there will be transport from the venue to and from the Killer Hill run.
There is no organised transport on Sunday but we always try to get visitors either to the Airport or to the nearest tram station at Birkelandsskiftet. If you do need transport on Sunday, have a chat with the Grand Mattress Guinea Pig during the weekend. Usually, some local hashers have cars at the venue and can offer visitors a lift.
Weekend kick-off point
A local hasher knows the staff and on previous weekends has arranged storage of luggage in the pub cellar from 6 p.m. for Friday pub-crawl Hashers who head for the Pub loaded with luggage. Hopefully, the same will be possible this year.
After the Friday pub-crawl
The Friday evening registration at the venue is a relaxed and laid-back affair. We intend to have names on doors and a list at the information desk showing where everyone is billeted. Hash Cash usually sets up shop on Saturday to complete any outstanding transactions and our Haberdasher hands out the weekend goodies in time for the Saturday run.
All hashers will have crash space somewhere at the venue from Friday to Sunday, either in a bed or in a tent. Because there are fewer beds than participants, all BH3 hashers and visiting late-cummers will be in tents. A symbol (a bed or a tent) on the Who's Cummin list shows where you will be billeted at the venue.
The Saturday Killer Hill run
Hashers prepare their own packed lunch Saturday morning, and together with any water and change of clothes, carry it themselves on the run. We eat lunch at the second drink-stop, usually on the Killer Hill Mountain summit. As of late, the hares have distributed the drink-stop beer among hashers to carry on the run.
