A giant sunmirror is installed on the mountainside in Rjukan. Rjukan is a valley with high mountains, which result in no sun during the winter. Dus a mirror is installed. It reflects the sunraiz and sends it into the market square in Rjukan. The sun...more
As we drove through Rjukan, our guide told us about the Sun Mirror high above us on the mountain top. We eventually saw what he was talking about and the town's main square, where the sun's re-directed light is beamed to from the mirror (which...More
What an experience! When we first read about the Sun Mirror, our immediate reaction was to try and make time find this. And so we set about our journey to Tememark and the town of Rjukan.

We were driving through Rjukan and had planned to visit the town square to see the small area of sunlight reflected by the mirrors. We were worried it may be hard to find but immediately spotted it whilst driving past, even that first glimpse was...More
