Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Vidden Trail between Mt. Floyen and Mt. Ulriken, Mt. Ulriken, Bergen Norway

Join us on this legendary walk across the ‘Vidden’ plateau. A guide from Norway Mountain Guides will join you on the hike.

We do the walk that is loved by all local mountain enthusiasts. The walk is from Mt Ulriken to Mt Fløyen. Starting from Mt Ulriken makes for an easier walk, and you get great views of Bergen and the Byfjord. Mt Ulriken is the highest mountain in Bergen at 643 metres, and our destination is Mt Fløyen, which is 300 metres.

The guide takes you safely over the mountains, and brings a comprehensive first-aid kit. On the way, you will learn about Bergen and Norway, and, not least, about Norwegian outdoor pursuits. If children come along on the walk, we will tell them stories about the trolls who live in the mountains.

Practical information:

Time: Approx. 4-6 hours with breaks

Level: Medium/ experienced, blue category

Km: 13 (if you take the cable car up/funicular down)

Terrain: Relatively easy to walk

Elevation: 643 metres – 300 metres.

Starts at: Mt Ulriken, 605 metres. Ends at Mt Fløyen, 300 metres

This walk can be done all year, but don’t forget that the weather changes quickly. Proper clothes and shoes are important. The walk takes you up to an elevation hundreds of metres above the city centre, where it is normally quite a lot colder than in the centre. We don’t follow a road, but a trail the whole way. The terrain is undulating, but it is not heavy-going. There are some steep sections, but no exposed parts. The path can be wet and muddy. When we arrive at our destination, Mt Fløyen, you can walk or take the Fløibanen funicular back down to the city centre.

13 kilometres is a good distance, so you need to be in OK shape to do the walk. If you’re in doubt, get in touch with us.

This walk is a must to be able to call yourself a ‘Bergenser’ or Bergen patriot. We guarantee you a lovely and safe walk in good company and, not least, high spirits!

Rendezvous point: At the top of Mt Ulriken (by the upper station) outside the shop at 10.00 sharp. Look for a guide from Norway Mountain Guides.
