  •  /  km From You

Self-guided mountain hike from Mt Ulriken to Mt Fløyen. Incl. bus, Ulriken cable car, Fløibanen funicular, packed lunch at Mt Ulriken, soup at Mt Fløyen and a mobile app.

Self-guided day trip. The city mountain hike ‘Vidden’ from Mt Ulriken to Mt Fløyen offers exciting cultural history as well as beautiful and wild highland nature and scenic views of the city, fjord and mountains. Vidden is the highest of Bergen’s seven mountains and offers the best views of the area.

After taking the bus from the city centre, you take the Ulriken cable car up to Mt Ulriken (643 metres). At the top, you can enjoy the view of the city before you start the hike across Vidden. The hike to Mt Fløyen (320 metres) takes around 4-6 hours. From there, you take the Fløibanen funicular down to the city centre.

It is also a good hike to do at night, when you can walk as daylight breaks. It is also possible to do it outside the season (e.g. March, April or October), if the weather allows. Contact us by email if this is of interest.

Route information
The terrain is easy, but uneven, and can also be a bit muddy. All hiking will be on a mountain path and not on a mountain road. The weather can change rapidly, and the climate on the mountain is different from the city. The route is 13 km long and takes approx. 4-6 hours, depending on your pace. This is a self-guided hike, which means that you will be provided with an app, which guides you in the right direction and gives you information about the places you visit along the trail.
The hike is around 13 km and takes approx. 4-6 hours.
