The best hike in Bergen

Experience the power of the highlands and our stunning scenery. There are several routes at the top for both short and long trips, suitable for all ages and conditions. You will find free maps and information about the hiking area in the mountains.

Up Ulriken

Ulriken is the highest mountain in Bergen. The easiest way to get to the top is by the Ulriken cable car, but it is also possible for the whole family to come up on foot. Begin the hike from Ulriken cable car station or Montana.


The terrain continues to rise further behind the Ulrikstoppen. To get to the highest point, you have to continue a long way, actually all the way to the edge of the Vidden, facing south of Arnadalen. There is Hauggjelsvarden which with its 674 meters is the highest point of the city mountains.


Turnerhytten is a open to public cabin located 3.1 km from Ulriken towards the "vidden" plateau. This is a nice trip for the active family and hikers.

The cabin is open every Saturday and Sunday between 11:00 and 16:00 in the summer, and closes at 15.00 in the winter. The exceptional voluntary staff serve pancakes, snacks and hot beverages.


Crossing the Vidden plateau between Mount Ulriken and Mount Fløyen is the classic long hike in Bergen!
Whether you are starting from Fløyen or Ulriken, the hike is a journey through varied nature with incredible views and exciting sights along the route. We recommend stopping at the Human Rights Cairn at Storefjellet, or taking the lunch stop at Borgaskaret. Get a free map of the hike at Ulriken's upper station, where we have marked all the exciting stops for you.


The hike starts at the ulriken lower station and are well marked all the way up with signs. The main part consists of great stone-built stairs built by Sherpas from Nepal. There are integrated pause benches and viewpoints along the way to the top. Brig suitable clothing, and be prepared for a challenge!
