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 located 3.1 km from Ulriken. This is a nice trip for a family with young children, hikers come from many places and the trails go in many directions outside the cottage.

The cabin is open for dining every Saturday and Sunday between 11:00 and 16:00 in the summer, and closes at 15.00 in the winter. We have voluntary cabin guards every weekend who sell pancakes, coffee and chocolate and maybe some other exciting things.


Vidden 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 Menneskerettighetsværden 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 trip starts at Montana and follows the main path up towards Ulriken a few hundred meters. After the first turn, Oppstemten appears. Great stone-built stairs built by Sherpas. Practical work of some stairs, with integrated pause benches and view places in several places.
