The city mountain hike “Vidden” from Mt. Ulriken to Mt. Fløyen will give you an exciting cultural history as well as beautiful and wild highland nature and scenic views. Vidden is the highest level of Bergen’s 7 city mountains and offers cultural history and the best view of the area.
After taking the bus from the city center, you take Ulriken cable car up to Mt. Ulriken (643 MASL). At the top, you can enjoy the view over the city before you start the hike over Vidden. We have estimated the hike to be around 4-6 hours, and end up at Mt. Fløien (320 MASL). From here, you take the Fløien funicular down to the city center.
The hike is also nice to do during the night, where you can walk in the beautiful sunrise. It is also possible to do it outside the season (e.g. March, April or October), if the weather allows it. Contact us via e-mail if this is interesting for you.
