What you'll do
Experience pristine nature and fresh air by joining Borghild on the all time classic hike from Ulriken to Fløyen and then down to the city. She will make sure you have a great adventure and lots of fun. This hike is called, walking over 'Vidden'. You get a feeling of being far up in the mountain in the middle of the city. The terrain is varied and rocky over the platou. Easy to walk. Some up and down but mostly flat. The ascend to Ulriken (Bergen's highest point at 643 m), is steep. Usually people prefer to take the cable car to the top. It is also possible to hike the Sherpa stairs (approx. 1100) or take one of the many trails. If you prefer a shorter hike there are many options in this area. From Ulriken, across Vidden, it takes about 5 to 7 hrs to hike. Guests typically opt for the cable car to the top of Ulriken unless you are a seasoned hiker. At the top we enjoy the amazing view over Bergen and start our hike across the platou. There is plenty of time to rest, and enjoy the majestic landscape with panoramic views in all directions. The descent to Fløyen is an easy flat surface, downhill on a gravel path. We go down to Fløyen - Bergen's second beautiful view point and great photoshoots over the city. From Fløyen there is about a 45 minutes descent to the beautiful city harbour. Now we have truly deserved our favourite drinks and a meal – feeling great!
