Length: 15.8 mi • Est. 9 h 3 m
Great hike and breath-taking views along the way. It can get crowded, but is worth the visit. Note: there are temporary seasonal closures in this area. Please consult the Trolltunga Trail Information website before visiting. 1 June–30 September: Guided hiking recommended. Experienced hikers can hike on their own. 1 October–31 May: Guided hiking only. Parking: Get to the parking lot (P2) just before 6 am (that's when its empty). It is 500 NOK to park here. P1 is quite far (down at Tyssedal, 40 km total hike) and the shuttle doesn’t start running til June. The higher option (P3) takes a big chunk out of the hike, but the road doesn’t open for cars until June.Show more

This long hike is challenging, yet so rewarding. At the summit you'll find "Skålatårnet," a tower sitting atop the peak. A great overview over the village of Loen, as well as the surrounding mountains, fjords, glaciers, and all around beautiful landscape.Show more

Length: 8 mi • Est. 3 h 14 m
A less popular route to Ulriken from Vidden, featuring the Stoltzekleiven stairs to the Sandvikspilen viewpoint (highly recommended). Take the Ulriksbanen cable car up from Bergen. From there it is a gentle path west towards Floyen, where the view is even better. Downside of walking this direction is that the best views disappear further into the hike until you get to Ulriken. The trail starts with comfortable and clear paths to the radio tower on Vidden, and then turns into more a walk on large rocks - have good shoes and strong feet! The trail is marked with a series of rockpiles on the mountain ridge. There are a couple of scrambles, which involve navigating dips in the mountain ridge, climbing down and then back up again two or three steep and high rock features.Show more

Length: 2.2 mi • Est. 53 m
Easy hike up to Ulriken, the highest of Bergen's seven mountains.The trail offers stunning views of Bergen in all directions. Ulriken cable car station at the top is also the trail head for dozens of hikes in the "vidda" mountain plateau. Though technically simple, the last kilometer of the walk has a steep 20% + grade. The trail includes two stairs built by Sherpa. The hike down can be slippery in the rain or snow. One option is to hike up the mountain, and take the cable car back down.Show more

Length: 3.5 mi • Est. 1 h 53 m
This is quite an easy summer hike to Brekkefossen Waterfall. It starts off with a recently constructed path of steps all the way to the Brekkefossen viewpoint. Next is a little more challenging and steep forest path. If it’s rainy, there is a lot of water running down the path. You may encounter several herds of sheep on your way, but the animals are usually really shy. The next part of this trek is physically far less demanding, but since the trail goes through swamps you should bring some good waterproof gear. It is possible to avoid this by leaving the trail and walking around. The last part requires you to step over the stream and finish with a steep walk all the way up to the lake. Keep an eye on red “T” markings and you will find your way up.Show more

Length: 3.2 mi • Est. 3 h 18 m
Briksdalsbreen is an arm of the great Jostedalsbreen Glacier in Norway, and it is a very popular destination. The hike to the glacier is on a wide gravel path. The hike is mostly a gradual uphill walk . Try to do this hike early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the large groups of people that trek to see this glacier. Less than a kilometer into this hike is the powerful Kleivafossen waterfall. The hike continues through the Briksdal valley and ends at a glacier lake. Here is where the famous glacier arm comes into full view.Show more
