Vidden Hike

Visit Bergen
The hike between Mount Ulriken and Mount Fløyen is one of the most popular hikes in Bergen with beautiful views of Bergen and the region.

The Vidden hike offers some of the best views of all the city mountains in Bergen. If you walk it on a clear day you can see all the way to Folgefonna glacier. The hike is doable in both directions, but this map shows the hike from Ulriken to Fløyen. If you follow this route you will have less elevation during your hike because Ulriken is higher above sea level than Fløyen. The hike is about 5 hours from the top of Ulriken to the top of Fløyen. The time estimated by the map is unfortunately wrong. You can read more about the hike here.

Practical information and rules for hiking in the city mountains:

  • In a large part of the city mountains it is forbidden to swim or camp. The blue areas on this map are the areas where camping and swimming is prohibited.

  • Remember to keep your dog on a leash at all times.

  • There is a general ban from making campfires from 15. april to 15. september.

We do not recommend that inexperienced hike Vidden during the winter months. The weather can be very unpredictable and the hours of daylight are few. Your last opportunity to use a toilet is by the upper station of Ulriken or Brushytten, depending on which way you hike. Between Ulriken and Brushytten there are no toilet opportunities.
