See untouched Norwegian nature in this memorable and fun day tour which takes you on a legendary walk across the 'Vidden' plateau. In this private tour you will be in a group of up to 6 persons and you will be accompanied by an experienced guide. You will be starting your experience with a cable car ride up to Mt Ulriken and from there you will hike all the way to Mt Fløyen.

This results in an easier hike as Mt Ulriken is the highest mountain in Bergen at 643m altitude, while Mt Fløyen sits at 300m. On the way, you will learn about Bergen, Norway and Norwegian outdoor pursuits. You will get great views of Bergen and the Byfjord, a reminder that you are not far from Bergen city center.
