Places like Bergen, Haugesund, Molde, Kristiansund, Ålesund and Stavanger all offer exciting walking opportunities.
The World Heritage City Bergen is situated close to the sea and between seven mountains. The mountains around Bergen offer great walking areas and unique nature experiences close to the city.
- The Fløibanen Funicular is one of Norway’s most popular attractions. You will find the funicular less than 150 metres from the Hanseatic wharf, Bryggen. The top of mount Fløyen offers spectacular views of the city, the sea and the surrounding islands, as well as a number of great walks.
- Ulriksbanen is the cable car that takes you to the highest mountain in Bergen, Mount Ulriken at 643 metres. From the summit you can enjoy great views of the city and the surrounding area, and it is also an excellent point of departure for a number of walks.
- Across the Vidden plateau ("Over Vidden") is one of the most popular hikes in Bergen. You can hike from Ulriken to Fløyen, or the other way round. The whole hike takes about five hours, in relatively easy terrain (hiking boots required!) and along the way you can enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding area.
