We take the express boat from Bergen city centre to Kleppestø on Askøy. From here, we walk to the highest point on the island and are rewarded with fantastic views of the Byfjord and the surrounding islands of Sotra and Øygarden and across to Bergen and its mountains. Although it requires some exertion, this may be the shortest and easiest walk that provides the best views of all the walks around Bergen.
This is an easy walk that is suitable for everyone. We stop en route and enjoy the view of the fjord, and being away from the crowds of tourists. If children come along on the walk, we will tell them stories about goblins and trolls.
This hike can be done all year, but don’t forget that the weather changes quickly. It is important to dress for the elements. The walk takes you up to an elevation of 300 metres. When we arrive at our destination, Kolbeinsvarden, you can enjoy your packed lunch and a well-deserved break. You take the boat or a bus back to Bergen, depending on when we finish the walk.
This is a walk for those who want panoramic views of the sea. We guarantee you a lovely and safe walk in good company and, not least, high spirits!

Terrain: Easy, but it can be wet and marshy. Three bridges have been laid in the terrain.
