      The amazing Ole
      What an amazing day out. We thoroughly enjoyed the snow shoe hike. Ole was brilliant, knowledgeable, funny and overall a superb guide. Ole really went out of his way to make our experience unforgettable. With it being Easter he even brought us some chocolate 😋. Thanks again Ole, you made an unforgettable new experience even more memorable.

      Unforgettable experience!!
      We absolutely loved every second of our winter mountain snowshoe hike adventure. Our guide Ole was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable, very patient and a lot of fun. He insured that we were comfortable the entire time and also allowed us a lot of freedom on the hike. He was also very interesting and great to talk to. The experience run smoothly from starts finish – from pick up in Bergen city centre to collection of the gear to the hike itself. We were very lucky with the weather – it was a lovely day with blue skies, and the hike was extremely picturesque. However, I think we would have enjoyed the experience regardless because of our amazing guide. All in all, it was a perfect hike with great weather and a new friend in Ole. The hike was approximately 10 km round-trip with some significant elevation – however, I have full confidence that the guide would have tailored this to our fitness levels. I will not only be recommending this experience to my friends – but I will be returning myself for more in the future.

      Perfecte snowshoe wandeling, zelfs nog in maart!
      This was an amzing snowshoe trip. Although in Bergen there was no snow the two guides drove us up the mountain and we spend a good couple of hours there snowshoeing! Two guides on a small group (6-7). Looking after us very well regarding safety and to fully enjoy our trip! Well done Norway Mountain Guides!

      M’y best memory in Northway
      It was an incredible experience: my best memory of Norway. The guides are listening and sharing their experience. The summit was breathtaking. An experience to do with family or even solo! Thanks again to the team of guides♥️♥️

      A fun drizzly day!
      I went with Oystein and 3 other guests. Pick up in the car was prompt and as specified. It was a very drizzly, overcast day so was concerned we would struggle to find snow but Oystein knew exactly where to go. Despite the rain, we saw some beautiful sights, although no views due to the clouds (I can imagine the views would have been stunning!). Really enjoyed the hot chocolate and Norwegian snacks in the cabin- a chance to hear about Oystein’s incredible life whilst snacking on reindeer sausage! As a solo traveller, I felt comfortable and safe at all times and really enjoyed the day. Thanks Oystein!

      The best way to see Norway.
      Had a fantastic time, highly rated. Øystein was an excellent guide and we were completely comfortable with his skills and abilities, but also - he was incredibly friendly and good natuted, which just eased us into the whole experience. It was excellent throughout, with great views, and never too challenging - but just enough that it was engaging. Would recommend anyone going to Bergen to reach out and take one of these tours, it's the best way to see Norway.

      Even though it was raining where we were staying, our guide found the snow. Such a fun guy. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

      This was the best activity during our trip in Bergen. So much fun with the guide! We had a great view, liked the hot chocolate on top of the mountain, the sledging and the walk across the frozen lake. Definitelly recommend this trip.

      Stunning views with a fantastic guide
      Øystein was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and made sure the route we did reflected the weather limitations. The 360 views were stunning and going with a small group meant that they were not obstructed. I would highly recommend this company and take advantage of their experience.

      An absolute must in Bergen
      To keep it short, this experience was worth every krone. As a solo Aussie backpacker on a tight budget, I was on the fence contemplating booking this hike. I am so glad I did because it was amazing, couldn’t have asked for better weather,. The views were stunning! Thomas and Øystein, our guides, were both incredibly friendly, loved having a chat, and were very experienced. Made the day that much more enjoyable, along with the group. They took us on an extended hike which was really wicked too. Thanks guys.

      December visit..
      We booked a snowshoeing tour a few weeks before we came to Bergen. We love getting into the mountains and thinking the weather would be wintery we booked this. What a fabulous day we had..our guides were the making of it, what knowledge they have. Such good company. The only thing they can't control is the weather. It came in and snowed, which meant there was no far-reaching views from the top, but that was fine, they set the scene well enough.

      A great day
      My husband and I really enjoyed the hiking tour with guides Ole and Øystein. They took our group of seven (I think it was) to a location about 45 minutes drive from Bergen. As we climbed up into the hills the guides were happy to stop so we could look at and taste various wild berries (e.g. blueberry, ligonberry, etc), which was fun. Both guides spoke excellent English and were very knowledgeable about the area and were also happy to share information about life in Norway. Our group members had various fitness levels so after a while Ole and Øystein offered two options if our group wanted to consider splitting. One option was to go at a slower pace and walk to a lower scenic location, and the other option was to go faster and higher. My husband and I plus one other group member opted for the faster, higher walk. Ole led the way on that option and bounded along. It was a strenuous walk but the view from the top was well and truly worth the effort. We stopped at the top for lunch and Ole brought out some Norwegian snacks to complement our own packed lunches, which was a nice touch. The atmosphere on the hike was friendly, relaxed and informative. All in all it was a great day and one of the highlights of our time in Norway.

    Great tour by our mountains guide Gaute, Gaute was knowledgeable, friendly, spoke perfect English but most importantly he was enthusiastic and excited to tell us all about the Norwegian country side. The coffee, bread and cheese were a great touch. The day we went it was just the two of us on the tour, the tour operator is a standup business. They could of easily cancelled due to so few guests but they honored their commitment, highly recommend this tour, the highlight of our five days in Norway.

    The tour guide was great and friendly. This tour was booked for us and perhaps not what we would have opted for usually. As groups are mixed, then we found the group quite slow walking which is the risk with a group. The guide was accommodating and was pointing out places to go ahead. It’s a fairly easy trail to follow. A lot of the time taken was waiting for others. It’s a great walk to do for the views, if you’ve got limited time and fairly fit though the tour may take too long. We did learn about other aspects of life, culture, the fauna so not just about walking. I think the tour is excellent for those less experienced in travelling or wanting to find out about Norway and mix with others

    The "On top of Bergen" hike was without doubt the highlight of my recent trip. Our guide Øystein was friendly and knowledgeable, taking us off the marked tracks and up to stunning viewpoints. I was blessed with good weather, but I am sure I would have enjoyed the trip regardless. Hikes are tailored to ability level and weather conditions, you will always be safe and able to enjoy the trip. I highly recommend Norway Mountain Guides and hope to hike with them again in future!

    We debated with ourselves if we needed to have a guide for a hike that we might be able figure out on our own. We made the right choice to go with On Top of Bergen rather than to do it alone! First, there's a lot less stress. It's great to be able to enjoy the views without worrying constantly about finding the right trails. Second, it's really nice to be able to meet someone local who's happy to tell you about the area and living in Bergen. Third, we got to taste some local foods for snacks while hiking. It was great fun and we enjoyed conversation with our sweet guide, Tobias, very much! Definitely worth the money for the experience.

    so cool to hear, I think many mountain people think the same. Do we need a guide? You don't always do that, but agree that no matter where in the world you are, you learn more, get to see areas you wouldn't have found yourself, and are sure to get the most out of your precious holiday time.

    Gaute, a Bergen local, was our fantastic tour guide! Despite rainy weather and extreme fog, he made our hike safe and memorable, teaching us about trees, mushrooms, and history. He even guided us to forage for berries. During a break, he introduced us to Norway's brown cheese and other delightful snacks. Meeting other couples in our small group was a bonus. If you're in town for a short time, I highly recommend this hike. Gaute's knowledge and hospitality made our day in rainy Bergen.

    This was a great experience. Our guide was fantastic. Not only was the hike wonderful, getting to go down paths we would never have travelled on our own, but it was also very nice speaking with a guide who also educated us about life in Norway and the surrounding area. My only regret is that we ran out of time and did not also hike the Vidden. Next time!

    Ohh great to hear, many people "do not need a guide" due that they are used to mountain hiking, but as you said having a good guide learns you a lot about the local area! Thank you so much for your review.

    We did the hike last Saturday with Frank and we’re having a very good time. Good hike, good conversations and I could take as many pictures as I want. He also adapted to what we want and we made a new route according to the group wish. I like to have local guide so I can learn more about the country itself. I would definitely use his service again for another hike.

    Thomas was an excellent guide! My wife and I were slower hikers than the rest of the group & Thomas was good about waiting for us to catch up and walking with us from time to time. We really enjoyed the hike, the views and getting to meet hikers from different countries.

    This tour was amazing! Frank was a great guide and not only took us on a beautiful trail but taught us new information about Bergen. The whole trail was so pretty and the views from the top are stunning. It was an unforgettable tour for my first hike in Norway and definitely hope to be able to go on another tour with him in the future.

    Please look no further- if you're looking for small group guided hiking. I did 2 tours with the NMG and both were fantastic experiences because of the tour guide (Frank) and the amazing people I met on the tours. Never thought of myself as a hiker but I fell in love with hiking. Will be back for more!
