About
This hike is a must-do if you want to get the most out of your visit to Bergen. It is a medium 3 hour hike away from the crowds with great views of Bergen and the surrounding area. We hike literally on top of Bergen and go off the beaten track through woods, past lakes, and on paths where we can hear the silence. Above Mt Fløyen our guide will take you through untouched terrain, reaching some higher summits with amazing views of Bergen and the ocean surrounding it. Our guide is local and will be able to tell you about Norwegian culture, habits and history.

      Wonderful Vidden hike.
      We had a wonderful hike yesterday with Joachim as our guide. We chose the Vidden hike and did a private hike for the two of us , and it was perfect. We were lucky to have perfect weather, and it was beautiful. Joachim was a great guide. He was very personable and interesting, and also knowledgeable about local history and botany. We really appreciated his company and highly recommend this hike!

      Tailored gorgeous hike
      Joachim and Thomas planned a route that was perfect for our ability, experience and goals. We spent a wonderful day exploring the beautiful countryside and returned happy and tired. Highly recommended.

      Great Day Hiking!
      We had a great day hiking with our guide, Jorgi (I’m sure I spelled that wrong!). The weather wasn’t great and it rained a bit and was foggy so we didn’t have any views, but Jorgi had so much interesting information about Norway and the local plants. We had a great time and it was one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Norway.

      All praise to Øystein, our stellar guide
      Fabulous experience. Even better than the glorious sights was our guide, Øystein. His love of his country and the local landscape was infectious. He could not have been kinder or more accommodating to our group. The hike itself was stunningly beautiful. Our picnic overlooking the fjord was an experience I will treasure. Can't recommend highly enough!

      A lot of promises but no real delivery
      I had high hopes on booking this 'exclusive' tour with a guide - lots of promises about the challenges and excitement that was ahead of me - no real delivery of anything that was anything that most people could and do do - first day the most challenging and had hoped that the next two days would fulfil some of the promises - instead second day involved walking around a lake and third day climbing up and down an easy mountain and back at my hotel early afternoon despite having paid for a full day. Cannot fault my guide as she just followed the instructions given by the company - upset as for what it cost had had high hopes. My sense is this company does more group tours rather than one on one experiences.

      The highlight of my trip
      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!

      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.

    My wife and I had the great pleasure of a personal hike with Frank earlier this week. What an uber fantastic way to see Bergen and its surrounds and to learn more than just the history of the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the way Frank gave us much more than the tourist book overview of Bergen and Norway. Definitely one of our highlights in Scandinavia. Can't wait to return with entire family and have Frank lead us around again.

    Our hike was led by Thor and it was incredible! This was an excursion from a cruise ship and tour company allowed us to form a group based upon hiking experiences and abilities. As strong hikers we went all the way to the top and then across. It was perfection! We had great weather, great hiking and a great guide! It is SO important to the overall experience to have hikers with similar abilities.

    Used Norway Mountain guides with my family in Bergen and two of their guides took us on an absolutely beautiful hike! The guides were incredibly kind and accommodating as well as super knowledgeable about Bergen fun facts and mountain trails. I highly recommend booking a hiking tour with them and seeing all the beauty that Norway has to offer!

    We went on the Top of Bergen hike with Jon before our cruise to Iceland. Such a great hike tailored to our abilities and included beautiful views. Jon was so knowledgeable about the Bergen area as well as Norway in general. We feel that he went above and beyond and loved the reindeer sausage and muesli bars he brought for snacks. This was our first day in Bergen and could not have been better. Jon made the hike so much fun!

    We did this hike as a cruise excursion organised by Silversea. Our guide was Norman and he was great and full of interesting information. We started by walking to the funicular then hiking from the top of the lift on a marked trail. The hike was not demanding though there were some uphill sections. We are a reasonably fit couple in our late 60s and we managed it easily.

    The organisation and timekeeping was excellent and I would definitely use this company again

    We were fortunate enough that Silversea Cruises used Norway Mountain Guides for their included short hike On Top of Bergen.
    Frank and his team were excellent and our guide Normann was entertaining, enthusiastic and still very caring of us as a group ensuring we were all ok at all times.
    We would without doubt avail of their services again when in Bergen.
    Thanks Frank and Normann for a memorable morning.
