Not a easy hike for people who aren't in shape. 908 steep rock steps. I did Stoltzekleiven to Fløyen. Be prepared to take off clothes during the ascending an to put back your clothes during the descending or on top of it! Can be rainy or windy. After a warm coffee, I used the funicular to come back down from Fløyen since it was raining a lot, but please if not, walk back, it's not special or worth it. The forest is. Enjoy! ⛅️🦵🙌👟 Don't be that annoying tourist who films everything.

Stoltzekleiven is a steep paved trail and stairs with approximately 722 steps up to Sandviksfjellet and Sandvikspilen. Stoltzekleiven is short but hard and one of the most popular trails in Bergen .

The more you climb, the better the view you get! The trip is suitable for children from about 5 years old. Not recommended when it is snow or ice (can be very slippery).

From Sandvikspilen at the top of Stoltzekleiven you have breathtaking views! (see my attached photos).

Highly recommended trip from a local!

Regards
Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.

During a recent cruise, we stopped in Bergen for the day and with a beautiful clear day, decided to climb the Stoltzekleiven. (Bergen has rain on 75% of days)

We found on way through quaint streets and ancient village areas by google maps and asking people along the way for directions. Once we got onto the hand built pathway made mostly of stones, the climb was quite arduous as I was recovering from 4 pelvic fractures

Lots of lithe young ladies sponsored by Lorna Jayne and the like, ran past us as the trained for the annual race here. (Quite safe here as path is one way!

The view from the top is spectacular and we then walked beside the lake until we came to Floyen where we had a nice lunch and admired the stunning view of the harbour and coast line

The fenicular took us back down to the harbourside.

Great walk after a bit of cabin fever on our cruise with SilverSeas Whisper.

I go up this trail weekly. Its a must when in Bergen. I do not recommend walking down. Use the back roads in stead, they are better and will take you trough beautiful landscape. If you have little time, take left when you get to the main trail (or gravel road really) and you'll be down in twenty minutes. If you want to continue to mount Floien, take a right and you'll be at Floien in 30-40 minutes. The paths and roads are well organized with signs and distances. Its hard to get lost, and you'll never regret doing it!

Want to get to grips with your tolerance for lactic acid? Stoltzekleiven is steep and with roughly 800 stone steps, you'll get to the top of the mountains surrounding Bergen and breathtaking views. You don't need to kill yourself in the effort, but 330 altitude meters on a 900 meter trail should tell you that you can't expect to climb to the top without a pulse. In good shape and ready for a challenge? Reckon 10-15 minutes. Reasonable shape and looking for a good run? Reckon 15-25 minutes. 30 minutes with a break to admire the view. 45-60 minutes for a family hike. It's well worth the effort in any case!
You can walk down again, but choosing one of the nicer trails around and down the back side is a better option. You'll walk down in 40 minutes.

I read about it and decided I needed to do it! Getting directions from Trip Advisor , I walked from my apartment in Bergen to the start of this crazy climb. I am in good shape but found this "hike" to be very challenging..it is vertical...mostly rocks you use as stairs and at the end, some wooden stairs. I stopped a couple of times just to give my heart a rest, you will be breathing hard and sweating. However, there were people passing me and some even almost running. Just when you think you can't go further, you are at the top! Your heart settles down and then you drink in the views from this high point over Bergen. It sure helped to have a perfectly sunny day in the 60's. If I go back, I will do it again!!!! Bring water!

We took the funicular up to the top of Mt Floyen and then walked down on the Stoltzekleiven. It was not a difficult walk and signage ensured that everyone arrived at their destination. Views were beautiful so ensure that you take a camera with you.We walked down the route in the evening so had the benefit of seeing the sunset. The paths were paved and the stairs were very safe. We ran into the herd of goats that live on the Mt Floyen during our descent and did not encounter any mosquitoes which surprised us. It was the highlight of our last night in Bergen! This is a "must do" activity when visiting Bergen!

We walked to Stoltzekleiven from the cruise ship and then started the ascent. When I read reviews, I read that you climb up stairs all the way. Now that is true, but some of the stairs are very steep, some are very narrow, some are uneven and some bits of the path are jagged bits of rock. I would have preferred to have been in my hiking boots rather than my running shoes!

The overall path is narrow and steep and I found it more difficult than Pulpit Rock - a lot shorter but much more tiring. The view from the top was beautiful and well worth the effort.

We then continued walking along the contour path to the funicular at Mount Floyen. It was a very easy and pretty walk with a few paths leading back to the city. We caught the funicular down just because we wanted to experience it. Overall it was a lovely morning, taking us no more than 3hrs in total from the ship.

Half of the population of Bergen has done it. Sting has done it. You should to. It will be tough. It will make you regret. But when you reach the top you will feel invincible.
What this is, is a stairway to the great view on the top of Bergen. The trail has an elevation of 313.5 meters and spans approx. 800 steps. It will make you sweat, but having done this, you can look all the citizens of Bergen in the eyes. And you will have their respect. And; whatever you treat yourself to afterwards, you deserve it.

It's a short but really steep hike. Prepare to break a sweat, but the view is well worth it. Oh, and don't wear jeans...
