I booked the Vidden hike but on the morning of Mount Ulriken was socked in with fog. Our guide Frank adjusted the route and we instead hiked up to Mount Floyen and throughout the back country. Although the day never cleared for us to enjoy any views, it was still a lovely hike with mossy green woods, lakes and wildflowers. Frank was a terrific guide and as a Bergen native had lots of stories and insights into Norwegian life and culture. Even if the weather doesn't cooperate you will have a great time with Norway Mountain guides!

My daughter and I did the Vidden hike with Frank, owner of Norwaymountainguides.com yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the views of the Bergen area. Frank was so knowledgeable and such a flexible guide. He completely tailored the hike to the likes and needs of our small group. I would highly recommend using this company for your hiking/tour needs while in Bergen.

ÅÅÅ Nice to hear, thank you so much.
Sometimes it is far better not to think business but rather go with small groups where we have time for good conversations and appreciate nature around us. Thank you so much for choosing NMG so your supplier for one of your few holiday days.

We booked a one day hiking tour with mountain guides. We were so pleasantly surprised. From the booking til the final step of the hike. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the areas hiking, troll lore and Norway itself. He was very animated and a great conversationalist. We enjoyed our day very very much and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Bergen. Thanks for your expertise and generosity.

We had a terrific time today hiking the trails above Bergen with our wonderful guide from Norway Mountain Guides, Birgitte.

We were initially unsure if we wanted to hike by ourselves or take advantage of a local guide. We decided a couple of days prior to our hiking day to book a guide on line. Signing up was quick and easy and we got an immediate confirmation.

We met Birgitte on time at the designated time and place. It started well as she greeted us with a big smile and quickly engaged us in conversations about what we want to do during our hike. We proceeded up the funicular with her placing us for a good view for the quick ride up.

We initially thought of hiking the Vidden trail but she mentioned that trail was very wet due to recent weather and that she would recommend her personal favorite trails that would provide very beautiful panoramic views. We took her up on this recommendation and we were both very happy that we did. We saw some terrific vistas and the various trails were in decent hiking condition.

Birgitte also took good care of us. She checked with us for any needed breaks, picked a picturesque mountain top for a lunch break and double checked that the trails were within our hiking ability.

What put the trip in a top category, was Birgitte’s friendly personality and her relating her experiences growing up in and around Bergen.

Norway Mountains Guides does recommend packing a knapsack for the changing weather in the area and the advice worked well. Given all the special trails that we experienced, booking with Norway Mountain Guides turned out to be an excellent decision.

All in all, a good day spent hiking!

Thank you very much for a long and wonderful report, very nice for others to read far more than we can describe on our website.
I'm glad you're bringing Birgitte forward, she's a wonderful guide. We at Norway Mountain guides have chosen to focus on well-educated guides who are all local and know the area well. This alone is not enough, the guide must love the outdoors.
