“Excellent hiking trip for those in decent shape”

Vidden Trail between Mt. Floyen and Mt. Ulriken
Ranked #12 of 146 things to do in Bergen
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 6, 2014

I love this trip and (according to the locals) I cheat by taking the "Ulriksbanen" up to the top. Real vikings walk all the way of course. You should bring food and drink and, if you stop and smell the flowers and enjoy the view, you should expect to spend six hours or more.

The good thing about this trail is that there is an "out". If you have bitten over more than you can chew and feel you can't hike mountains any more, half-way through, when you get to "Tarlebo", you can veer left and go down a decent road through "Isdalen".

This trip is not suitable for young children, they should probably be school age before attempting it. I wold also be careful carrying children in a contraption on your back since there are areas where you might fall. Not far and not dangerously, but neither would it be pleasant for a child on your back if you landed on her.

Do NOT forget your camera!

I have done the trail from Mount Ulriken to Mt Floyen. It is about 18 km trail. A reasonable level of fitness is required. The views are magnificent and quite varied from little rivers, lakes , mountains to Vidden plateau. You also have great view of Bergen.

A quite easy trail (by norwegian standards). If you want the sun in your face, walk from Fløyen to Ulriken.

A great hike with fantastic views for everyone. Starting from Fløyen to Ulriken is a little bit difficult.

We went the longest trip from Mount Floyen to Ulriken. It was very hard with many ups and downs. There are very beutiful views on the way to Ulriken but as we were too tired after 5 hours of Vidden, we just wanted to get down as fast as possible. Worst experience ever.
