Hiking on “Top of Bergen” – Our most popular hike!
This hike is a must-do if you want to get the most out of your visit to Bergen. It is a medium 3+ hours 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 feel the silence. The view is comparable to the view from Bergen Classic, but the tour is shorter and easier.
