I can't recommend Hiking Bergen enough! My tour guide, Vidar, was awesome. As a local, he was very knowledgable about the area and was able to share a lot about the Norwegian culture with me, which I really enjoyed. He was also very kind in going out of his way to help me when I was having trouble purchasing a train ticket and getting to the station. As for the hike itself, WOW! The views were absolutely out of this world! One of the best parts was that we only saw about 4 or 5 other people (all locals) during the entire hike. Definitely a highlight of my trip to Norway. If you're searching for a one-of-a-kind hiking experience that is tailored to your interests and needs, look no further!
The guide was very knowledgeable, sociable and wise. He helped a lot with time management and slowed down when I was tired.
The hike to Arnianipa is very nice, I d say Intermediate to advanced level since there is quite an elevation gain.
You hike up, you stop 70% through, and you continue to the top. There are many options in the last part, depending on the physical level and your choice. The guide knows them very well and guides you through them.
This was one of the best hiking I've ever done! The area is amazingly beautiful and Vidar is a friendly and knowledgable guide! He taught me a great deal about the area and life in Norway and offered me a very good Norwegian chocolate once we reached the top!
I definitely recommend this company, it was really one of the best experiences in my whole life!
Would highly recommend. Vidar is an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable and polite and has great conversation. My girlfriend and I hiked Bergen last weekend and the experience was excellent thanks to Vidar. Great views overlooking the fjords. We will look to do another one next year when we return!
Perfect day! Bought tickets online for the Funicular up Mt Floyen allowing us to skip the queue. Met Alex at the arrival gate of the Funicular. He was early and easily identified wearing a “Hike Bergen” shirt. Wonderful young man with impeccable manners and English. Great views of Bergen were enjoyed while walking on manicured hiking trails. A do not miss thing to do while visiting Bergen. Thanks Alex!
Vidar knows the mountains around Bergen and was an excellent guide for unfamiliar terrain. For anyone wanting to get a little further away from the usual hikes and tourist crowds near Bergen, give him a try. Gullfjellet is only minutes away, but it seems to be worlds apart. This is beautiful country, and Vidar is an expert local guide. Especially during the winter or spring, having a guide is worth the price if you’re unfamiliar with the area. I had a great time and plan on going back to do more hiking in this amazing part of the world.
