About Fjellveien

Once on Fjellveien, walking along it offers more of a stroll than a hike (getting up to it on foot is reasonably steep, though). The 4632 meters long path offers panoramic views over Bergen. It is a popular path for young and old alike, including joggers, couples in love, and prams. If you are a runner, you might also join many others in choosing Fjellveien as a favourite running route. From Fjellveien you can access other trails that take you further up onto Fløyen, Sanviksfjellet, or Rundamanen. You can read more about Fjellveien here

How to get there

  • Click here for a walking route from Byparken. Once you've reached the water fountain (called Hesten trenger hvile, or "horses need rest"), Fjellveien extends out both to the north and south. There will be a sign that indicates Fjellveien as well as routes up Fløyen.
  • It is also possible to take the Fløibane Funicular to the mid-station and walk to Fjellveien from there (but not all departures stop at the mid-station).  
  • If you need to use public transit to get into the city centre, You can search for the best transit options for you on the Skyss Travel Planner, you can put in "Bergen Sentrum" to get the most options for transit to the city centre.

Please practice safe hiking practices while in Norway. If you are new to hiking, make sure to go with experienced hikers or join an a group that offers experienced tour leaders, such as BSI.
