28 August: The mountains surrounding Bergen provide numerous recreational activities, and it is here you will find the citizens of Bergen at the weekends.

Join Study Bergen for a hike in the area around Mount Fløyen on Sunday the 28th of August.


Preliminary program

12:00 Meet at Vågsallmenningen for registration
12:15 Fløibanen funicular to Mount Fløyen
12:15-12:30 Photo stop at Mount Fløyen
13:00* Arrival Brushytten short stop

15:30 Skomarkerdiket
16:30 City centre via Skansenmyren
*Times are approximate and will depend on the speed and size of the group.

The route is relatively easy, and follows a stony path for most of the hike. As long as you are reasonably fit, you won't have any problems even if you haven't hiked before.

Meet up at Vågsallmenningen kl 12:00 for registration. This event is free of charge and Study Bergen will cover a one-way ticket to Fløyen on the Funicular for students attending UiB, HiB, KHiB, NHH, NLA and VID. Students attending other institutions and friends of participants are welcome to join but must cover the cost of the funicular ticket themselves.

We will purchase tickets to the funicular in advance, we therefore ask participants to register using the registration form below. If you have not registered we can not cover the ticket on Fløibanen for you. The registration closes Wednesday the 24th of August at 13:00.

Bring a good packed lunch and dress for the weather. We won’t cancel this event if it is raining, but we will cancel it if it is foggy or should there be a storm.

Please note that neither Study Bergen, nor your host institution can be held liable if you should injure yourself on the trip, or lose/have possessions stolen from you.
