Fjellveien stretches 4,6 km from Amalie Skramsvei in Sandviken to Bellevue.

About Fjellveien

Getting up to Fjellveien on foot is fairly steep but the path itself offers more of a stroll than a hike. The 4632 meters long path offers panoramic views over Bergen. It is a popular path for young and old alike, including joggers, couples, 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 to Fløyen, Sandviksfjellet, 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 Fløibanen 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, search transit options on the Skyss Travel Planner. Write "Bergen Sentrum" at your destination to get the most transit options to the city centre. For more information, take a look at our transportation guide.

There are many options for where to start Fjellveien allowing you to walk as much or as little of it as you want. Here is a map of a round trip route starting and ending in Byparken that includes much of the path, 8.4 km.
