Amazing views every step of the hike!
Our guide, Frank, lead us on the most beautiful hike in the mountains above Bergen. His expertise of outdoor activities and information about Bergen and the surrounding area was so interesting. He brought us Norwegian snacks to try, all delicious! We were sad to leave Bergen and all its activities and beauty.

Bergen Classic -Hiking Tour from Mt. Ulriken to Mt. Fløyen.
Due to adverse weather conditions this tour was cancelled, but my guide, Frank, suggested me taking another tour with him instead. Which I did, and I was not let down. Frank's professionalism and politeness combined with an amazing hiking experience won me overall. I highly recommend his tours.

Our hike was led by Frank. He did a great job of tailoring our route to suit the weather, trail conditions, and our abilities. He is an expert in the outdoors and also gave us much insight into life in Norway. A wonderful experience.
