Bergen is beautifully situated, surrounded by seven mountains that lie like a paradise for hiking and outdoor activities.

On either one there is no shortage of stunning views of the city along the 35 kilometer long course.
Of the 7 mountains surrounding Bergen Mount Ulriken is the highest and has a separate mountain race called Ulriken Opp every year in May.
The race which will give you the most lactic acid is Stoltzekleiven Opp. With 801 steps from Fjellveien to Sandvikspilen and a rise of 315 meters, this is perhaps the year's toughest event.
