The 7 Mountains Hike

Prologue

Surrounding Bergen are a number of mountains, each accessible via clearly marked and maintained hiking trails.  Every year in May, the local Trekking Association (Bergen od Hordaland Turlag) holds the 7 or 4 Mountains Hike, a day hike where around 8000 participants walk up Lyderhorn, Damsgårdsfjellet, Løvstakken, Ulriken, Fløyen, Rundemannen and Sandviksfjellet – the seven main mountains around Bergen.  It involves covering a distance of around 35km, with 2300m of vertical ascent and descent.
