Europe’s largest mountain plateau, Hardanger Vidda, is about 2-3 hours drive from Bergen. You can also get there by train. In the winter it is ideal for cross country skiing. In the summer you can hike for days, and put up the tent anywhere. Or you can hike from cabin to cabin owned by the Norwegian Mountain Touring Association.
A popular activity is renting bikes and bicycling along the railroad. The old road that was built at the turn of the last century has been repaired for the use of mountain bicycle tourism. Read more about Rallarvegen:
