Surrounding areas, Bergen
Kanadaskogen/forest: A beautiful forest west of Bergen with nice paths and small trails and ponds/lakes.
Buss from Bergen, 15 - 20 min:
Take bus "nr.18 Barliveien" from Olav Kyrres gate to the last stop Barliveien/Spelhaugen in Fyllingsdalen and to the forest Kanadaskogen. If you walk the main gravel road from Spelhaugen you'll get to Tennebekktjernet (small lake) and Nipedalen, from where you can get bus nr.16 back to city centre. I recommend that you try some of the detour trails as well. Krokatjern is a smaller and beautiful lake, a short walk from the parking at Spelhaugen/busstop.
You should go on the 'Norway in a Nutshell' tour if you can. There are brochures about it at Oslo and Bergen train stations. We had heard about the tour before leaving Australia and I'm glad that we did...it was well worth the money.
It was a wonderful trip, and the scenery was amazing! During the day you take trains, a bus and a boat...all with great views! Especially the bus trip!
Absolutely stunning rail trip from Voss. Get a train from Voss or Bergen to Myrdal and then get on an old train and head down into Flam.
Such a pretty journey with mountains and waterfalls.
You even have chance to get out half way down and admire a large thundering waterfall. Stunning, it really is!
Spend a few hours raoming Flam or get on a fjord cruise at the bottom the choice is yours
Never do it myself, but the surroundings of Bergen gives lot of oppurtunities for some really challenging climbing.
View on Sognefjord from Vikafjel^
This picture was taken of the Vikafjell coming down to the town of Viksøyri on road 13. Just another beautiful Norwegian mountain road.
If you like you can go skiing in Norway. Almost everywhere in Norway they rent or sell ski's. We tried it as well...a few lessons couldn't hurt!
