About the trip
You meet at Bryggen in Bergen, where we will select bikes before the tour starts. Then we will drive over the Osterøy Bridge, which takes approximately 30 min from Bergen centre. This is your starting point for the bike tour. From there you will bike along the Osterøy fjord on a small countryside road with spectacilar views of the fjord and its surrondings. Along the way you will pass many charming houses and farms. You will pass the old church and the local store in Bruvik, before you arrive at Klyvvikje farm. Here the local host will live us a tour of the farm and share the history. We will see old tools and furniture, agriculture, animals, an old country shop and activities on the farm. Afterwards there will be a traditional meal and storytelling by the fireplace before we make your bed in a traditional lavvo for the night.
The next day we will have breakfast before we drive to the mountain. The road takes us up the mountainside from Bruvik, on a winding road with good views. We will then arrive at our starting point for the mountain hike. The hike takes us upwards on a small mountain path. As we get higher the view of the area gets more spectacular. When we reach the summit, we will have fantastic view over the fjords and the surroundings, if the weather permits it. At the summit we will have lunch with traditional Norwegian hiking food prepared by the guide, before we hike back down and return to Bryggen in Bergen.
