“Don't underestimate this climb!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I hiked up Fløyen, Ulriken, Rundemanen and Blåmanen, but nothing was more challenging than this one. The hike goes all the way up Sandviksfjellet with Sandvikspilen as its end point. The way itself starts as an asfalt road, which turns into steps, rocks and near the top into wooden steps. There are no real 'stops' to take a break. It keeps on going up steeply.

How to get there: take the bus (direction Åsane terminal) and get off at Sandvikstorget or Munkebotn.

“800 steps to the top”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This mountaintop is one of the 7 surrounding Bergen, located in Sandviken, 5 minutes by bus from Bryggen.
If you can climb this mountain in less than 20 minutes you know you are in very good shape.
If you do it in less than 45 minutes you are still in good shape.

“Don't come here if you just want a leisurely stroll up the mountain”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This is where people come to exercise and there is an annual race to the top, steadily gaining popularity. Stoltzekleiven is a trail that takes you straight up the mountain, and it's a trail that separates the fit from the unfit. Don't go too fast at the beginning or you will regret it. Forget the 8 minute record. You should be proud if you can do it in less than 20 minutes. If the climb to the top didn't take your breath away, the view will surely do it! Enjoy!

“The ultimate outdoor training”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

A trip up Stoltzekleiven will leave you with a solid workout combined with a spectacular view. On a sunny day it is nothing like draging your body up this steap hill! If you are in a great shape you can try the record which is just over 8 minutes.

Good luck and enjoy the workout!

“Exhilerating hike”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This is a steep but relatively short hike to where you have a great view down on Bergen and west. I did it on the last evening of our week in Bergen. It was a highlight that I look back on and am glad I did.
