Check out www.ut.no (norwegian)  for inspiration. Enter the port in the search field, be aware that some of the hikes are really challenging. What kind if hike do you have in mind? 

 

I think the first one might be "best"

Bergen, lots of oppertunities 

Stavanger, pulpit rock 

Olden, Loen Skylift, hiking behind the top. https://www.loenskylift.com/

Geiranger, 

Ålesund, both the City mountain and closeby "sugar top". https://www.visitalesund.com/things-to-do/hiking-trip-to-sukkertoppen-the-sugar-top-314-m-p923663

 

If you go for itinerary 3, Åndalsnes has a great viewpoint near the port
