Fløyen is a must do while in Bergen. Fløibanen, the funicular brings you up the hillside, from Bergen city centre to the top of the mountain in 6 minutes. At Mount Fløyen you will find beautiful views of Bergen, the nearby islands, fjords and mountains surrounding Bergen.

Fløyen is a great destination for hiking, mountain biking and soft adventures. We are surrounded by hillsides, mountains, forests, nice little lakes and numerous trails. We offer daily guided hikes “Hiking Mount Fløyen" and Mountain bike rental from mid June until mid August.

We love children, and the children love Fløyen. Let the kids explore our playground, Fløysletten climbing playground, the Troll forest. Try out canoe paddling at lake Skomakerdiket (mid June - mid August), feel the adrenalin rush in FløyenKids ziplinepark and get at kiss from our lovely goats at Fløyen.

Fløistuen shop and cafè have souvenirs, perfect gifts and memories from Bergen and Norway. We offer local food as “Fløyenbollen", the cinnamon-bun and our organic soup “Fløyensuppen". Fløien Folkerestaurant is open daily from May until September.

This is a must do while in Bergen. The funicular takes you to the top and the view from the platform overlooking the city and harbour with the other islands is absolutely fabulous, highly recommended.

Coming to this place was absolutely amazing! I loved it! The view of the city is fantastic from up the hill and it is a perfect place to enjoy a pic-nic with a kviklunj as dessert. I was completely dazzled by the beauty of this place, not to mention a great place to take a picture with a huge troll... More

Funicular ride to top of Mount Floyen is a must see in Bergen. The views are incredible and there's a nice playground for small kids as well as nice hiking trails for others on the top.

This is a must do on any trip to Bergen! You can purchase a round trip ticket at the base for approximately 120 NOK. The top has amazing Panoramic views of the iconic city. There is also a restaurant and some live music was going on outside. There are multiple different options for hiking once you are at the top.... More

We rode the Furnicular up for the equivalent of AU$5 to INCREDIBLE views of all Bergen. If you walk back down you have stunning views and mind-boggling flora all the way down the well marked (concrete) trail. And plenty of odd little trails leading to hidden gems (amongst fallen trees and myriad stumps some clever bugger had climbed down and... More

There is little to do in Bergen on a week-end, Most everything was closed. The Funicular was operating even though the facilities when you get up there are closed. A good view of the city on a clear day

This is a must for Bergen tourists. The funicular train is an engineering delight. Once you are at top, the allround view of Bergen city is an undescribale view. One has to be here to experience this glorious sight, Unfortunately, the souveneir shop closes at 1800 which is unfair sice the train service is upto 2100 hrs
