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 was on the top of my list to do but with the weather being so perfect and five cruise ships in port the line was insane! I gave up.

We didn´t take the funicular, too many people! so we took the hike, which is lovely. Up in the top, the view is very beautiful and you can enjoy lovely places like a lake, the restaurant etc.

The views at the top are stunning. The walk from bottom to top was varied and enjoyable. I'd recommend walking it over getting the Funnicular.

Floyen takes about 5 mins max to get to top. There is a good restaurant at the top which would provide a good meal- I would suggest booking. It is possible to walk to top of Ulriken from Floyen but it is a definite hike... More

Queues can be sizeable for the funicular ticket office. We booked our tickets via tourist office and as they are open tickets we could use when we wanted. ( ie when weather best). Having the tickets beforehand enabled us to... More
