Have been to the top of Ulriken many times this summer, thanks to my adolescent puppy. There are so many beautiful routes up to the top, so if the weather is agreeable, do not miss this whenever in Bergen.

Get the #2 or 3 bus from Xhibition and take the cable car up. A swaying ride and heady views all around, definitely the best in Bergen. On a clear day you can see for many more miles than from Fløyen.

Mount Ulriken is accessible by cable car and there are amazing views. Beware though, in Winter the cable car is often closed due to wind conditions, so check the forecast before you plan your day!

Catch the old bus from town to the lift, suggest getting earliest bus to avoid long queue and waiting time. Views over Bergen and mountains stunning

Easy access by cablecar, but With good fotwear, walking up and Down makes the experience more Complete. Rather spend Your Money on Food/drinks at the top

It is not the easiest mountain to get on, but it is definitely worth doing it if you are fit. Fantastic nature around, though when we were there it was very cloudy so the views were limited.

We ended our visit in Bergen by hiking up to the top to see the sunset. Maybe we should have brought an extra jacket, but it was well worth the visit!

We spent 160NOK to ride the Ulriken643, not the cheapest ride by normal standards, but the view this provides is amazing! There's nothing to do up there, but the ride is refreshing as it is beautiful. One word of advice is to go early in the morning and on an off-peak period so that you can avoid taking the ride...
