Great escape from the city life in beautiful open mountain landscape. Normally it takes you four hours to hike from the top of Mt. Ulriken to Mt. Fløien. Must do for nature lovers. Often hiked by locals.

very nice views back to Bergen and the fjords on one side and the mountains on the other. Can be completed with kids, but there is only one basic place to stop for a drink or small snack

We did the walk counter clockwise starting at the cable car station and ending at the funicular. With the sustained down hill period at the end of our walk we were glad to do it that way. It took 4.5 hours from station to station....More

This is a full day affair and will take some moderate planning to achieve and enjoy. You will need some good hiking/walking clothes, lots of water and a little bit of physical capability. I would allow for 6 or 7 hours to go across the...More

The Floibanen furnicular leaves from just behind Bryggen area (near McDonald's and Starbucks) for 45kr one-way. Once at the top of Floyen, you can choose your walk from there, no need to register. Most walks are well signed... More
