Owner description: 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.

“Funny transportation & beautiful views”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

A quick way up with the funi gives you the opportunity to see Bergen from above and in all its extensions, suburbs & harbour... Really beautiful. Easy path on top of the mountain goes through a very well groomed forest filled with children playing and people jogging. The views are really inspiring. Was there in late October with yellow trees and clear sky, fantastic. Not to ne missed.

“Great over view of Bergen.”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Funicular had technical problems this morning so many people were turned away. We went back at 2:45pm and there was no queue.
Price of a single ride was NOK 43,00, return. - NOK 85,00
We took the funicular ride up the hill and walked back down into town. I would say that you would need to be reasonably fit to walk up the hill as it seemed steep coming down.

“Great view of Bergen”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Easy access from the harbor. Fun ride up the hillside to a wonderful park with a great view. If you like to walk, there are a lot of path and you can easily walk back down to town. Just buy a one way ticket and take a nice easy stroll back to the harbor.

“great for a little hike around”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The trip with the funiculaire is pretty expensive but absolutely worth it if the weather is great. There are lots of hiking trails up there. No worries, you wont get lost, there is signs everywhere.
The view from up there to the city is SPECTACULAR

“Mount Floyen and it's Funicular”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Bergen is our last port of call after the Midnight Sun Arctic Circle Cruise before heading to Dover and Paris. We opted for a City Tour which included a ride on the Funicular up Mount Floyen and it's views down onto the beautiful city of Bergen below. Our scheduled time on the mountain was short and I am sure there was a lot to see if we if we had the time. However, the primary reason to ride the Funicular is to see the view from the mountain. Looking down onto the Harbour City of Bergen will leave us with a lasting memory of what a beautiful country Norway is and the only way to see Bergen really.
