“Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

The views from Mount Ulriken are not to be missed. If go to Bergen do this trip.

You can catch the Mount Ulriken bus from just round the corner from the Fish Market and can buy a combi ticket for the return bus and cable car ride.

We had to wait about 25 minutes to catch the cable car as they hold 16 people and leave about every 6-7 minutes. If you arrive with a full bus and there are independent travellers as well I can imagine you may wait for a while to get the cable car.

If you are fit you can also hike up. Either way you should do this.

“Great views of bergen”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We enjoyed the views up here and also did some walking - there are a lot of trails but even though we followed the guide book from the tourist information we still got lost! The trails are not well marked and turn off points are easily missed! Lovely scenery though and great to feel you are out in the mountains yet just above bergen . It's very accessible

“Well worth doing.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Nice ride up and down in cable car. Fantastic views of Bergen. Could have stayed all day. Unfortunately, I can't walk very far but it looked like there are some great hikes from here.

“A little pricey, but great views”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We spent an evening here and hiked for a couple hours, partly along the Vidden trail. Incredible views of Bergen, the water, and the mountains. Great way to spend a late afternoon. I understand if the cruise ships are in, the line can be very long. We experienced no line at all at about 5PM.

“good to hike”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

There are several ways to get on top, and it's a nice sweat on the way up. You feel you put some effort into it, but not that much that you feel like you're dying. And I am referring to very occasional hikers. The locals seem to do it when they are walking their dog out.
