Cabin ride up nice and not scary at all, even if you have vertigo issues. And the views from the mountain very beautiful, see more than from the Mt. Floyen.

Unlike tourist info told us there are plenty of hiking trails up around Ulriken! And the trails were great, nice scenary all the way. Even nice lambs came to say hi to us. Our 11yr son found the hiking nice as it was so much to see, usually his walking willingness can be less... However the paths are rocky so make sure the wear proper sports shoes. Quite a bit Up and downs so only for somewhat sporty people. After hiking great to have lunch at the restaurant, good food at reasonable price.

Looked fun to even walk down from the mountain. I regret not doing it.

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.

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

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.

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.
