“Spectacular view!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A must-do if you visit Bergen. If you're in good shape, take the bus from the city center to the cable car station, or Montana, and take the hike up the mountainside. Great view all the way!

“Hike it if you can, but the cable car is OK too”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Mount Ulriken is the highest of the 7 mountains surrounding Bergen, at 643 meters above sea level. If you are fit, you should hike it, as the view from the top is so much more rewarding when you had to sweat for it. The hike is quite steep, but not a problem if you are reasonably fit. If you are not it will just take a little longer. Some say that the views from mount Fløien are actually better. If you want to see the city itself that may be true, but at Ulriken you also have a great view to the South East, where you can see as far as Folgefonni in Hardanger on a clear day. Well worth the effort.

“Nice hiking trails, views and restaurant”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

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.

“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.
