We where advised by our guides to do this godola trip to mount Ulric and it was way better as a experience than the Floibana the day before. Also the Skyskraper restaurant had some amazing tastes With a view that was breathtaking
The top of the mount ulrikken is amazing with a fantastic view in clear weather... You can see all of Bergen and everything around.
You can choose to walk up on a hiking trip among goats climbing the sides of the mountain. Or you can take the cabelcar up and down.
If you live in midttown you can take a speciel bus from the streets of city center and they drive you to the entrance of the cabelcar with half and hour rides... So they drive you back again when your finished. You just time it with one of their rides.you can by a returnticket from them and it includes a trip to mount ulrikken with the cabelcar.
The tour books all talk about the hiking around Floyen, but this is where you want to be. This is lovely hiking above the tree line. The ups and downs are mild on top of the mountain, but the trails are rocky so be prepared. The views are just lovely, fjords and mountains, but also including over Bergen. There is a shuttle from downtown Bergen, and the cable car is easy. On weekends, though, it can be very busy with locals up there hiking around. There is a restaurant and store at the top of the cable car.
It is also possible to walk up to the top. A recommended trip, if you are in good shape! Sherpaer has built a nice stone staircase to the top.
One of the most beautiful hikes in Bergen, especially after they have built the new staircase in 2018. Very beautiful view over Bergen when you get up there. Also a nice restaurant with good coffee, cakes and sandwiches. But remember nothing in Norway comes cheap. ;)
