2 options to get up Mt Ulriken - Cable Car or Walk. There are various walks available from easy to more demanding and difficult. The quickest route is the cable car and a return costs NOK150 for an adult. The journey is slow and steady and although it was quite breezy when we went up, the car did not sway... More

I jogged/walked from my hotel at Bryggen, early in the morning. When I came to the trail, I took the shortest route and it was very uphill and not very good for walking, because of a very stony path. The view at the top was nice, even if ther was fog covering all the fjods and towns. It was a... More

Fantastic views from the top. Beware - it is cold and windy even in August. The top is geared up for hiking - but the views are worth the trip even if yoy don't want a hike.

Right, I don't do cable cars. I hate them. They really do freak me out. However, my Mrs loves them and she talked me into going up Ulriken on the cable car (the things we do for love). The journey takes about 5 minutes up the mountain. This 5 minutes was spent gripping the sides of the car and looking... More

Took the cable car with views a tad more impressive than the funicular ride. The bonus being on Mount Ulriken, to walk and explore envy the country cottages perched on the plateau ... find oneself eye to eye with the hang gliders. Then make the descent, stopping to savour the view and admire the locals running up and around the... More

We visited mt. Ulriken last week. It is an amazing place, one must visit it while in Bergen. We went up with a cable car but I have seen many people walking all the way up. Once you are at the top, there is a lot to do. You can walk around, there are some very beautiful lakes and views... More

Went up to Mount ulriken in the afternoon, really pretty on top. After a couple of hours we planned on going down, then a big storm came in over us. They had to close down the gondolas. After one hour they re-opened, but it was a scary ride down. The gondola shook and were swinging uncontrolled in the hard wind.

On a clear day, the views are incredible. At peak times, there is a long wait for the cable car. Worth doing if you are not in a rush. Avoid peak times if you can...

Exellent view. The walk up to the Mt Ulriken is not easy and demand some physical strength but if you are physically fit you can do it. I walked this morning it was a challenging yet rewarding walk. There are sign posts to indicate the way up and actually there are some paths to choose from. 1/3 of the path... More

Hang the expense, take the cable car (or hike up if you are fit) to get sweeping views of Bergen, Hordaland county and the North Sea. On the day of my visit I was disappointed to see man made rubbish strewn around. Watch out for 'natures' rubbish in the form of sheep droppings. Sheep wander the mountain top.
