The trip to Ulriken is by a blue bus from very close to the Tourist Information centre. It has a glass roof and is possibly used all year around. Bus takes you to the cable car stop, where there are two cars (one red and one yellow). Trip to the summit takes about 10 minutes, photo opportunities are great from... More

It was a little chilly on August 12 but an enjoyable ride up and fun to hike around on the trails. I wasn't impressed with the restaurant on the top. I was surprised that the top was quite barren.

Great walk circling Bergen with amazing views on fjords, lakes, mountains and the city. The path is well indicated and on a sunny day it's a real treat.

Modern, clean, swift cars, with brilliant views. The weather actually cleared for me at the top. There are walks you could take yourself on.

From downtown take bus #12. Get off at Haukeland. That will cost you NOK 31. Then you can buy a ticket to get up the mountain using a cable car which costs NOK 150 round trip. The scenery is impressive provided you have a clear day.

I think, this is the best place to observe Bergen and its neighborhoods. Wonderful views and a variety of trails in the forest, there are lakes and rocks, there are places to stay for picnic and benches.

We took a walk from the hospital/ laboratorium. Interesting-challenging paths. To walk up was no problem, to walk down was different story. To install hiking signs in some places would be a great time-saver. Overall the experience was great.

A must see take a tour bus from the fish market and get the cable car to the summit. Get amazing 360 views of the mountains and the fjords. Great for walking or just taking photos. There is a nice cafe at the top.

I am nervous of heights so was a bit worried about the cable car, but it wasn't too bouncy! There is a seat at the back for a few people The views are amazing and I have this as a must see on a visit to Bergen. We took the tourist bus from the centre which was a bit expensive,... More
