Mount Ulriken was a pleasant surprise. It was a sunny day so we headed to the fish market area to catch the blue bus to Mount Ulriken. We sat on the top of the double decker bus and waited ten mins for departure. It was hot- but when the bus started the views were worth it. Fifteen mins later we... More

My husband and I tried this on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We loved it. It was a quick ride to the top after a short line and the views from the top of Mt. Ulriken could not be beat. We even went on an overcast day and it still is our favorite thing that we did in Bergen... More

We lucked out and saved Ulriken for an afternoon that was stunning. After being up Floyen, Ulriken was even more amazing. It's been a long time since I have been up that high on a mountain. We took the cable cars late in the afternoon and there was no wait. We walked from where we were staying so didn't deal... More

Gorgeous views from the top of mount Ulriken. The kids had a blast riding the cable car. A must-visit for any age group while in Bergen!

Most probably the best of Bergen is the nature. Whereever you go you find waterfalls, mountains, and sea. It is just excellent to see this part of the world.

We stayed at the hostel Bergen Montana right at the foot of the scenic Ulriken. The hill was covered with c louds and so we did not attempt and hike or cable car ride. We did love the beauty of the surroundings at the foot of the hill

Hiked to the very top along cable car wires. The hike starts just behind the cable car building and it takes around 1 hour. It can be challenging depending on your physical conditions. On the very top it could be windy, so you have to have good jacket with you. Otherwise the views are breathtaking wherever direction you look at!

It is great to be 'on the top of' Bergen - amazing views! It works well but I have one criticism - they only have 2 cable cars! This great attraction with only 2 cable cars (can accommodate +- 12 people at a time) so you can wait quite a bit to get to the top and back. However, the... More

This is the highest point in Bergen and is really specatular. after reaching the top only we realized that this was double the height of Eiffel Tower - wow. The cable car ride was an awesome experience - riding over the tops of the trees was a great experience. There are trails and one can go on a hiking trip,... More
