Mountain view in Norway

This was the final port of call on our cruise. An interesting cable car ride and some wonderful views of Bergen and the mountain scenery around.

Having taken the 2/3 bus from near the fish market, we took the steepest path from the base cable car station to the top as we wanted to get the view asap. There appeared to be quite a lot of difference in the difficulty of the walks to the top and the red route requires sturdy footwear (especially for the... More

I love the top of this mountain. the city view of Bergen is amazing at top. its the highest mountain in bergen and you can come down by cable car if your so tired. but good to challenge yourself with a hike..

This is another must do and see if visiting Bergen. The first time I went the weather was bad, really misty which meant the view at the top wasn't good. The second time I visited I decided I must go again as the sun was shining and hopefully the view would be better. The cable car is a bit shaky... More

Took the toughest way uphill and was blessed with fantastic weather and view on the top. Nice restaurant with 360 degrees view, really good food and a glass of wine. Been here several times, and you can also take the gondol to the top and walk down if you like, or gondol both ways.

Fantastic view, but make sure it is not foggy. That sort of spoil the view.... Bring hiking shoes as it is nice terrain for a walk innland from the top.

This maybe combine the best of Bergen. After seen the town from "floor level" you can have a great view of Bergen from 643 above sea level. Remember good footwear if you are fitted to walk all the way up/down (recomended).

Drop the funicular, hike up the mountainside. Tracks are obvious, lots of other hikers ususally. Just follow the trail in the forest behind the cable car station. A bit steep at the top, but that just feels great. Better not walk up while icy though!

Absolutely awesome spectacular view of Bergen! A bus takes you to the cable car station, then you ascend in a comfortable car to the peak. Once there, you may view the city from the comfortable platform outside the restaurant. Or you may hike the area to get close up to nature and see even more scenery. This does not take... More
