We got there in the evening and we had visited Mount Floyen the day before. The experience is different. From here you can see the whole region, with so many islands...One can hike some of the many trails but we only walked around and enjoyed the view. After 18:30 the bus does not go directly to the center so we... More

We went on the cable car and it was a nice ride. Unfortunately, it was cloudy most of the way up so we couldn't see much. At the very top, we could see the landscape but not the town. I suggest going on a clear, warm day.

I guess if you go in holiday season you should expect lines and a wait. However 2 hrs to get from the entrance door to the top was a lot more than I bargained for. The view itself is lovely and I am sure would be great to stay and enjoy, however with the wait at the bottom there was... More

I recommend to take the cable car to the top and walk back, or opposite if you need exercise. Its lovely and stunning view from the top and really worth a visit if you come to this city in a not rainy day.

We arrived about 11:30 there was a long queue! If we had known it would take over an hour we wouldn't have bothered as we had been up Floybanen which is better organised. We had bought tickets by then. The cable cars are often dispatched with less than full occupancy which results in longer delays. At the top there is... More

Nice area to hike with a view over Bergen and surrounding. Put on your hiking shoes and bring water. On top top there is a lift and restaurant

If you ask people to compare Mount Floyen and Mount Urlriken , you will get different answers because you cannot really compare apple with orange. The walk on Mount Urliken is more of a rugged beauty compare with the forests trails and lakes on Mount Floyen. It is very exposed with no shade at all , and the trails are... More

We got the tickets from the tourism office. We took the bus that goes with the tour. In our view this was better than making our way there by public transport. The bus leaves from the centre of town and is every hour. Once there, don't waste time and just go straight to the cable car. Get a spot by... More
