The hike up to the viewpoint on top mount Ulriken is totally worth it even on a rainy day. It affords you good views of bergen all the way to the top and back down.

A great hike

If you are a hiker, you could choose to visit Ulriken.
There are different routes to the top, but I prefer the one with the newly done steps. They were done a couple of years ago by sherpas, and it's amazing to look at the construction of these rocks and imagining how they were build. From the top its a spectacular view, and in clear weather it's one of the best places to be in Bergen.

From here you can walk to Fløyen, or just go down again, and have a well deserved meal in the city center.

Note that this is quite an exhausting trip, so you should either have lots of time, or be in good shape.
It takes about an hour in good tempo to the top. Can be done in 45 minutes if you are a fast walker, even up hills, but that's not recommendable. Rather take your time and enjoy the beautiful nature and the views along the way.

Great view from the top

Nice ride up the cable car, lovely locals take the trip with their dogs to walk the many tracks in the mountains. Very cold up the top during winter, so be sure to take many layers. The cafe wasn't open when we went, but the view from the cafe balcony was definitely worth sitting there anyway! Plenty of walking trails for those who want to make a day of it. You can also walk up or down the stairs at the side of the mountain if you don't fancy a cable car ride!

Amazing

Lovely ride in the cable car to the top where there was thick snow. Amazing views and space to walk around. There is a small shop which sold hot drinks, main cafe was closed. Lots of people walked up and down but you need the correct clothing and shoes. A definite must do in Bergen. We walked back to town very easy. Very well organised.

Although we didn't climb it and we took the cableway to the top of the mountain, we vere out of breath - the views vere amazing! I have never seen such a beautiful scenery before. We walked the surroundings for a very long time and waited for he sunset. I have the fondest memories of this place.

Tip for people who are looking to hike this, do not follow the directions on google maps. It will take to an off the beaten path type way. Seach Ulriken Car starting point. From there you will be able to see the different advised routes to take to the top. There should however be more signs directing hikers towards the correct trail. We hiked for 2hrs and only saw 1 sign.
