Owner description: Fløyen is a must do while in Bergen. Fløibanen, the funicular brings you up the hillside, from Bergen city centre to the top of the mountain in 6 minutes. At Mount Fløyen you will find beautiful views of Bergen, the nearby islands, fjords and mountains surrounding Bergen. Fløyen is a great destination for hiking, mountain biking and soft adventures. We are surrounded by hillsides, mountains, forests, nice little lakes and numerous trails. We offer daily guided hikes “Hiking Mount Fløyen" and Mountain bike rental from mid June until mid August. We love children, and the children love Fløyen. Let the kids explore our playground, Fløysletten climbing playground, the Troll forest. Try out canoe paddling at lake Skomakerdiket (mid June - mid August), feel the adrenalin rush in FløyenKids ziplinepark and get at kiss from our lovely goats at Fløyen. Fløistuen shop and cafè have souvenirs, perfect gifts and memories from Bergen and Norway. We offer local food as “Fløyenbollen", the cinnamon-bun and our organic soup “Fløyensuppen". Fløien Folkerestaurant is open daily from May until September.

“a great view”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Arrive in bergen on holland america fjord cruise of norway the weather was good for
sightseeing, clear and sunny,but not to hot. we walked from the ship to the town centre and
open air fish market, the walk there takes about 20 mins with plenty to see on the way, shops
sailing and fishing ships.The fish market in large but most of the stalls selling the same
types of fish, which you can purchase and eat on the tables there. We then went to the
funicular railway which takes you to the top of mount floyen. It was about an hour wait to get
on the car, as there is only two in opperation sharing the same track.The cost for a single
journey to the top for two persons was about £8.50 . Be warned do not attempt to walk up the
mountain by the footpath unless you are extremly fit , mad or a bit of both as we walked down
which in great for scenery but took us 45mins and even going down hill was tiring.great views from the top shops and food and drink available well worth the wait about a 3 min ride up no waiting forthe return by car. if you puchase single uo, you can get a downhill tkt from machines provided at entrance to car station well worth the visit

This is the best place to visit if you want to eat a norwegian waffel, drink a beer and look at the fabolous view! Not expensive "train" but the restaurant have tourist prices

“enjoy Bergen from Mount Floyen”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Take the funicular. When you arrive, have a spectacular view of Bergen from the platform. Sip a beer and then descend the Mount Floyen on foot slowly. Take pictures at each corner while your heart beats.
Of course, this lovely trip should be made in good weather!

enjoyed the ride up in the funicular and went for a 10km walk at the top. we used the guidebook which described a few walks and chose the most suitable. it took about 3.5h and had some great views but steep inclines.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

The fare was quite reasonably priced and the cars were clean, easy to enter, and comfortable. Views on the way up were remarkable and the angle of travel gave a weird and interesting perspective on the journey.
At the top there are a few shops, but the main thing are the views - Bergen and its surrounding areas are laid out before you in one of the most spectacular vistas that you will ever see.
Don't miss it - if you've only got time to do one thing in Bergen - make it this one.
