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.

it's worth the wait if there is a line (the line was long, but moved very quickly). It's a fantastic view, and the best part of Bergen.

We were very lucky to have a clear and dry day in Bergen so the trip to the top was well worth it. Spectacular view over Bergen and the archipelago. There are also a large number of walking paths/hikes at Fløyen, and we did one of the shorter ones.

We were unlucky (?) to visit Bergen when the weather was poor. Although it wasn't raining when we took the funicular the views from the top were not great due to low cloud and poor visibility. The trip was for me underwhelming although on a bright sunny day it might have been quite different.

It was a sunny Wednesday when we decided to go up to Mount Fløyen, it was 10am and there were over 100 people waiting at the Fløibanen lower station for the Funicular to the top. It was 80NOK return or 40NOK single and took just over 5 minutes to get to Fløyen .

We got the funicular one way and hiked down back into the city which took us over one hour although we were not rushing and stopped many times at vantage points.

At the top the view of Bergen is simply spectacular and was all the better for having good weather on our visit. Once in Fløyen there are places to eat or just take in the stunning views of Bergen below,

Superb panoramic view of the famous harbor area, but also the distant mountains. Price of the funicular was reasonable. If we had more time, would have liked to hike up and down instead ... a good moderately strenuous hike I think. They said it takes about 40 minutes down ... so probably 1.5-2 hrs up?

On top of Mount Floyen, there are a bunch of light hiking paths in the woods, as well as a couple/few small lakes. One lake had canoes that you could take out for free, as well as a grilling area. Would probably be nice to make a day of it ... bring a picnic lunch up, or even stuff for grilling.
