If you only can choose one thing to do in Bergen, choose Ulriken. It is a mountain with a spectacular view. The trip up is exciting and fun. It cost kr 80 for one way and kr 145 for both ways. You can combine it with a nice hiking trip over to Fløyen if you have the time. On the top of Ulriken you'll find an overpriced restaurant.

We found this less easy to reach on foot than the Mount Floyen Funicular, but with ever more spectacular views. A pleasant (if expensive) restaurant awaits at the top, along with a small shop. Go on a clear day!

If you are in moderate shape, this is really worth the trek. The views from mid-way up to the very top are unrivalled and best appreciated from the trail - not from the viewing platform at the top. The most breathtaking scenes are behind the city and fjord views back to the ridge line into the wilderness, which is peppered with beautiful mountain ponds.

We took the no. 2 bus from in front of the tourism centre (you pay for the ticket on the bus - 27 NOK) and got off at the hospital, walking along the overpass and just asked people for directions to the easier trailhead. Everyone helped us get there, and it was quiet easy to find.

There are two ways up:
1) Very steep trail that follows the tramline
2) Easier and more winding, but still a challenge

Definitely wear hiking or running shoes and bring appropriate clothing for changing weather, along with a bottle or two of water and a camera.

It takes locals an hour to go up and visitors longer... :) We took the tram down after soaking up the views for some time.

Well worth it and a must-do when you're visiting Bergen.

We did both Mount Floyen an mount Ulriken on the same day.
Mount Floyen and funicular are OK, but the view from mount Ulriken is WOW...
Definitely worth the bus-trip there.

Can walk or take the cable car, but the trek is definitely worth it! Breathtaking views all the way up, fantastic restaurant at the top, this should be on your list of things to do in this beautiful city!
