The tour between Mount Ulriken and Mount Fløyen is one of the the most popular tours in Bergen. Beautiful views of Bergen and the region.
You can start and end your trip by taking Ulriken Cable Car or Fløibanen funicular. Between these two beautiful mountains you can see the fjords and islands around Bergen. On a clear day you can enjoy the view to Folgefonna glacier.
If you want to walk up Mount Ulriken, you can take bus nr 12 to Montana. Follow the signs to Montana Youth Hostel. Turn right just before the hostel and across the parking place you will see the gravel road which is the start point. Follow the road for about 10 minutes. At the end you will have several options up to Ulriken. The quickest (and steepest) is to follow the signs "Ulriken opp". This is the most popular track. If you want a longer and more gentle climb, keep right after about 10 minutes after the gravel road is finished. (Towards Nattlandsfjellet og Sedalen).
Alternatively you can take any buss which goes to the hospital. From the hospital it is a 10 minute walk up to Ulriken Cable car. From there you can take the Cable car to the top or walk “underneath” it. The track starts just to the right of the entrance and will meet up with the track from Montana after about 20 minutes. (You will see the parking lot on your right, across the little bridge.)
The hike across Vidden is well marked and is very popular amongst locals. The last 1-1,5 hours is on gravel road coming up to Mount Rundemann. From there you will start seeing the view of the city.
15 minutes before Mount Fløyen you can stop at Brushytten and enjoy a Norwegian waffle. Open every Sunday between 11-16 the whole year.
Season: The hike takes about 5 hours and can be done the whole year, but we recommend between May and October, unless you are skiing across!
