The fastest zipline in Norway! The zipline on Mt Ulriken, the highest of Bergen’s mountains (643 metres), offers scenic views and an adrenaline rush.
Beware that this attraction is closed until spring 2021, due to Ulriksbanen being closed for upgrades.
This adventure takes place on Mt Ulriken (643 metres), which is the highest of Bergen’s mountains. The zipline offers scenic views and an adrenaline rush. It is not physically demanding, but rather mentally challenging, and you get a great sense of achievement when you reach the end. This is Norway's fastest zipline! It opened in summer 2016.
The zipline starts under the terrace in front of the restaurant on Mt Ulriken, and glides 300 metres in the direction of Mt Fløyen. There are instructors at both ends to ensure you have a safe "flight".
The zipline is 300 metres long.
Meet at the designated time beside the zipline, which is located in front of the restaurant on top of the mountain.
Please ensure you arrive on top of Mt Ulriken before the time you have booked. Note that approx. 15 people can be booked to do the zipline per hour, so there may be some waiting.
If you arrive late, we will try to get you on the zipline as quickly as possible.
Also note that there may be queues for the Ulriken cable car. We would advise you to take a bus from the centre of Bergen 1-2 hours before the time you have booked to ensure that you arrive on time. This will also give you time to enjoy the views from the top of the mountain.
