We were fortunate to have great weather. A nice cable ride to the top is rewarded with gorgeous views in all directions. Our son also loved the zip line (one of fastest in Europe). This is another must do in Bergen. Can easily grab a bus to get there and back. Highly recommend.

After finding out that the tourist cable car up the mountain was closed due to inclement weather, we decided to tough it out and hike to the top instead. What could happen, right? We were both decked out in our gore-tex jackets and sneakers with a 4 pack of jam donuts and some (unintentionally) fizzy water. It was 1 degree... More

As it's out of season the Ulriken shuttle bus wasn't running but We found it easy enough to catch a local bus from the city centre on either the No.2, 3 or 12 bus (get off at the hospital stop) which run about every 5 minutes. Then it's a short uphill walk to the cable car station. We were lucky... More

We took the cable car up and down as it was rainy and my four year old is clumsy. We had a small hike and got some lunch. There is a little play bit at the top and toilets

Decided to see Mount Ulriken today as the sky was blue first thing. Walked up from our apartment (Jorgen Moes Gate) in Bergen instead of taking the bus. A steady climb up to the hospital but not too bad for the children (9,6). On arrival to the cable car the advice we took was that the light snow on high... More

I hiked up to Ulriken from Montana and at some point there was a junction to take either the blue (moderate) or the green (easy). I chose the blue and was challenged by a steep climb, but the more gratifying was the view from Ulriken. Definitely a must for each Bergen visitor is to at least enjoyed the view from... More

This was one of the excursions that you had to pay extra for on the Viking Star. It was not that much extra and it included a city tour of Bergen by bus. The gondola station is just a little way out of the city center. You ride up the mountain for about 10 minutes or less and that puts... More

I visited Bergen and Ulriken in the end of January. We were planning to hike our way up the Ulriken and then take the lift back down, but surprise-surprise the lift turned out to be closed for some technical reasons (though the weather was quiet and nice...), we asked about it just in case from the Tourist info, too, before...
