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 was clear day when we were on Floyen with Funicular (Floibanen), so it was great to see landscape of whole city of Bergen. Up there is bar and restaurant and you can enjoy view while drinking coffe or eat. Also, great place to take...More

Get there early, the lines from late morning on stretch forever and the outlook gets crowded. The funicular takes you up to a magnificent overlook of the city and the fjords. Don't miss it.

Right in the city centre near the fish market and other visitor attractions is the entrance to the funicular railway. All modern and goes every 15 mins. Very smooth ride and just amazing views from the top in most directions over the city and fjords...More

Visited Mount Floyen with my mama, smooth ride, only few minutes to get up to the hill. Busy place, it has shops and restaurants. Beautiful view city of Bergen.

It was a cloudy day in Bergen but we took the Funicular anyway. Fortunately when we got to the top the clouds did lift somewhat and the views were wonderful. There is a cafe/bar and some walking tracks.

Either taking the Funicular or hiking up Mt. Floyen is a must do. Beautiful view overlooking Bergen and its wharf and looking out to the sea. Loved the goats wandering around freely up on top, too!

I am only reviewing Mt. Floyen since I decided to walk up to the top instead of taking the Funicular. After a continual uphill climb using switchbacks, you reach the top of Mt. Floyen. The view is incredible! There is a gift shop, playground, restaurant,...More

The ride up only takes about 10 minutes you may have to queue at busy times. The walk down can take between 40 mins to an hour depending on route the quick route is very steep and does your knees no good at all .

I've just done it on a Brompton, so yes - it's possible. There's a normal road that goes to the top of the funicular, and from there it's mostly packed gravel tracks. The last section before the absolute summit is pretty... More
