This is a must for hiking lovers. The whole trail is well marked by intermittent posts. We went on a sunny day. It was picturesque. We could see the Folgefonna glacier while walking. It's a long walk (13 km) so we started early. The calmness of the route is really enjoyable. We preferred to start from Ulriken and reached Fløyen... More

A must for who love hiking and nature, the trail starts from the top of the mount Ulriken; you can reach the top of Ulriken from the city hospital that your can reach with the public bus with a well marked path, more or less at the middle of the path you will chose if continue with the path on...

The hike was amazing! Both funicular rides were beautiful. The cafe at Ulriken packed a great lunch. I had hard time finding the starting place for my trail but the workers at the top were all very kind and easily showed me where to go. Be sure to check the signs and follow the trail markers along the way. I... More

We started at Mt Ulriken and walked for around 7 hours to reach Mt Floyen. You can find the path easily by following the signage or the rock tower. The path was not very steep except one or two point you need to climb or go down with 4 limbs. Waterproof hiking shoes were necessary as there was quite a... More

The hike brings you through what might as well be another dimension in the mountains above Bergen. There you can see, on a clear day, far into the distance. You'll encounter bodies of fresh water that seem to defy physics and great expanses of inhospitable, but terribly beautiful rolling grasses, stones and moss. The hike is rocky and sometimes a...

Wow - what an amazing hike. We went from Floyen to Ulriken and it took us 5 hours with very few stops. Stunning scenery. Mostly signposted or obvious which way to go as its a popular route with lots of locals running / hiking. Tough terrain - waterproof hiking boots recommended. Also v windy at times. No mountains open so... More

This is a must when visiting family and friendsin Bergen. Have done this hike 8-10 times now! The hike is a must for outdoors people on a sunny day. The views over the city is fantastic and the award after 4-5 hours of hiking is a glass of beer or wine at Fløyen Restaurant.

I enjoyed this hike so much I did it on the second day of my trip and on the last day! I started from a trail from Munkebotn road and went all the way up to Floyen then to Ulriken, it took me 6 hours. BUT if you take the Funicular up to Floyen, and then hike to Ulriken it... More

I am giving this a poor rating because I want people to look at this before they head out. We actually did not get to complete this hike and I believe that our guardian angels were with us that day. First of all, I live in Colorado and hike often but this was something else. Not strenuous, but I'll explain...... More
