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.

Ideally, choose a good weather day (be flexible with your scheduling in Bergen - it rains.). The funicular is a short ride and offers a great spot at the top for photos. If you are fit, have a few hours and the weather is good,mi...More

Funicular trip gave us 3 bonuses. Amazing view of Bergen, good exercise - walking tour to the summit of the second highest city mountain Rundemanen, and tasty food in Folkerestaurant at the top of the mountain Floien.

If you are lucky to have sunny weather you might be able to see the fjords in the distance. Even if you are not so lucky the view is nice. And you can take a stroll through the woods.

We went here after our cable car tour was closed for high winds. So we probably encountered all the funicular and all the cable car traffic. The Funicular was jam packed, but the ride is short. At the top the scenery is beautiful and there...More

Easy to book and ride. The walks are amazing, gravelled wide tracks (solid green line on the map). The tracks are a lot harder though....rocky, boggy, boardwalks too. So choose carefully

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

It's a very easy walk from the cruise terminal into Bergen and easy to find when you get there.

Floyen takes about 5 mins max to get to top. There is a good restaurant at the top which would provide a good meal- I would suggest booking. It is possible to walk to top of Ulriken from Floyen but it is a definite hike... More
