Try to find a dry spell to do this hike. We tried it in July but the weather was showery and this restricted the views at times. Also, the bogs and streams were more of a challenge than on a dry day. However, you have...More

This really is a "don't know" for me. The time I visited Bergen and wanted to do this attraction it was closed as it was too windy. What a shame as I suspect that the views would be as spectacular as they were from the...More

This is an outstanding hike and if you're ready for a challenge I'd highly recommend it. I started off the morning feeling a little guilty since I ended up taking the cable car to the top of Mt. Ulriken. Getting to the trail head took...More

Good for blue sky day. Birds eye view of Bergen is exceptional. Trails are good for up or down. However, it is challenging height elevation to gain. The gondola cold help.

Well worth your time. This is nice hike and an excellent afternoon activity. Bring plenty of water and something to eat - it's nice to stop halfway through for lunch.

This hike, while an amazing experience, one that I can now look back on and say I'm glad I did, is not by any means an easy hike. My husband and I are decent hikers, and this tested both my physical and emotional limits. When...More

Start with climb up to Mount Ulriken, have a coffee break and than enjoy beautiful trail with scenic views. You will end in the city centre of Bergen.

The Floibanen furnicular leaves from just behind Bryggen area (near McDonald's and Starbucks) for 45kr one-way. Once at the top of Floyen, you can choose your walk from there, no need to register. Most walks are well signed... More

You can go any time of year, but in the winter the sunlight lasts shorter, and IT can be mighty cold. Wear wind jackets and really warm clothes, gloves and wool mittens. Be prepared! But winter can be even nicer than summer... More

Like the others are saying, there might be snow but you're more likely to encounter rain and freezing winds. The weather is generally terrible in November. One thing you don't want to be doing is attempt to walk across if... More
