Owner description: 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.

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".

Great views from the top

We took the funicular both days. IF you can get the front seat then the views are great as the funicular moves up.
Weather id not co-operate and it was rainy/misty. But still it was a great view from top. I Can only imagine how pretty it would have been in the sun.

There is a restaurant and a gift shop on top. Nice place to grab a quick snack/dessert and a drink.
For children there is a playground and trolls for that photo opportunity.

We visited in March and there were no lines.

A very pleasant way to ride to Mount Fløyen and it’s spectacular views. We walked back down, which is about 2.5 km and very easy - though watch if snowy. This way you get to go through all the little backalleys and see the pretty clapperboard houses.

A beautiful and easy walk from bottom to top, accessible for most fitness levels. The only issue we had was the ice, but to be fair we went in winter. Get some kleats for your shoes if you're concerned. The view from the top is great, and a lot of people were up there cross country skiing.
