Hikes from Mount Ulriken.

Mount Ulriken is also a good starting point for hikes.

Hiking from Mount Ulriken to Mount Floyen
A popular, but long and quite hard hike, is to Mount Floyen and it takes approx. 5 hours to walk. Mount Ulriken is higher than Mount Floyen, but it is a lot of “ups and downs” between these two mountains. As always, bring a map.

Hiking from Mount Ulriken to Turnerhytten Mountain Cabin
This is a nice and popular return hike from the Ulriken summit to one of the public-open mountain cabins at Mount Ulriken. The cabin has a kiosk, I think it is open in the weekends in the summer season. As always, bring a map.

Hiking from Mount Ulriken via Isdalen and Fjellveien to Center of Bergen
Most of this hike is either flat or downhill. As always, bring a map.

How to get to the Mount Ulriken

The first option is by walking, this is really the hard way. The second option is to take the shuttle bus from the tourist information (in the center of Bergen) to the Mount Ulriken cable car lower station and walk from there. This walk is really hard. The third and easiest option is to take the shuttle bus and continue by the cable car to the top.

If you want some quite easy exercise, you can walk down from the mountain and then join the shuttle bus.

The Ulriken Cable Car is also known as ‘Ulriksbanen’ in Norwegian language.
