Fantastic view, great exercise. It's a tough old trek to the top but definitely worth it when you get to the top.... There's a cable car up if you don't fancy the challenge. One of the better experiences

I enjoyed the ride in Ulriken Cable Car but I think there was lack of signs to show where exactly it was. Once I got off the bus I was not quite sure where exactly to go, but just followed the road that was going...More

Ulriken is the highest of 7 mountains that surround Bergen. We visited Fløyen during the day, very busy with tourists, long queues - the top resort area had a lot of hustle/bustle, which is great but very touristy. Benefit is it it walking distance if...More

You buy at the entrance. If there are a lot of visitors you might have to wait a little but it won't be a long wait. Enjoy your trip.

If it stops in the middle and you get off, you might want to know how to grow a set of wings quickly so unless you are super girl or man please wait to get to the top.

I think it might be difficult for her. If my memory serves me correctly there are stairs to get up to the cable car. Once on top of Ulriken there are more stairs and some pavement, but lots of uneven terrain. Good luck
