Rising imposingly above Bergen, Ulriken stands as the highest of the seven mountains ringing the city. Make your way to the top, 643 m (2,110 ft) above sea level, for a sweeping view over the city, its harbor, and the surrounding mountains. Ascend via the network of rugged mountain trails or by taking the cable car that runs from the city center to the peak. Alternatively, hop aboard a shuttle bus from Bergen, which departs from the city's tourist information office. Once you arrive at the top, take advantage of the free telescopes to get a closer view of the landscape.

If you want the best view of the city and onwards to Sotra and the coast line, Ulriken is the place to go. Nice cafe / restaurant at the summit. more »
Best nature experience at the highest mountain top in Bergen. The hike up is medium advanced and takes around 1 hour. Stairs and cable car available. Restaurant on top and a spectacular view. Bring warm clothes in winter time. Weather can surprise you.
Don't veer too far from the path. Stared frostbite in the face, but was still a great hike.. Save mountain rescues phone number just in case 😂
