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.

The two hiking trails range from medium weight (length of about 4km at moderate gradient in about 2h can be made at a leisurely pace) to challenging (about 1-2km stretch, at strong incline, mainly Scherpa stairs, can be created in about 40min). The view above is phenomenal and, in my eyes, a must when you are in Bergen. To relax, you can sit up to the restaurant. Staff were very friendly.
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 😂
