Hike, or take the cable car, up to Fløyen, the best view of Bergen and enjoy the nice amenities at the top. Enjoy the view for as long as you would like before heading back down to the city in just minutes.
Many choose to take the historic cable car to the top and enjoy a scenic walk back down through the forest. Be aware that demand can be high for the cable car and therefore you may need to wait in a line for some time.
From the top of Fløyen, a large network of trails head further into the forest, including the trail heading to Blåmannen. Enjoy day hikes in the surrounding mountains, or bring gear for camping overnight, the adventures are endless!
Fløibanen has the easiest access to Fløyen and the starting point. There’s nothing else like this cable car in the entire country, plus it is the easiest way to access Fløyen. The station is located 150 meters from Fisketorget, the fish market, and Bryggen wharf on Vetrlidsallmenningen. The total journey takes about 5 to 8 minutes. Check here for prices and departures.
The switch-back trail starts a few blocks away from the idyllic “Bryggen” in Bergen and takes you through the charming neighborhoods and up into the forest. The trail will zig-zag and few times before reaching the top of the viewpoint.
Follow the same trail on the way down or return on the cable car.
