Take the funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen, where you can have fun at the playground, play in the Troll Forest and walk exciting nature trails. If you are in Bergen, visiting Fløyen (320 m.a.s.l.) is an absolute must! A trip on the Fløibanen funicular is a great experience, which has been transporting people up the mountain for more than 100 years. The trip starts in the heart of Bergen city centre and takes you to the top in approx. 6 minutes. You will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of the city, fjord and mountains.
When you arrive at Fløyen, you may notice the smell of freshly baked pastry. The charming Fløistuen shop and café offers pastries, ice cream, hot and cold drinks, as well as souvenirs and gifts. At Fløien Folkerestaurant at the upper station, you can enjoy a better meal accompanied by the city’s finest view.
Children can have fun at the large playground or try an exciting obstacle course in the forest. Take a walk through the mysterious Troll Forest if you dare… In the summer, you can paddle a canoe on the idyllic Lake Skomakerdiket (for free). If you want a little more speed and excitement, you can rent a mountain bike and stop at fantastic viewpoints along the way. If you want to spend the night in unique accommodation, you can book “Konglen” and sleep between the treetops at the top of the mountain.
Mount Fløyen is also a perfect starting point for hiking, offering shorter and longer routes with options for wheelchair users, strollers, young people and the elderly. In other words, Fløyen has roads and hiking trails suitable for everyone!
Feel free to take the 10-minute walk from Fløibanen’s upper station to Lake Skomakerdiket where you will find Skomakerstuen Café. You can enjoy “svele” (traditional thick pancakes from Western Norway) and a drink while admiring the beautiful view of the lake.
PS: If you visit Fløyen in the summer, you need to greet the cuddly and slightly mischievous Fløyen goats.
