  • We bought tickets in the heart of the city, and drove with the bus up to the cable car. There was pretty long queue that day when the weather was really nice to come up on the mountain and see the beautiful views! We stood in line about my 30-45, however, with the movement all the time so it meant nothing. One can look out over the city from the lift, and it doesn't take long before you're on top. There are plenty of places to sit down with the picnic basket or at their cafe-a super place! It is probably best to take up there on a day of sunshine, otherwise it may be difficult to view the city from the top of the mountain!

  • Try to find a dry spell to do this hike. We tried it in July but the weather was showery and this restricted the views at times. Also, the bogs and streams were more of a challenge than on a dry day. ...  more »

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
