Bergen Mount Floyen Excursion Reviews

Taking the funicular is a popular way to reach the top of the marvelous Mount Floyen, from which you can see the historic city. Of course, there are walking trails and footpaths for the adventurous!

We took a short tour of the city by bus, rode the funicular to the top of Mt Floyen, and visited the Hanseatic museum. Some interesting history of Bergen and a great view from the top of the mountain.

Sail Date: September 2018
Cute city - enjoyed the sights, sounds, food and wine. We took the extra train trip to Oslo. Probably would not take the train trip again. Did not feel that it was worth the money.

Booked tickets for the funicular beforehand which meant we didn't have to queue at the ticket office. We went around 10.30 a.m. and there were no queues. However, by the time we left at around midday, the queues had built up considerably. The tickets are easy to book online, so would recommend doing so. However, check the weather forecast first as there is no point going up the mountain if the weather is bad and you won't see anything. Read Less

Road a cable car to the top of their highest mountain for views then explored the city on our own. Beautiful wharfside and gardens abound. Very expensive city for Americans though. A basic lunch was $75 for 2!

Take the funicular to the top of Mt. Floyen is a must. It's a short walk from the port and located in the heart of the city. Great hiking trails, zip line and views at the top

Due to operational requirements were arrived and departed Bergen early 0600-1230. I was off the ship by 0700 and walked to the funicular to go up Mount Floyen. Nothing at the top was open! walked to lake at top and discovered no canoes or kayaks available. Very disappointing after seeing all this in their brochure. Came back down to city and walked around. Most places were still closed and it was time to head back to ship. Read Less
