Mt. Floyen (Floyfjellet) Tours

star-5
2 Reviews
Mt. Floyen (Floyfjellet)
Mount Fløyen (Fløyfjellet) towers 1,310 feet (399 meters) over Bergen and offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding landscape from its summit. A popular hiking destination, the mountain features a funicular railway and a network of scenic walking and biking trails that run throughout the area. 

The Basics
Ride the Fløibanen funicular railway, a thrilling 8-minute journey from Bryggen harbor to a lookout point 3,280 feet (one kilometer) from the summit, or explore the mountain’s network of marked trails for views of the surrounding fjords, islands, and hills. Mount Fløyen is also home to the Fløyen Folk Restaurant (Fløien Folkerestaurant), where regular folk music concerts are held in the summer months, as well as a café, shop and children’s playground.

Outdoor activities such as hiking and mountain biking tours are a good way to experience Mount Fløyen and take in views from its many trails. Guided tours can accommodate all skill levels and ensure visitors' safety and security. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Mount Fløyen is a must-see for nature lovers and first-time visitors to Bergen. 
  • The Fløistuen Café, Fløien Folkerestaurant, and Brushytten cabin offer food and drink for purchase. Picnic huts are available for travelers to enjoy their packed lunches.
  • The Fløibanen funicular railway is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, and elevators also offer easy access to the upper and lower funicular stations. 
  • Visitors can buy tickets for the Fløibanen funicular in advance, but there is no need to make reservations for a time slot. 

How to Get There
Mount Fløyen lies just outside of the city of Bergen, Norway. The Fløibanen funicular’s lower station is located just 500 feet (150 meters) from Fisketorget (the fish market) and Bryggen Wharf in downtown Bergen. Guided tours typically provide round-trip transportation, including a ride on the funicular railway. 

When to Get There
You can experience Mount Fløyen year-round. Sledding is a popular winter activity, while in summer you can hike, zipline, canoe, and mountain bike in the area. Summer visitors should also keep a lookout for cashmere goats that live on the mountain and help trim the weeds.

Activities for Kids at Mount Fløyen
Children will love exploring the Troll Forest, where they can hike at their own pace and discover trolls hiding among the trees. The mountain also boasts one of Bergen’s best playgrounds, where kids can run and climb on a variety of structures. Easy stroller access on and off the funicular makes Mount Fløyen a great activity for families with young kids.
