Fløibanen is a must for every tourist and visitor to Bergen. Fløibanen is one of Norway’s best-known attractions and the only funicular railway in Norway.

We are open daily all year round from early morning to 23.00.

There are lots of reasons to include Fløibanen and Fløyen in your programme:

A trip on Fløibanen is an adventure in itself. The journey takes 5–8 minutes and brings visitors to the summit of Fløyen (320 m above sea level) with its fantastic views over Bergen. View webcam.

The top of Fløyen boasts beautiful countryside with a wide choice of walks of all lengths. There are waymarked paths and a hiking map is available.

At the top of Mount Fløyen you can rent a Mountain bike or join an organized Hiking Tour from June – August.

Fløibanen’s lower station is just 150 m from Fisketorget – the fish market – and Bryggen wharf. There is plenty of space for coaches to set down and pick up passengers at the lower station. There is no need to book in advance as each of Fløibanen’s carriages can carry 80 passengers.

Two carriages, each with a capacity of 80, run continuously, so waiting time is minimal even at times of high demand.

Fløien Folkerestaurant at the summit is a good option for lunch or dinner, both for groups and individuals.

Fløistuen Shop and Café is available for souvenirs and delicious pastries, which you can enjoy there or take away.

Hiking at Mount Fløyen

Groups of 10 or more can book a guided walking tour of Fløyen.
This is an excellent walk suitable for most people – all you need is a good pair of walking shoes. The walk is on paths through easy terrain, and takes in forests, mountains, idyllic small lakes and beautiful views. Along the way you’ll learn about local history, the Norwegian hiking tradition, fairy tales, goblins and trolls. The walk lasts approximately two hours and starts from the upper station.
An excellent opportunity to get to know Fløyen and Bergen better!
You will be given a bottle of refreshing spring water to take with you, and the walk finishes with coffee and a light snack by the campfire.

The walking tour can be booked in English or Norwegian, with other languages by request. The walk can be booked from May to September, at least two weeks in advance, by contacting info@floyen.no. Two weeks’ notice of cancellation is required.

Prices: adult NOK 350, child NOK 300. Tickets for Fløibanen not included.
