Having Fun in Bergen: Hiking Mount Floyen (A Photo Essay)

with 5 Comments

Mount Floyen is one of those places where you can take a deep breath and the whole world becomes a happier place. On our 3rd day in Bergen we took the funicular up the Mount Floyen, where we enjoyed some amazing views over the city and hiked through the forest. It was a cloud covered day, but that didn’t stop many of the tourists from forming a long, long cue in front of both funicular stations (up and down the mountain). However, once we decided to hike through the forest and to the lake, we hardly spotted any people anymore. The lake offers free canoeing and at the funicular station you can ask for a treasure map and let the adventure begin. We had tons of fun, but we also relaxed and we can’t recommend enough a few hours of hiking on Mount Floyen when you visit Bergen
