Tour description

You start your experience from Bergen center by stepping onto the Ulriken Express bus, which takes you directly to the newly renovated Ulriken cable car station. The ride by gondola up to the top of Ulriken offers fantastic views of a wonderful landscape in true mountain nature. The spacious cable cars are comfortable and the views overlooking Bergen are truly awsome. 

Once you reach the top you are 643 meters above sea level and your table at Skyskraperen Restaurant will be ready. Here you can enjoy a tasteful experience sending your thoughts back to the Viking age and their feasts. In wonderful surroundings overlooking Bergen, mountains, and fjords you will enjoy a selection of flavors based on local produce from the fjord and coast. The meal will be accompanied by locally produced beer or cider, while the kids will be treated to a local juice.
