Ulriken, Bergen


One of the two carts

The day after our first tour around Bergen we decided to go up another of Bergen’s seven mountains, Ulriken. This is a taller mountain with it’s 643 meters above sea level.

To get up we took the cable carts that are called Perle and Bruse. The weather was a little cloudy, but quite good.

When we got to the top we had lunch at the lovely restaurant that serves local food. If I wasn’t driving I would have tried one of the local beer.

As we sat eating the wind started acting up and there was quite the amount of fog comming in a long with rain.

So when we were going down the cable carts was stopped due to the wind. We had to wait for about two hours for the wind to have calmed down enough for it to be safe for us to take it down again.

It wasn’t the best trip down from there I’ve had. Dangling in the cart not being able to see much. But it was completely safe and we where happy to come down.

    Glad the view was better going up! πŸ˜€ We went up part of Ben Nevis in a cable car – fine going up and dreadful weather coming down. Just glad to touch ground again!
