Share Our World: Mount Ulriken with cable car ride

in Wednesday Walk7 days ago

I am so excited to start sharing my pictures and experiences in Norway with you. After HiveFest in Amsterdam @jarvie and I flew to Bergen, Norway where we met our sister-in-law, Jodi and her best friend Kimberly.

Our first activity was to hike gorgeous Mount Ulriken!

To get to the top of the mountain we took the Ulriken cable car up 2109 feet (643 meters). I had been on a gondola or cable car one other time in 2014 in Jackson, Wyoming. It was great!

We met a nice girl with a yoga mat that was going to the top of the mountain to hike a little and relax in nature.

It costs NOK $345.00 which is $34 USD and well worth it for the awesome views and time saved from the hiking up or down the mountain.

We spent at least 3 hours on the mountain eating and exploring.

Here is the view from the top of the cable car looking out to Bergen. The city center is 3 miles away. You can even see a cruise ship in the harbor.

Before going on our hike we got lunch at the Skyskraperen Restaurant. I got fish soup. I wanted to get as much fish as I could while we were next to the ocean- or the Norwegian Sea to be exact.

The views from the top were amazing!

Here we are at the start of the hike.

The land was a beautiful burnt yellow, orange color.

with many little lakes

and some houses. We wondered how they got the materials up to build the houses and how people lived in them.

This is looking back toward the restaurant (which is by the tower) and Bergen




There you have a wonderful walk this Wednesday in the highest of the Bergen's 7 mountains, Mount Ulriken.

Thanks so much @malos10 So glad you are getting out and exploring more!

WOW those views are amazing

But the thought of riding the gondola/Cable car does freak me out due to a past experience, but to see those views perhaps I could force myself to di it

Thanks for joining the Wednesday Walk :)

Thanks Jay. It was so beautiful. It was a pretty quick ride. I bet you could do it. Hope your wife is doing well.

Nice! You visited Norway, hope You had amazing time there. Did You see any Northern Lights? Did You travel north? I hope You will share more shots and stories from that trip :).

Yes! I made it. A dream for so long. We spent a week there and it was wonderful. We did not get north, that will have to be another trip. I did love it and have a lot of great posts coming up!

What a place… wow, the views. So stunning.

Why did the hospital send all the nurses to art school?
So they could learn to draw blood.

Nature in Norway is amazing!
I have some thoughts about driving to Northern Norway next summer.

Agreed! You should. I would love to see more of it, through your posts.

Looks awesome, I'd love to go there one day!

Thanks. It has been a dream for so many years. There are so many great pictures to come.

Wow that looks like such a gorgeous place!

I've always wanted to go up into the Nordic Circle (during peak summer though...) and you guys got the timing right too by the looks of that beautiful sunny day!

I'm so jealous that you were able to go to Hive fest!!!

Maybe we'll have one near Australia one day, or I might be rich enough to go to another European one in the future...

Who knows, but fingers crossed!

Hi @chocolatescorpi I hope there is a HiveFest close to Australia too. I really want to visit your country! Yes, we had incredible weather, sunny everyday except one which had fog and some rain in the morning! It was amazing.

Well if you ever do come to Australia Sara- HiveFest or not, you are more than welcome to come and camp at mine in Melbourne!

And you will get a whole range of seasons here- all in one day! 🤣 🙄
