Private guided panoramic hike with fine dining lunch

Mt. Ulriken

This private guided tour on Mt. Ulriken offers experiences that combine nature and culture with culinary delights. Since 1961, the Ulriken cable car has transported passengers from the city to the high mountain. With the new cable car, it takes 6 minutes to travel to the real high mountain nature. The hike offers panoramic views of the city, fjords, and landscape, as well as stories about the mountain and the people who have used it and still use it today. The route we take is off the beaten track with very few hikers. It winds through various landscapes and is therefore very diverse.

The Skyscraper restaurant lives up to its name, located spectacularly at the top of Mt. Ulriken. The culinary experiences at The Skyscraper celebrate Norwegian flavors, with a seasonal menu that changes with the seasons. Inspired by nature, traditions, and the ever-changing weather of the western region.


  • Your guide will meet you at your hotel and take you to the lower station of the Cable car, by taxi.
  • You take the Cable car to the top.
  • At the top, you may use the facilities; go to the bathroom, fill up your water bottle, etc.

  • After the hike your guide bids you fare well, and your three-course lunch with a view awaits.
