Ulriken Bergen, Hordaland, Norway

Mountain cable car

One of the best ways to see the city of Bergen on the Norwegian coast is from one of the many mountains which surrounds it. You don't have to walk to the top of this one, Ulriken, though, as there's a cable car which will do all the hard work for you.

There's a little red cab and a little yellow one and they pass each other on the route. When you get to the top there's a restaurant and the local TV mast, but more importantly some great views.

We were there last week and, even though we were into April, there was still a bit of snow on the ground.
