Ulriksbanen Cables, Bergen, Norway

After loving going up the funicular to the Fløyen mountain (320m above sea), a couple of days later we braved the cable car up the Ulriken mountain to an even greater altitude of 643m above sea level.

 

This is a view from the base station up the mountain Ulriken (note that the cable-car pylon in the distance is only about a quarter of the way up to the top). The cable car set up is called the Ulriksbanen. I considered it to be pretty dodgy at the time (heavily swaying, creaking, generally dodgy looking and sounding!) - it wasn't until I got back home that I discovered the Ulriksbanen was closed for 6 months in 2006 for not meeting government safety recommendations!
