This applies to everyone over the age of four.
Children up to the age of three can travel free with an adult with a valid ticket.
The QR code ticket is scanned at the access gate from a printout or a mobile phone

number, if you selected this option. Tickets with a reference number can only be
picked up during the ticket booth’s opening hours. For opening hours, see

The tickets are only valid for the date you have ordered the tickets for and must be
used on this date. Unused tickets will not be refunded.
The validity date is stated on the tickets.
It is important that tickets are treated as valuable documents.
A fine of NOK 750 may be imposed for invalid, lost or misused tickets, according to
Fløibanen AS’s terms and conditions for transport.

3. Making an order:


When you have correctly completed an online payment, you will receive a receipt by
email. The receipt will contain the QR code tickets and all the details about your
purchase, and it must be brought along to the Fløibanen funicular. If you have
selected a reference number, you only receive a receipt and a reference number.
The order has not been completed and is not valid in the following instances:

  • The orderer has not received an email with the receipt and tickets.
  • The card payment was not completed for various reasons and the payment failed.
  • The payment is incomplete or was not correctly performed, and the amount
    has not been deducted from an account. The preliminary reservation is thus
    cancelled after a short period of time and the transaction is invalid.
