Bergen is a breathtaking city located on the coast of western Norway. The second-largest city in Norway.
Norway’s second-largest city and former capital, Bergen, is surrounded by seven mountains and is by far one of the most Instagram-friendly towns in the whole of Norway. Mount Floyen is one of the seven and is a fantastic mountain to summit on the local Løibanen funicular (a mountain tram) and offers a great view of the city.
Bergen does have an unusually high annual rainfall, but copes well with the rain and is an undeniably beautiful city that operates efficiently.
There is so much to see, and more to do in Bergen. Most of it is outside and includes the beauty of the place and the surrounding areas. Whether it be boat rides or train rides, there are so many adventures that will reveal the city and the surrounding districts as one of the most stunning in Norway. We offer many day tours and adventures in which we show the beautiful gems that exist in Bergen.
A city of this size and popularity is going to have an enormous list of dining options. Still, it is always refreshing to find some of the local eateries and try some of the local food.
Smoked Salmon or Røkt is one of the most popular of local dishes, served in several ways. Salmon forms a big part of the local diet and is always fresh and delicious.
Kjøttboller is also extremely popular. It is merely local meatballs, either beef or pork, and served with thick gravy or a creamy sauce, and sometimes served with cabbage.
Elegant dining options abound everywhere, along with chain restaurants and local eateries, and there is something for everyone in the city of Bergen. We would love to point out some of our favorite restaurants and local eateries.
Much of local Norwegian food and eating experiences include fish, so it is quite an adventure to go and visit the Bergen fish market. Massive and extremely popular, the food is fresh and colorful, and there is an opportunity to eat there as well.
A visit to the world-famous Fjords is always fantastic, and we can facilitate an excursion to the Fjords via railway, to visit the areas around Flam and Gudvangen, the two most accessible and noteworthy Fjord districts. A visit to the Old Bergen or Gamle Bergen is also an excellent day trip. Bergen was once Europe’s biggest wooden city, and this real-life museum will allow a peek of what it used to be like back then.
Bergen is a busy city, and there are always tourists and visitors around. Many of them head for the Bryggen Embankment. While there might not be that many hotels options that side it is known as the contemporary part of the city with all the restaurants and artist studios.
The areas around Nostet and Nordness are quiet and cobbled, and the accommodation options here often get overlooked. It is an excellent option for chilled accommodation, but still close enough to the hustle should you want to engage. Highly Instagrammable, this beautiful part of the city should not get brushed aside.
There is a well-functioning high-level public transport system in Bergen comprising bus and light rail. There is also a taxi system, but it is not cheap. The trick to keeping costs down on public transport in Bergen is to pre-order your tickets and get them for as long a period as you need. Buying from a conductor will see you paying at least 40% more surcharge. We also offer point-to-point pick-ups and drop-offs should you so need.Share this tour
