Bergen is known as the “Gateway to the Fjords” because of its location on Norway’s west coast and its proximity to the wildest, yet loveliest fjords in the country. It is also Norway’s second largest city. Founded more than 900 years ago, Bergen has roots to the Viking Age and beyond. With its combination of coastal scenery and a backdrop of mountains, it is no wonder it has a reputation as Norway’s most attractive city. But that’s not all. It has a charm which stems from its hanseatic architecture and its lively and vibrant city life. With its offerings of museums, art galleries, cultural events and dining opportunities, it is a city well worth visiting.

During your 2 night stay (and you can extends this), you will have a guided city tour. This will include the famous fish and flower Market, Bryggen Harbour, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its quaint gabled houses and the old Hanseatic Quarter with its many museums, shops, restaurants and pubs. Then drive past the Fredriksberg Fortress and the Bergen Aquarium which has one of the largest collections of marine life in Europe. Then travel through some of Bergen’s attractive suburbs before reaching Nordaas Lake where you will see the home of Norway’s great composer, Edvard Grieg. Finally drive by Gamlehaugen, the residence of the Royal Family when they visit Bergen.

Day 2

Bergen City Tour - Private

A guided tour of the city, including a visit to the famous Fish and Flower Market, the old Bryggen Harbour with its gabled pack houses, the popular Hanseatic Quarter and the ancient Maria Church.

Bergen was founded in 1070 A.D. During the 12th and 13th centuries, when the Kingdom of Norway was at the peak of its power and there was lively communication between the mother country and the Norwegian colonies in the islands to the west, Bergen was the capital of Norway. The Norwegian kings resided here, and many historical events took place in this busy port, which in those days had no fewer than 27 churches and abbeys. Bergen owed wealth and prominence to the fish export trade - mainly dried fish which was one of the most important products of the Middle Ages.

The town grew to become the largest in Norway. Today, however, Bergen is the second largest city in Norway, surpassed only by Oslo, the present capital. Continue along Bryggen - the Hanseatic Quarter of Bergen, past the well-known Fish Market and drive towards the peninsula of Nordnes with its typical 19th century white painted wooden houses. On both sides of the peninsula you can see the harbour.

Continue past Fredriksberg Fortress and the Aquarium of Bergen - housing one of the largest collections of marine life in Europe. Proceed along the west-side of Bergen, crossing the Puddefjord and continue past the residential area of Laksevaag before we reach Krohnegaarden with a splendid view of the suburb of Fyllingsdalen, one of the largest suburbs of Bergen with a population of approx. 25.000.

You pass Boenes and continue along the Nordaas Lake where the composer Grieg's home is situated, and then you pass Gamlehaugen, the residence of the Royal Family when they are visiting Bergen.
