Day 01: Bergen, the Gateway to the Fjords

Arrival in Bergen according to your own itinerary. Bergen is Norway’s second largest city and the world’s only city surrounded by 7 mountains and 7 fjords. Bergen is – with good reason – called the Gateway to the Fjords due to its close proximity to the Norwegian fjords. This makes the city the perfect starting point for exploring the fjord region.

Bergen City tour
This day is all about walking around Bergen with a professional guide. Bergen city centre is very compact with much to see and hear about within a short walking distance. This is a 2 hour walking tour of the downtown heart of Bergen.

The tour will take you to Bryggen, a World Heritage Site, the Bergen Fortress area, strolling passed old wooden houses, chimney houses & along cobblestoned streets while hearing of Bergen’s past & present. This will help you orientate and show you some of the unique places and sites that you may not otherwise find alone.

On this tour we’ll walk at the Wharf, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the historical heart of Bergen.

The narrow alleyways will make you feel like stepping back in time to the era when the Hanseatic merchants dominated Bergen’s trade. You will learn about the stockfish trade, daily life in the Middle ages, and about the Wharf as a secret hide-out during World War II.

From the Wharf it’s a short walk to the Bergenhus Fortress, with the royal stone hall and the Rosenkrantz tower.
