Experience Bergen, Mount Fløyen, and Mostraumen Fjord all year on this tour, accompanied by a local English-speaking guide.
See the sights of Bergen including St. Mary’s Church, Bergenhus Fortress, Fish Market, Hanseatic quarter (Bryggen), and Mount Fløyen.
Our local guides travel with you all day and share their knowledge of places, attractions, and history.
Experience the spectacular fjord scenery on this 3-hour cruise that takes you up the 27-kilometer Osterfjord. Underway, the fjord narrows between steep mountains as we bring you safely through the powerful currents of the shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait.
On this fjord cruise, we sail our bow right up to the waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water for you to sample before turning back and returning to Bergen through the magnificent landscape. The modern, comfortable boats have sundecks and kiosks offering refreshments, including beer and wine.
The picturesque Fish Market in Bergen is one of Norway’s most visited outdoors markets. The Fish Market sells seafood, fruit, and vegetables and has a charming location in the heart of the city between the fjords and Bergen’s 7 mountains.
You can find fresh fish and seafood, local farm food like fruit, berries, and vegetables as well as flowers and plants. There are also several restaurants serving a large selection of seafood. The indoor market is open all year and the outdoor market is open from the 1st of May and during the summer.
The Fish Market in Bergen has existed since the 1200s and has since then been one of the most important places for trade between fishermen, farmers, and the inhabitants of the city. In addition to the merchants on land, there were also historically sales from boats along the quay. Fishermen who lived outside the city used to row into the market to sell their catch of the day before rowing back home the same day.
The colorful Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf is one of Bergen’s and Norway’s main attractions. The very first buildings in Bergen were situated at Bryggen, which has been a vibrant and important area of the city for many centuries. Bryggen is now part of our common heritage and has a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and the city of Bergen is a designated World Heritage City. The world heritage site consists of the old Hanseatic wharf and buildings, and one of the best known urban areas from the Middle Ages in all of Norway.
The Funicular Railway is one of Norway’s most famous attractions. The trip starts from the city centre, just 150 metres from the Fish Market and Bryggen. The exiting trip up to the mountain is a magnificent experience in itself. From Mount Fløyen, approx. 320 metres above sea level, you can enjoy the beautiful view, study the cityscape in detail and the seaward approaches and fjords surrounding Bergen. At Fløyen there is also a restaurant, cafeteria, souvenir shop, and play area.

There are two cars, each of which can carry 100 passengers. The track has 6 stops and is frequently used by locals living up on the mountainside as well as two kindergartens on the mountain.
St. Mary’s church is the oldest existing building in Bergen. The church was built in the mid-1100s, and, from the end of the Middle Ages, it was the German church in Bergen. The church has the most elaborate church art of all the Middle Age churches in Norway.
