Today winter arrived in Bergen. Wandering the streets of Bergen during winter is a magical experience. The white snow and the colorful houses create a unique atmosphere. And if you feel cold after exploring the city, the next café is never far away.

Have you ever dreamed of sleeping in an Igloo Hotel and experiencing the beauty of the Arctic wilderness? Then we might have the perfect trip for you:

https://www.fjordtravel.no/tour-cruise-norway/igloo-hotel-arctic-wilderness/

Spend a night at Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel and experience the beauty of ice and snow. After a good night sleep in your warm sleeping back you set out on a two-day guided snowmobile adventure to the wilderness. Feel the thrill driving through varied landscape, over frozen lakes and rivers up to Finnmark mountain plateau. Listen to the total silence when stopping and experience the special light of the winter time in the Arctic. Spend the night at a cozy mountain lodge, with good chances to see the Northern Lights, before heading back to civilization the next day.

Sounds exciting, right?

Imaging standing atop the towering cliff-plateau of Pulpit Rock, 604 meters above sea level, looking over the mesmerising blue Lysefjord and the surrounding mountains. This is simply breathtaking! No wonder why this hike is on many traveller’s bucket list. Now you have the chance to join a guided hiking trip to the famous Pulpit Rock on our brand-new tour “Highlights of Southern Norway”.

https://www.fjordtravel.no/tour-cruise-norway/highlights-southern-norway/

The mountain plateau of about 25 x 25 metres was most probably shaped by the expansion of ice some 10 000 years ago. In the old days, the name of the plateau was Hyvlatånnå (planed tooth), and was already then well known as a landmark for fjord travellers in the Lysefjord. It was not until around 1900, that the first tourist travelled to the top and Preikestolen as a touristic destination was discovered.

Welcome to an unique nature experience and some really spectacular views!

OUR FAVOURITE SPOTS IN BERGEN, NR. 10

Shops inside Bryggen
To many visitors Bryggen is, first and foremost, a facade. The tall and slim wooden houses standing gable to gable along the quayside, seemingly leaning on each other, are a symbol of Bergen. What you don´t see from the street and what is hidden in the small alleys between rows of historic houses are the many shops and artists. Even we locals in Bergen have by far not seen all shops inside Byrggen area. Here you find potters, jewellers and artists as well as textile and leather crafters. So when you visit Bryggen make sure to drop into the small shops and ateliers. They are really worth a visit.

OUR FAVOURITE SPOTS IN BERGEN, NR. 9

If you want to get the feeling how life in Bergen looked like in the eighteenth or nineteenth century we can highly recommend to visit Old Bergen Museum. This is an open air museum where you can experience some of this atmosphere. In beautiful natural surroundings you can meet both masters and servants from the past. You can peak in windows, open doors, and walk into exhibitions and historical interiors. The museum´s "inhabitants" help to bring the site to life and provide answers to some of the questions on how life could have been lived in Bergen one or two hundred years ago. This is both educating and fun for the whole family!

Farmers Market Bergen
I love shopping on markets and specially to buy local and seasonal products. Did you know that beside the famous fish market that Bergen also has a farmer’s market on some weekends throughout the year? Here you can stroll the market stalls and taste regional products like the famous cheese from Undredal, honey or traditional pastry. It is very easy to get in contact with locals on the market and to really get a feeling for the Norwegian food culture. Why not shop some unique souvenirs on the market?

Pepperkakebyen (Ginger Bread Town)
Here in Bergen we are very proud of our city and this combined with the start of the Christmas season tends to spark some pretty extraordinary ideas – the world´s largest Ginger Bread Town. Every year since 1991, kindergarteners, schoolchildren, local businesses and thousands of other volunteers have participated in the construction of everything from tiny homes to local landmarks, trains, cars, boats and international signature buildings. So if you are in Bergen between 19th November and 31st of December do not miss to visit Ginger Bread Town. We think this is a great way to get into Christmas spirit.

Cornelius Seafood Restaurant
One of our personal favorite restaurants in Bergen is Cornelius Seafood Restaurant. If you are looking for a romantic evening or a nice evening with friends this is the place to be. The restaurant can only be reached by boat from the city center or by private boat/yacht (in case you have one 😊). The restaurant is situated right by the sea on a small island with spectacular views of the fjord, mountains, skerries and passing boats and ships. Inspired by the weather of the day, Cornelius serves its famous Meteorological menu of exquisite seafood and trimmings. This is really and exotic place and we can promise you a dinner which you will never forget.
