A Quick Tour of Bergen, Norway

A Quick Tour of Bergen, Norway

After a 7-hour train ride from Oslo to Bergen, which was absolutely breathtaking, I arrived in Bergen, a cute little city surrounded by mountains and fjords and outfitted with row houses on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

In a word: charming. In another: expensive.

As I learned in Oslo, Norway is one of the most expensive places you’ll travel. In Bergen, most of my food came from convenience stores (yay for 7-11!) and I limited my paid excursions to a fjord tour and a tour of Rosenkrantz Tower (though I should have also done the Fløibanen Funicular for the view).

The 4-hour White Lady Fjord Tour was relaxing, though not all that exciting. However, I did get to see and finally understand what a fjord actually is! (Basically, a narrow sea inlet through steep cliffs, formed by glaciers.)

Rosenkrantz was also a good choice. It’s old, medieval-times old, made with beautiful stones and has a dungeon.

Lastly, I walked around the city browsing knickknack shops and ended up at the Fish Market where I bought elk sausage to bring home to my dad.
