Walking tour


Bergen city centre is very compact with much to see and hear about within a short walking distance. I will take you on a 3 hour walking tour of the downtown heart of Bergen.

We will wander around Bryggen, a World Heritage Site, the Bergen Fortress area & stroll passed old wooden houses, chimney houses & along cobblestoned streets while hearing of Bergen's past & present. This will help orientate you and show you some of the unique places and sites that you may not otherwise find alone. The tour can be tailored to suit your interests and needs.

I can give you the history of the city from its founding in 1070, through the Middle Ages and WW2 to present day while answering any questions you may have about Bergen and Norway.

Tours can also be arranged to Fantoft Stave Church, Edvard Griegs villa & museum, to include the funicular railway & fjord tours in the surrounding area on request
