A two hour sightseeing and fjord cruise with our beautiful and comfortable motor ship “ms Midthordaland”, giving you an opportunity to view and experience Bergen from the sea. Our voyage starts in the inner port of Bergen.
This hike to the top of Mount Fløyen starts in the city center, close to the Fish Market and the world famous Bryggen. Top of Mount Fløyen is 320 meters above sea level (1050 ft), so the hike elevation will be around 300 meters and it is quite steep. Expect to use 45 minutes just walking up, plus stops. Most of the road has asphalt, some parts have gravel. You will pass many nice lookouts and several different neighbourhoods. And of course the view from the top of the mountain!
