Upon arrival in Bergen, proceed to the hotel for check-in. After you have checked-in you will begin a 3-hour city tour of beautiful Bergen. Please arrive at the hotel before 4pm in order to join the tour. You will begin your tour at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bryggen, with its brightly painted houses on the water front, and work your way along old cobbled streets, passed old wooden houses to the Bergen Fortress area.

This is also the area where many of the hiking trails start. You can find full details of all the hiking trail routes here.
Day 3 – Bergen & The Fjords
After breakfast at the hotel, you will be taken on a full-day tour of Bergen’s surrounding area, to experience Norway’s beautiful fjord scenery. From Bergen, we will catch the early morning train to Myrdal to take the Flåm Railway to Flåm. This is one of the most breath-taking train journey’s you’re likely to experience in Norway; around every corner is yet more stunning scenery. You will spend some time here in Flåm relaxing by the water’s edge and taking in the surroundings. There are a few shops and restaurants here to buy some lunch too. Afterwards, you’ll take the most incredible boat journey through the fjords to Gudvangen, arguably the highlight of this trip.

Clothing Even if you are travelling during the summer months, take warm clothes with you as well as summery things – it is Norway after all, and it does get chilly on the boat trip through the fjords. We also advise comfortable walking shoes and a light rain jacket or umbrella. If you intend on going hiking, make sure you have a hat and adequate sun protection, as despite the temperature, the sun can still be quite strong – even through the clouds.
Health You shouldn’t need any inoculations for travel in Norway, but it’s always good to seek medical advice from your doctor or travel nurse before you travel and make sure your vaccinations are up to date. Remember that your travel insurance may not cover you if you do not have up-to-date vaccinations.
