  • The hike is a little steep for those who have not used (do not expect small path but rather a lot of mud and stones) but the landscapes are beautiful and are worth so suddenly. Tip: begin to walk down the mountain ulriken (1 h 30 hiking climbing but nice) and down also walk from fløyen (there is on any defined road and it's not bad to finish with something easy for the legs) and it saves the cable cars.

Where to stay in Bergen

As a major Norwegian city, Bergen offers accommodations--and just about everything else--at a high price. Try to stay in the picturesque Bryggen wharf area near the fish market, or in the city center. If you’re looking for lively nightlife, check out rooms close to the city’s university. To find less-expensive lodging, search for hostels in the city center and campsites just out of town. Alternatively, live like a local by staying in a small guesthouse.
