See Bergen's historical sights on this 60-minute guided sightseeing cruise in the city's inner and outer harbor. The cruise includes great views of Bryggen.
Enjoy some of the oldest and most relevant historical sites in Bergen, including the medieval fortress that served as the seat of Norwegian power in the 13th century and the colorful emblematic Bryggen wharf that made the city thrive as a successful trading center.
Get glimpses of what it looked like centuries ago when you sail past the old wooden warehouses in Skuteviken and Sandviken, and marvel at the luxury residences blossoming on top of skerries at Måseskjæret or springing out from the mountainside at Verftet. Hard to spot other than from a boat, we will sail past the WW2 concrete ruins of the U-Boot Bunker Bruno before waving at the locals bathing in the fjord at the historical Nordnes Sjøbad and returning to the very heart of Bergen, Vågen and the Fish Market.
The departure point is at Børshopen by the Fish Market, right behind the Tourist Information. It is within walking distance of most hotels and the cruise port in Bergen. The tour finish at the same place at Børshopen.
