      Tours from Bergen

      Bergen Dec 9, 2015 at 7:55 PM

      We are thinking of staying in Bergen two nights before going on our Norway in a Nutshell tour. We would arrive in the morning and plan to do the things most people say to do. Wander streets, take funicular up the mountain and see the wharf. On the next day is there another day tour worth taking that is not the Norway in a Nutshell area? Or any other suggestion on hikes/walks , cycling cruising?
      Thanks Sylvia

      Do we book minibus / van with English speaking driver / Guide?

      What do we do and see for the 2 days, 1st and 2nd June?

      We will proceed for the Norway in a Nutshell experience on 3rd June morning. Reach Oslo at night.

      How do we go about this (after booking online)?

      I know that these are a lot of questions, but please do help.

      Hi, I am planning to go from Bergen to the following places, spread over about 5 days:

      Kjeasen Farm, Voringsfossen, Nature Center, Eidfjord, Ulvik - Utne ferry, Aurland and the snow road, Norway in a nutshell (Voss, Myrdal, Flam, Gudvangen), and back to Bergen.

      Would this be possible using public transport? Especially the Kjeasen Farm, Voringsfossen, the nature center, and the Snowroad off Aurland? Or should I rent a car from Bergen?

    • Prices for left luggage in Bergen airport / luggage storage for several days

      Bergen Jun 1, 2014 at 4:02 AM

      I've seen a few questions related to short-term luggage storage in Bergen and am aware that the station has lockers for hire. However, I am hoping to leave my luggage somewhere for four days and travel with a smaller bag. If anyone can advise how much this is likely to cost at the airport, or if there is anywhere else in the centre that would store luggage for several days at a reasonable cost, I would appreciate it. I'm staying in three different places over four days so hotel storage is not really a possibility. Thanks in advance!

      We (2 adults, 1 young teen) will arrive from the Nutshell tour in Bergen at 10 pm Saturday and need to catch a bus to Stavanager at noon on Sunday. Is it ok to leave our (3) suitcases in the train station to pick up the next day since the bus station is next to the train, and do you know the locker cost? Also, how early do we need to get to the bus station to buy our tickets to Stavanger? I wish we had more time, but any suggested itinerary for the Sunday morning in Bergen is appreciated.

      Bergen to Stavanger by bus

      Bergen May 7, 2014 at 6:27 AM

      I am hoping to take a bus from Bergen to Stavanger at the end of July. I travelled with a friend a long time ago in a car from Bergen to Haugesund, and I remember it as a very interesting trip, going through tunnels and taking ferries between the various islands on the route. I imagine the last bit from Haugesund to Stavanger is probably just as interesting. But this time I won't have a car, so it will have to be on a bus.

      Does anyone know if this is practical, and if so, where I can book a bus? Or do I need to book it in Bergen? And how long does the journey take? Also any general guidance would be appreciated, for example one bus company may be better than another, or the buses may not run at weekends, that sort of thing. Any bus company websites would be useful too.
