Full description

Cruise the historical sites of Bergen on this group sightseeing tour, and get an idea of what the city looked like in the past when you would sail by old wooden warehouses in Skuteviken and Sandviken. Relax with a cold drink from the bar.

Marvel at how the city has transformed with luxury residences blossoming on top of skerries at Måseskjæret or springing out from the mountainside at Verftet. Board the modern Eric Bloodaxe, a spacious sightseeing boat with an outdoor deck with panoramic views and a cozy lounge.

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. Return to the Fish Market at the very heart of Bergen.

    It's a way to easily see the seaside of the city, but a little bit too expensive. Good for a rainny day
