Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Be prepared to spend more than in other areas of Europe. It is still worth going and there is plenty you can do/see for free - the nature is stunning

Liked: It gave us a good first impression of the Norwegian culture. The outdoor environment was beautiful - we went for a nice walk up a hill next to the town. Apparently it "only rains" in Bergen but we had beautiful weather.

Disliked: It was expensive but we had been expecting that. Public transport wasn't so easy to understand - but we went to the tourist info centre and they were very helpful.

Customer Travel Tip: Hike up the mountain and explore then take the tram back down, as coming down is not fun and only hard on the knees.

Liked: Beautiful place with great nature escapes and good access to trip into the Fjords of Norway. There was also delicious fresh seafood.

Disliked: All of Norway is nearly prohibitively expensive. Worth it if you want to pay though.
