And don't forget to bring home some reindeer and whale salami! [Sustainably caught of course!]

We had expected to be quite central, from previous cruise reports, but we were some distance away from the centre, and, in torrential rain, it was not a pleasant walk. Didn't see any taxis at or near our berth.The Bryggen is well worth a visit and the fish market, where we had lunch, also in the rain, and the sun umbrellas were in use as rain umbrellas, where we had a great meal, of fish, of course!! Bergen well deserves its reputation for rain.


Many thanks for the information, always useful to be prepared for a longish walk (especially if it is raining). We have pencilled in the Bryggen and the fish market. :thumbup:

Switchback provides some amazing photos of Norway and also guides to some of the must-see areas. It is mainly geared towards those doing walking, or hiking, but provises some idea of the things you may see during your cruise too.
