Bergen Heritage Harbour Cruise

Join Bergen Heritage Harbour Cruise for a scenic two-hour boat trip departing from the Tourist Information in Bergen at 13:00

This journey will take you through some of Bergen's beautiful and historical areas. The tour begins by cruising out of the inner harbor called Vågen, passing the historic Bryggen World Heritage Site.

The tour continues to Sandviken, past the slaughter house and catch a glimpse of the Coastal Culture Center and Old Bergen, giving us a sense of the city's cultural heritage. We navigate around Eidsvågsneset and take a scenic turn into Eidsvågen. Then, we cross Byfjorden, before paasing on the inside of Strømsnesholmene.

The tour continues along the coastline of Askøylandet, where we pass Nutec and the submarine bunker. We head over to Verftet, known for its shipyards, and circle around the historic peninsula of Nordnes. Finally, we conclude our tour back in the harbor of Vågen.

Guiding on board depends on which crew is on board at any given time.
Light snacks and beverages on board.

About the Boats:

For well over 100 years, the "fjord boats" transported passengers and goods between Bergen and the surrounding districts – the fjords and islands. Several of these boats have been preserved, making Bergen home to one of Europe's largest fleets of historical passenger vessels, all with heritage status granted by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage.
There are three historical local route vessels that take turns operating this tour: M/S "Granvin" from 1931, M/S "Midthordland" from 1947, and M/S "Vestgar" from 1957. All unique, but they share a pleasant historical atmosphere and ample space both on deck and in the lounges.

Departure point: Outside the Tourist Information in Bergen, located at the Fish Market.

Tickets can be bought at TicketCo here.
