Bergen Shore Excursion: Bergen Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

A City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus tour is the perfect do-it-yourself shore excursion while you’re in port in Bergen. It’s a convenient way to travel around the city and see the sights at your leisure.

Explore all the must-sees of the vibrant Norwegian city of Bergen, including St Mary's Church (the oldest building in Bergen), the Den Nasjonale Scene theater, the Fredriksberg Fortress and the Bergen Museum, which boasts one of the largest collections of cultural and natural history objects in Norway.

Then visit the world-famous Fish Market (Fiske Torget), which offers a variety of fresh food, flowers and souvenirs. Or hop off at the Mount Fløien Funicular station, where you can board the Fløibanen funicular to the mountain top (own expense) and enjoy splendid views over the city and its surrounding islands.

Don't miss a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed district of Bryggen, where you can see the characteristic colorful wooden houses at Bergen's old wharf and visit the Hanseatic Museum to learn about the Hanseatic League that traded stockfish and grain in this area for more than 400 years.

The onboard audio commentary is available in eight languages (English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and Norwegian) and provides you with interesting facts about Bergen's history, culture and sights.

This excursion is located within a 10-minute walk to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Bergen. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

great overview of the city. The wifi on the bus worked perfectly

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Bergen was a treat. Weather OK, people wonderful, and our first experience on a HO-HO bus exceeded our expectations. The Funicular was crowded so we toured the city instead, and ate from a fish stand at the wharf. Best fresh fish we have ever had.
Highly recommend this Tour.

An essential part of Bergen sightseeing. You see lots in a short time and the views are wonderful.

Bus was very good. The busses should run more often, like every 30 to 45 minutes. Bergen was a very pretty city and I wish we had more time there

Great way to get a broad overview of Bergen. Since we only had one day, it met our needs and was a good value.
