Bergen, Norway
Every day one of Hurtigruten’s 11 ships departs from Bergen, the starting point for the line’s coastal voyages. Founded by King Olaf III in 1070, it’s a fitting place to begin your maritime adventure having been a center of trade for more than a...

Bergen, Norway
Bergen, the gateway to the fjords, is Norway’s second largest city, though with a population of under 300,000, it has the relaxed feel of a small town. Before you depart on one of the many fjord cruises that begins in Bergen, you should spend some...

Nordnesparken, 5005 Bergen, Norway
It was August, so it seemed a perfectly sensible idea. I'm in Norway, land of the fjords—let's go for a splash in one! Bergen has a lovely little lido that offers you just that opportunity. Sure, you can swim in its heated outdoor pool, but the...

There’s no better view than from the top of 320-meter-high Mount Fløien. Ride up on the Fløibanen Funicular, just a short walk from the cruise ship dock on Bryggen wharf. The ascent takes less than 10 minutes, with sprawling...

Lille Øvregaten 14, 5018 Bergen, Norway
This gorgeous place in the heart of Bergen was just begging to be an AFAR highlight. Board games, books, homemade cupcakes, vintage gramophones, folk indie music and disparate couches and tableware are precisely what makes this small café so...

Bjørnsons gate 45, 5052 Bergen, Norway
Albeit the long ride, it is one that I will remember for a lifetime. The changing of weather during the ride was just breath-taking. One moment I got to witness luscious green lawns, and white snow the next. Not forgetting the magnificent fjords I...

Nøstegaten 30, 5010 Bergen, Norway
This is no typical cruise line though. It’s far from a Disney cruise and even further from the Royal Caribbean experience. Every Hurtigruten is a working ship. They do not set sail for tourist’s amusement, these ships have places to be...

Nedre Fjellsmauet 2, 5018 Bergen, Norway
Order cappuccinos to stay or to go at this cute little coffee shop, tucked up the hill from the funicular. They offer an assortment of open face sandwiches and pastries but most importantly they have delicious espresso drinks and friendly service....

Øster Voldgade 4A, 1350 København, Denmark
Unfortunately I spent most of our trip to Copenhagen in soggy tennis shoes cursing the weather and complaining that we couldn’t picnic in the rose gardens of Rosenborg castle. To escape a sudden downpour we hustled inside the castle to quickly dry...

Købmagergade 52A, 1150 København, Denmark
Walking along the winding streets of central Copenhagen, you will invariable chance upon the 17th-century Round Tower, with an observation deck that affords great views over the city and to Sweden in the distance. To reach the top, you walk up an...
