4.  Have a nice walk at the Bergen Park

The Bergen Park has a nice lake, fountains and sometimes you can find street artworks.

5.  Hiking at Mt. Ulriken

Take the Hop on Hop off blue bus (you can find this at the city center) and it goes up to the cable car station.  Then, ride a cable car to reach the top of the mountain.  There’s a nice restaurant at the top of the mountain, and a fun/exciting hike going down the mountain.

6.  Fjord Tour

A Fjord is a long and narrow body of water that was made from glacial erosion.  And Bergen is surrounded by many Fjords.  There are different Fjord Tours available from Bergen and during my trip I took the ‘Norway in a Nutshell’ where the tour ended in Oslo.
