Bryggen

Day 6 - Bergen

We woke up early and catched the 9:20 ferry to Gudvangen. The ferry trip was 2,5 hours. The ferry was fully loaded. Sognefjord was as promised - wide in the beginning, narrow in the Gudvangen side. There were not so many waterfalls as in Geiranger fjord; the surroununding mountains were very beautiful. We also saw during the ferry trip many wooden churches, which are common in Norway. The weather was improving - no rain.

It is 150 km from Gudvangen to Bergen. During that driving we also stopped in Voss, which is small town at the lake. It was nice to relax here - we had lunch, played mini-golf and walked. There was also a possibility to try rafting, but we considered the weather too cold for that.

Voss

Bergen was really cute town, especially the houses near the harbour - renovated Hansa buildings and fishing village including fish market. We had a dinner in old town - good pasta, although the prices here are very high. We tried also a funicular railway to Mount Fløye, 320 meters above sea level. From that place there was an excellent view on Bergen. We found again hotel Scandic as a best option for sleeping 970 NOK.
