Another cafe I loved was the very Nordic Kaffemisjonen. If you’re in Norway for a limited time, this is the absolute best way to get a taste of the country’s dramatic landscapes in a single day.
You will get more interest and responses here than all paid dating sites combined! A three-day trip to Bergen would be the perfect opportunity to get a taste of what Norway had to offer.Finally, I allowed myself one splurge — a four-course dinner with wine pairings at To Kokker, a restaurant literally inside the Bryggen.The place feels like a time capsule, with low ceilings and slanted wooden floors. It’s my favorite exotic meat — rich yet lean and extremely tender.Once I had booked my flights, I reached out to Visit Norway and they offered to host me in Bergen for a few days, providing me with accommodation, a Norway in a Nutshell day tour, and a Bergen city press pass.
It turns out that three days is the ideal amount of time to visit Bergen.
Being a small city, you can cover its main attractions on foot and still have time left over, yet not so much time that you get bored.
I spent my first day sightseeing, my second day on the Norway in a Nutshell tour, and my third day relaxing and exploring on foot before jumping on the bus to the airport.
It made me realize how much I adore the Nordic countries — their beauty, their design, their architecture, their colors. The Fløibanen Funicular is located in the center of town and a short journey to the top. The cable car is about a 20-minute drive outside of town, and the ticket includes a ride from near the Fish Market.
Bergen’s most famous site is the Bryggen — its World Heritage-listed Hanseatic wharf, whose brightly painted wooden buildings have been standing for hundreds of years. I went in the afternoon, and as you can see, it was the worst time for light. The light was perfect in the other direction, though!
Bergen’s old town is built right on the water and on the edge of mountains.
