Hey folks, I'm Ivan, originally from Croatia but soaking up life in Norway these days. Ever since I was a kid, I've always been drawn to meeting new faces. Spent the last 15 years in the service industry, now finding my groove as a tour guide in Bergen. Dreaming of running my own cozy bistro someday. Excited to hang out with you all soon and make some awesome memories together! 😃

Tour description

Hey everyone!

I'm Ivan, your trusty tour guide for the day. We'll kick things off by exploring the inner city gems, delving into its rich history and captivating events. 🏰

After that, let's dive into Bergen's culinary world, where we'll find the perfect spot for you to indulge your taste buds, catering to your preferences. 🍝

Oh, and fun fact, I'm also a sommelier! So, if anyone's up for sharing a "glass" of wine with me afterwards, count yourselves in! 🥂😃

And a heads-up: Bergen has its own way of welcoming us with rain, so be prepared for a sprinkle or two. 🌦

    Den Nationale Scene Theater

    Founded in 1850 as Det Norske Theater, this theater owes its existence to the pioneering vision of Norwegian violinist Ole Bull. Its primary objective was to foster the growth of Norwegian playwrights. Among its notable early contributors was Henrik Ibsen, who served as both a resident writer and an artistic director.

    Next, we will admire Bryggen from across the harbor, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The wharf was once a bustling hub of trade during the Hanseatic period and is now a popular tourist destination. The colorful wooden buildings along the wharf are home to shops, restaurants, and museums, including the Hanseatic Museum and the Schøtstuene Museum.

    After the Fish Market, I will show you where you can jump on the Fløibanen funicular, which can take you up to the top of Mount Fløyen. The ride up offers breathtaking views of the city and the surrounding fjords. At the top, you can enjoy a hike or take in the view from one of the cafes or restaurants. This is where we end the tour.
