A June 2000 trip
to Bergen by kimca
Quote: I have to admit that Norway wasn't one the countries that I was dying to see in our 17 country, 7 month trip. It ended up taking me by such great surprise and being one of the higlights. It is beautiful and unspoiled and a nature lover's paradise.

Vestre Stromkaien 6
We cruised along the Songefjord to the Aurland fjord on a fast boat for 4.5 hours. We changed boats in the middle of the water at the Midtfjord to a slower ferry, where we sat outside the whole time. The scenery went from beautiful to breathtaking at this point. Snowcapped mountains, waterfall-it was just gorgeous. We continued cruising down the Naeroyfjord for another 1.5 hours, the world's narrowest fjord. It was spectacular. We docked in Gudavangen, where a bus met us to take us back to Voss, via a scenic route. It stopped to let us get shots of the panorama. From Voss, we took the train back to Bergen. An absolute highlight.

Attraction | "Floybanen Funicular"
Once at the top, you can do a mountain walk, or have something to eat at the the Floyen Restaurant. It is open ever day in the summer and on weekends in the winter.
There is also a childrens playground and a souvenir shop.
If you choose, you can take the trail and walk back down which will take you about 30-40 minutes.
The funicular runs every 30 minutes and the station is located 150 meters from the waterfront Fish Market.
