We have reached the conclusion of this cruise, with a beautiful sail-in to Norway’s second city, Bergen.
This is a place that gets a lot of rain. A lot. So much so that my large collection of photos from many visits we have made to Bergen contains very few flashes of blue sky. That ended today, a superlative day with hardly a cloud in the sky and cool weather for walking. And so we did.
Here is some of what we saw:
Viking Sky at the dock in Bergen.
Bergen’s historic Bryggen district, the former home of the Kontor or trading post of the Hanseatic League.
Snow on one of the seven hills that surround Bergen.
Bergen’s train station, which connects up into the mountains to Voss, above Flåm, and from there on to Oslo on the other side of the country on the Baltic Sea.
We wish guests leaving us here safe travels, and look forward to meeting new friends on our trip back north up the coast of Norway.
