Snowshoe hiking Private: According to you as the customer, but due to the safety margin for the cruise, we often make this trip shorter for private groups than the public version. Typically it will be to meet early at 08:00 and finish at around 12:00 in order to be back at the ship by 13:00 at the latest. For those who only have about 3 hours, the trip is not recommended.
The vast majority of cruises are located in the port of Bergen, just 10 minutes from the tourist information where we have our regular meeting place. When booking private tours we arrange a specific meeting place right by the ship. we customize the trip to the desired time and length.
From May to August Bergen is visited by over 400 ships, and some days over 10,000 extra tourists in the city center, we are locally known and always find tours off the beaten tracks. There are quit few guide companies in Bergen, so it can be good to book early.
Please read practical information before meeting for a tour. The weather in Bergen can change very quickly so its important that you bring necessary clothing for mixed weather.
