Private Walking Tour of Bergen from your Hotel

Hello! My name is Emma. I moved to Bergen from Australia five years ago and have been loving it ever since. I work as a professional tour guide and tour leader and enjoy providing private and unique tours of Bergen that is different from your average walking tour.

Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway; founded in 1070 as Scandinavia's first commercial town. Bergen became famous as one of the main trading cities for the German Hanseatic League, and the UNESCO World Heritage Bryggen reflects their way of life. Voted as Norway's most beautiful city, Bergen is full of charming alleys with historic wooden homes, churches, mountains, and culture.

On this walk, we won't just learn about the history of Bergen, but also the way of life here - what is it like to live in Bergen and Norway?

The tour is completely customised according to your interests, making each tour unique. We will pass by major attractions, but I'll also show you secret alleys, buildings, street art and food!
