Day one: Exploring Bergen with it’s picturesque streets & local art
But my gosh is this ever a beautiful city, especially the older part of it (where we spent most of our time). We walk on narrow, winding streets with colourful wooden houses and everything is so picturesque. We point at all the different colors, cute houses and blooming flowers.
Luckily the path from our accommodation down to the city center takes us through all this beauty.

Day two: Heading up on Mount Fløyen and walking home in the sunset
On our second day in Bergen we take a funicular (Fløibanen) up on Mount Fløyen and are met with a gorgeous view of the city.
This place has so much more to offer than a nice view though. Up here you can find many ways to enjoying nature; There are for example a lot of good trails both for hiking and biking.
There’s also a small lake located up here, called Skomakerdiket and it’s a nice place to hike to if you’re looking for a place to make a fire, swim or eat some lunch you’ve brought. From June 23rd to August 26th (this year), between 11:00 – 15:00, they offer free canoeing at the lake!
Norwegians are good at making nature very accessible and I love it so so much.
I really connected with Dans sister Sarah, a very creative girl who’s amongst other things very good at graphic design and photography. It was fun traveling with her and so nice to have her help me take photos of myself. Thanks! ♥︎
Up on this mountain here there’s also trolls(?) and an amazing, beautiful and fun playground – completely made out of wood!
