Bergen, Norway / Embark Ocean Adventurer

Unusually for Bergen, it was a dry, warm and sunny weekend when we arrived here to begin our travels in Wild Norway and Svalbard. Bergen experiences only five rain-free days a year and this was exceptional weather which was being enjoyed to the full by the locals, especially as this was also the Norwegian National Day holiday weekend. We set out on foot early this morning, for a tour...

Monday, June 1, 2015 - Bergen, Norway / Embark Sea Adventurer: A gray, rainy morning failed to dampen our spirits as we gathered for our tour of Norway’s attractive and historic second city.
