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. This took us past the leaning gabled buildings and narrow alleyways of Bryggen, the old, Hanseatic, part of town, and on to Troldhaugen, the charming summer home of composer Edvard Grieg from 1885 to 1907. Here, in the turf-roofed Troldsdal...

Thursday, July 7, 2011 - Tromsø, Norway / Embark Clipper Adventurer: After our plane touched down in Tromsø from Oslo, we boarded motor coaches and enjoyed a trifecta of destinations. While listening to guides describe highlights of Tromsø along the way, our explorations began with a cable car ride up to Mount Storsteinen (the Big Rock Mountain in English), a Tromsø icon. Rising 421 meters above sea level, we marveled at pristine sunny panoramas of the city below...
