Bergen Highlights with Lunch on Holmen Island - Bergen - 2018 ( 5 Hours 15 Minutes )
Bergen, Norway | 09 Aug 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Bergen is one of the oldest cities in Norway, founded in 1070 and has always been an important center for trade and culture. Its site and beauty drew the attention of the royal family and it became one of several royal cities of residence. In 1217, Bergen was declared the capital of Norway. For centuries, it was one of the most important cities in the German Hanseatic League.

Our morning begins with a drive to the smallest and oldest suburb of Bergen, Skuteviken, located just north of the city. This historic part of the city is a private residential area and the houses, dating back to around 1700, are the original famed Bergen houses. Our private expert guide will take us for a short walking tour of this city. Coming into the center of Bergen, we will stop at the ancient wharf “Bryggen” where we will continue our walking tour. “Bryggen” was originally built about 900 years ago, and due to the medieval architecture that has been preserved in this area, it is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. We’ll hear the fascinating history of the wharf, including stories about the Hanseatic League who held a German office here for nearly 400 years.

Our walking tour will extend to the Fish Market, at the very heart of Bergen. With its colorful displays of seafood, the Fish Market in Bergen has been at the same location for the past 500 years.

The walking tour will conclude and we will drive into the picturesque countryside, leaving the city center behind as we travel south, through the suburbs of Bergen. Reaching the small village of Alvoen after a mere 15 minute drive, a private boat will be waiting to take us to the nearby island of Holmen. On this secluded and privately owned one acre island resides one of Norway’s very best seafood restaurants, Cornelius, the lone structure on the island. Here, we will be welcomed at the docks by the charismatic staff, who will offer us an aperitif on arrival. Then, we are in for a real treat as we are entertained with the story of Cornelius and how the owner ended up opening up a restaurant on a small, deserted island.

Lunch will then be served accompanied by excellent wine carefully selected by Cornelius’ own sommelier. The menu of the day will only be known on the day itself, as it is a meteorological menu, meaning that the ingredients will be chosen according to the weather and what the sea has to offer that day. There will be alternatives for those who do not eat seafood.

After lunch, we will sail back to Alvoen quay. Upon arrival to the harbor of Bergen, our motor coach will be waiting to take us back to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual with comfortable walking shoes recommended. It is suggested that you bring a light jacket as the boat ride to the island for lunch may be chilly. Moderate walking over cobblestones, steps and inclines.
