Hi all, I'm heading to Bergen for a few days and hoping to get a few days walking in.

Any advice for good walks in late May? What are the must do things? Nothing too technical and no climbing this time.

Also after general tips for the city.

 

Thanks!

Take a waterproof it has an incredibly high number of wet days. Nice city with some interesting museums, but as you would expect from Norway not cheap

A tourist has spent a week in Bergen and it has rained every day. Longing for some sunshine and good views he asks a local "does it ever stop raining here!?". The local replies "I don't know, I'm only 23."

I'll take two waterproofs.

What museums do you recommend? Is it easy to get to some longer walks in (next to) the fjords?

We only had half a day so didn't do much, but had loads of things we fancied.

If it's your thing the Shetland Bus ran from Bergan during the war and we visited a couple of sites commemorating the resistance movement.

In reply to Irk the Purist:the weather is predicted to be super duper for weeks.  It might not be cheap, but consider renting a car and going to Rosendal - some very good 'alps' there - Melderskin, Geitastolstind, walk to Fonnebu.  IM sure theres some amazing stuff between Bergen and Jotunheimen but i dont that area well

Thanks. Good news about the weather. I'm thinking more day trips from Bergen, back in time for some civilised food and culture time. 

Is there still snow on the mountains do you know?

In reply to Irk the Purist:melting fast but still some - someone i know is going to Stryn to go skiing this weekend, look at where that is on the map - a couple hours north, but still on the coast.

 

what i mentioned would be doable in a long day, and are really good hills, by the fjord.  You'd need to get a ferry or two, maybe you'll see whales, i did last summer
