It’s not just the cruise liners which bring hordes of tourists to Bergen every year, although they certainly play their part. Hundreds of private craft are now to be found moored in Vågen, the main harbour area in the city. While many of these are from other areas of Norway, a large number hail from other parts of Europe and further afield. There are a few Stars and Stripes and Maple Leaves to be seen alongside the Swedes, Germans, Dutch and Danes. The good weather (mostly) of the last couple of months has certainly encouraged those who can afford to visit prosperous and pricey Norway to do so. I’m fairly certain none of the boats in these photos costs less than 100 kroner!
