how to get from the cruise port to the town centre

by vonysc

Im going on a cruise next week and would like to know how far it is to get from the cruise port the town centre and what transport is available if needed, also need same information for Bergen, Stavanger and Flaam, hope someone can help, vonysc.

As far as I know the cruise-ships dock in the centre of all these ports.

Re: how to get from the cruise port to the town centre

by globetrott

In all of these ports the dockingplace for cruiseships will be in the very centre of the village/town, or in case that they have to anchor outside the port, the only way to get you in is to take you directely to the centre
(like some very large ships do in Flam and maybe other places, when more than 2-3 ships are there at the same time)
---
of all these places only in Bergen there is a really large city and walkingtime to the castle is about 5 min. to the famous wooden houses and fishmarket its about 10 min, to the Floybahnen (funicular) its next to Fishmarket

Re: how to get from the cruise port to the town centre

by evaanna

If you are going on the Hurtigruten they dock at the very centre of Aalesund so there is no problem with the transport, and the port for smaller boats is very near to it, so there is no need to worry. Flaam is a tiny place - you don't need any transport there - you can walk everywhere.

Travel Tips for Ålesund

Petrol in Norway!

by MikeAtSea

Norway is one of the largest petrol producing nations on earth, one would assume that petrol is relativley cheap. Think again - a litre of petrol set you back over US$ 3 or EUR 2.60 - take this in to consideration when planning a road trip, since fuel is almost double to other countries on earth!

Unforgetable Geiranger

FRANÇAIS:
Le Geiranger fjord est un des plus merveilleux. Faites le voyage, vous n'aurez rien à regretter... Voyez le *link* que m'a donné mon ami Christer, ci-dessous.

ENGLISH:
Geiranger fjord is one of the most beautiful. If you are in the neighbourhood, you will never regret to make a detour and see by yourself... I have got this link below from my friend Christer.

DUTCH:
De Geiranger fjord is echt een van de mooiste, en als U in de buurt bent, zult U nooit spijt krijgen als U zelf gaat kijken, 't omweg meer dan waard. Link heb ik gekregen Christer.

Brosundet

by Bjorgvin

Visit the old harbour “Brosundet” and Skansegata, the museum area of Viking Age Borgundkaupangen, and the huge vaults of Skjonghelleren (cave) on the island of Valderby, which gave shelter to the Stone Age man. The Art Nouveau style, which gives the city and its buildings a distinctive character. The canals that zigzag through the city, and the colorful pedestrian streets, Kongensgate, Apotekergate, Kirkegate etc.

Backcountry skiing

by Gangerolv

Skiing near Høgsvora, Ørskog Mountains, about 30 minutes East of Ålesund. This area offers great backcountry skiing and touring. There's also a nice groomed track from the ski area that's free! A concept that's not yet caught on here in Colorado.
There's many other places short distance from Ålesund that offers great skiing. The daylight hours are short so plan accordingly. What I miss the most is the food (seafood) and the summer nights when the sun barely drops down under the horizon.

Buildings in Jugendstil line...

by gardesque

Buildings in Jugendstil line the waterfront on both sides of the sound. A couple of restaurants have tables next to the water. Or you can enjoy the view from this spot, Apotekertorget. The statue is of a fisherman, and is a monument to honour all those who have lost their lives at sea. This is, after all, the largest fishing community in Norway. Especially at sunset and at night, strolling along the sound is very romantic. But remember, if you're here at summer, dusk lasts from 11pm to 3am, and dawn lasts from 2am to 5pm. (Yes, I know those overlap. :^)
