Bergen Travel Guide

Getting Around Bergen

Bergen has an efficient bus and night bus network, though service to the city''s outskirts can be erratic. A free bus service operates during the day from Monday to Saturday, looping around the city centre. However, central Bergen is easy to negotiate on foot, with plenty of attractions within walking distance. Tourist passes are available but are not necessarily good value. Metered taxis are plentiful and can be hailed, caught at one of the many taxi ranks or ordered by phone, but are expensive. The city also has an extensive ferry system, which tends to be less tourist-orientated than the express catamaran service available, and visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the fjords. Driving in Bergen can be somewhat harrowing as Norway operates on a priority from the right rule and traffic circles are usually confusing with little indication of intent from drivers. Drivers must also pay a toll every time they enter the city and so driving and parking becomes expensive. Car rental agencies are available, although drivers usually must be over 21 and have had their licence for a minimum of one year.
