Forego the lines by ordering tickets for Norled in advance. Make sure to take a jacket for the outdoor decks.
The ferry has a kids room on the lower deck. A great place for when you need a break from the wind.
To make the most of your trip to Bergen go during the warmer months of May-September, when the boat cruises operate.
Bring plenty of water and snacks for kids to avoid spending extra along the way.
What’s the perfect vacation day in Norway for kids? How about a morning fjords cruise and island exploration combined with an afternoon of play and mountain hike? Thanks to Bergen’s transportation options, you can soak in those Nordic views without having to trek everywhere with your kids. Start your Norway fjords cruise early by taking the morning Norled Ferry from Bergen, and you’ll get back in time to take the Fløibanen (funicular) up Mount Fløye. There are plenty of snacks for the kids along the way and every member of the family will enjoy the views. Our kids were especially excited to have a face to face encounter with a friendly mountain goat and afternoon play on the zip line and playground. The island exploration, combined with a mountain hike, make for the perfect family day out.
