Mostraumen and Osterfjord Cruise - Round tour from Bergen

5 reviews
Join our round-trip cruise from Bergen in spectacular fjord scenery. This fantastic tour takes you up the 27-kilometer long Osterfjord. Underway, the fjord narrows between steep mountains as we bring you safely through the powerful currents of the shallow and narrow Mostraumen strait. We sail our bow right up to a waterfall to catch a bucket of ice-cold mountain water for you to sample before turning back and returning to Bergen through the magnificent landscape. Our modern, comfortable boats have sundecks and kiosks offering refreshments, including beer and wine. <br><br>Departure from Zacharias Bryggen / Fish market in Bergen

New years day, time to test on of Bergens main attractions. Although off season, admittance is close to 300 NoK. Is it worth it? Not really sure. The outdoor area is small and the penguins are interesting and fun, but my money is on the sea otter. Indoor display ranging from tropical snakes, crocodiles, poison frog and fish in all color and ranges was fine. Coole kid on the block was the piranha. A bit dark and worn down exhibition and somewhat dull displays is basically our impression. We had higher expectations. COVID precautions seems to be in place and followed. Been there done that.

While waiting for Hurtigruten (ferry) we decided to visit the famous aquarium. Despite this pandemic that is upon us. Not too many visitors at this time. Lots of different animals and a couple shows to watch and a lot of fun for kids of all ages.

Visited the aquarium while staying in Bergen. Not crowded (at least in February), lovely aquarium with lots to see. There are outdoor shows and several floors inside with exhibits.

We decided to go here because it’s free with a Bergen card in low season (25% off in high season) and we were looking for something to do on our last day. It’s about a 15 min walk from the harbour, through a part of town you might not otherwise visit. Quite quiet when we went, which was nice and relaxing. Otters, seals, and penguins outside, with plenty to take your attention inside too, a small shark tunnel, there’s also crocodiles, cayman, snakes, tortoises, crabs and lots of fish and other marine life. There’s a cafe and gift shop. Recommended if you’ve got kids!

I only visited the aquarium to kill an hour or so while in Bergen as I didn't want to just be wandering the streets for hours on end. It's a nice little place with a fair few animals and shows throughout the day - I managed to catch the sea lion one while I was there and that was nice to watch. (I really appreciated them letting us know that the sea lions aren't forced to come out and only train if they want to through positive reinforcement). It is a bit expensive for what it is and isn't somewhere you could spend all day. However, and like I said, it's good to kill some time.

Hello! Thank you so much for nice stars and feedback, we really appreciate it.Bergen Aquarium is a foundation, so we "live" by our ticket income. It is pricey to run the the Aquarium in a year in animal food, medicine, electricity and much more. The ticket price is calculated so we can renew exhibits and new projects. Bergen Aquarium
