What you'll do

We will meet at Blåsteinen or The Blue Stone in the city center, where we will begin a 6 km journey through two sections of Bergen. We will walk around the beautiful neighbourhood of Nordnes, one of the oldest communities of Bergen. From here we will travel to Johannes Church and the university area, visiting the botanical garden found there. From here we will return to the city through a park with its own story to visit the ruins of an ancient nunnery before we finally return back to our starting point. During this tour, over 20 areas both big and small will be visited, each with at least one story that is attached to it. 80% of the stories focus on the forgotten women of Bergen, but stories of military battles and catastrophe, as well as politcal takeovers will also told. This experience is recommended for those ages 12 and over, unless a youngster is especially passionate about history. A traditional Norwegian snack will be offered half way through this experience. Do be sure to let me know if there are any food allergies I should be aware of.

** I am now back at university for my last year of studies. While I don't have any evening tours planned on my Airbnb calender there are occasions when I can accomodate this. Do feel free to at least ask if I am available. ** I am a person who is passionate about telling the stories that are often unheard of. I have a Masters Degree in Literature and a minor in History, As well, I have taken many Archaeology courses just because it interested me. All stories interest me, both those that have been documented in the past, as well as those hidden in myth, and I love to share them with anyone who will listen.
