Today we did the Norway in a Nutshell self guided tour. We had breakfast in our hotel then had to be at the bus stop over by the train station by 10.00am. Now like us you might think this is quite late to get going but you need to remember that it doesn't get light until 9.30am.
Our room looks out over a lake and when it became light we …
Our last day in Bergen today. We headed down for brekky around 8.30am - same as the previous day - but we got the toast on straight away so it actually looked like toast today. After breakfast we went back up to our room and finished all our packing, and checked out around 11am. The hotel had a baggage room where we could store our cases so we …
August 13 Although we love Bergen we gotta go. Today we go into the wild Norway so we get up at 5.30 a.m and take a bus to Hjessedafossen Falls. Wonderful! It's very big and it's in the middle of nowhere. People says its water grants eternal youth, I don't know if that's true but I can say water is very good and pure, directly from norwegian snowy …
... and then up some hill. At this point, you're sweating and thinking that you must be almost there. Then, you see the first little gate that you have to go in, and you think you're there. Then, you go up some more hill. Possibly, you realize you're not as "almost there" as you think, and you take a breather on one of the many benches they have situated on the side of the path. Also, you take some pictures as you have an incredible view of the city and the lake area. Then, you continue ...
And we are going to be spending it in Voss, a little outdoor adventure town just over 1 hour train ride from Bergen. We discovered a brochure on Voss yesterday at the TI station in Flam. There are a lot of activities including hiking and whitewater rafting. After a lot of discussion and our recollections of testing the water yesterday - we chose hiking. Again we were blessed with a sunny warm day. Our day will start with a gondola ride up to ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We were originally meant to stay at Fleischers but at the last minute they closed for 2 weeks and transferred our booking to here. The public areas are all really nice and the staff equally so. However the room was pretty ordinary but nonetheless clean with comfy beds which are our two main criteria.
We had lovely lake views from our room with a tiny little balcony opening off it.
The big surprise for us was our dinner on both nights - we were doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour and dinner was included. Many years of travel mean that we don't have particularly high expectations of included dinners - good basic food usually, sometimes quite bland. Not so at the Park - poached salmon with caramelised onions, tender beef fillet with roast vegies and creme brulee with fresh berries on the first night. And the second night was equally awesome - baked cod on garlic mash, melt in your mouth veal fillet with vegies, pannacotta with raspberry sorbet. Two absolutely outstanding meals. As is normal in Norway watch out for the wine costs - even house wine was about $15 a glass.
