For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

See Norwegian history unfold before your very eyes during this informative museum tour of Bergen. When King Olav Kyrre founded the city of Bergen in 1070, there was already a busy trading center on the site. The sea faring people of the world who have passed through Bergen have left many traces of their time here as evidenced in the buildings, names and traditions of the city. Today, as you sail up the Byfjorden, you are entering not only a modern port, but also a place with a long seafaring tradition, framed impressively by seven majestic mountains and highlighted by a beautiful the fjord.

Your tour begins with a drive along Bryggen and the Hanseatic Pier, with its old wooden warehouses from the Hanseatic period. On your way through the center of Bergen, you will pass by Grieg Hall, where the renowned Bergen Music Festival takes place every May. Your first stop is the Old Bergen Museum, an open-air museum that houses a collection of characteristic old Bergen houses, buildings, streets, a marketplace and alleyways. Each home, shop and workshop is furnished in its original décor from 150 years ago and this historic setting was used for the film, Song of Norway. Afterward, you will proceed to the Hanseatic Museum, located in Bryggen. Not only a fascinating museum, it is also one of the oldest and most well-preserved wooden buildings in the city. The museum is furnished in 1700's motif to provide an intimate picture of the life of the Hanseatic merchant.

At the conclusion of your tour, you will have the option of exploring the city on your own or rejoining your coach for the transfer back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1.5 hours of moderate walking/standing, at times over cobblestone surfaces. There are also stairs and steps to negotiate at the museums and raised thresholds. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns. Flat, comfortable walking shoes, umbrella and layered clothing are suggested. Guests who choose to stay in the city at the end of the tour will be responsible for finding transportation back to the pier.
