What is Bergen Heritage Tour?

Bergen Heritage Tour is a fantastic new offering in Bergen, offering you a unique and exciting tour of Bergen’s most stunning scenery, and a journey back in time to the golden age of travel!

The tour is offered: Sundays 23. and 30. June, 7., 14., 21. and 28. July and 4., 11., and 25. August.

The tour includes travel with the steam train, beautifully restored heritage buses and the graceful steamship Stord I. She was built for Hardanger Sunnhordlandske Dampskipsselskap at Laxevaag Maskin & Jernskipsbyggeri in 1913, and was in service for the company until 1969. It was restored between 1981 and 2013. The first of the buses that operate on the roundtrip was delivered in 1962 to Bergen Hardanger Billag. The bus went into service in the Bergen area and corresponded with local train services to Garnes and Voss. The second bus was delivered to Sogn Billag in 1979 and transported passengers from Vik i Sogn to the train in Voss. Veteranbusslaget acquired the first bus in 1992, the other one in 2005.

For more information on the tour visit Bergen Tourist Boards homepage. Tickets for the tour can be purchased at stord1.ticketco.no.
