Bergen One Day Sightseeing | Norway


Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf | UNESCO World Heritage Site

Bryggen means “wharf” in Norwegian. It was where Bergen was founded nearly 1000 years ago. Bryggen was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The original buildings were destroyed by fire in 1702. It was then built and rebuilt over the centuries

The wharf buildings have been converted to shops but kept their character. It was definitely very touristy.

Take your time to go through the alley, stop at some of the shops or maybe get a drink.

Bryggen is charming and picturesque!


Bergen’s best sausages” since 1946. Yes, do as the Norwegians do – have a reindeer sausage?!

Extra-long reindeer sausage with lingonberry, mustard and fried onions.
Tasted like pork!

Fjellskal Fisketorget (Fish Market)

The fist market has a very wide variety of fish and other seafood to eat in or take out. Just strolling through is a treat!

Many decisions to make…

Fjellskål Fisketorget AS

The seafood was fresh and plentiful. We were there around 2pm and it was hectic and busy with lots of tourists.

Kitchen & Table Bergen

We stayed at the Clarion Hotel and decided to “eat in” since the Kitchen & Table is the house restaurant also we are fans of Marcus Samuelsson. We had a big lunch so decided to order a bunch of appetizers.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park


Uluru Australia Icon

It is a long way from anywhere but totally worth the visit. This is my first visit to this ancient and spiritual landscape. It takes about three hours to fly from Sydney to Ayers Rock Airport at Yulara. We arrive on a Friday afternoon and drive from the airport pretty much straight over to the Uluru Kata Tjuta national park around noon.

You can see Uluru from the far away distance and after you drive close to the base it is even more impressive! The atmosphere at Uluru is something I can’t describe. It is a highly spiritual place. You can feel it everywhere.

Lunch at Uluru Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre

Once you enter further into the Cultural Centre, there are art and gift stores, a café, and bathrooms. It’s a great place to take a break and have something to eat.

Kata Tjuta

Uluru and Kata Tjuta (Mount Olgas) are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Kata Tjuta is a group of large and domed rocks. It’s located approximately 40km west of Uluru.

It is definitely hot and the flies are insane. You must buy the fly net head covers. There are so many flies, so be ready for that.

Walpa Gorge


Kulpi Mutitjulu

This is the family cave, Anangu families camped here for many generations.

Sunset at Uluru

Sunrise and sunset can not be missed. We were fortunate enough to watch the sunset right behind the rock as the colors went from dark yellow to orange to orange-red-brown to almost purple. Viewing it at different times of the day displays totally different colors and images. From north to south, east to west take your time to admire this unique piece of nature.

There are clearly marked sunrise and sunset watch places. You should plan to be at lookouts at least 30 minutes before the sunrise/sunset as it can get very crowded.
