Waking this morning in a city surrounded by brilliant fjords and holding a rich history, you'll enjoy breakfast before your day's sightseeing ventures. This afternoon is then free for you to continue exploring Bergen at your leisure. As we say goodbye to the city tomorrow, this would be a good chance for you to visit any sites you didn't get to this morning.

This morning after breakfast, you're free to enjoy exploring the sights of Flåm.
