  ACTIVITY:

LUX:
Does Scandinavia’s only funicular count as luxury? The Floibanen takes passengers from Bergen, up a hillside. The view over the city of Bergen, the fjords, inlets and hills is stunning. Bergen is a really romantic city. At the top of the hill in a tourist shop we bought plastic slide type things for our boys to toboggan down the snowcovered path. The locals had these bike-like sleds to skidoo down the hill back to Bergen. This was definitely the boys’ highlight.
 
LOCAL:
The drive from Bergen to Aselund must feature on listicles of the world’s greatest drives. It was incredible. Mountains, fjords, plains. Our car had a sat-nav that kept telling us a ferry was about to happen. Sure enough, the road stops, you drive onto a ferry and disembark on the other side. It’s an incredibly efficient ferry service. We didn’t ever have to wait long for a ferry. While on the ferries we grabbed snacks - bacon-wrapped hot dogs for the boys, Troika bars for me - and took in the view. By the fifth ferry, we stayed in our car.
