Perspectives in Hospitality Management

Bergen, Norway

            Taking a trip to Bergen, Norway is a stunning way to spend your vacation.  Tourists can hike up to Mount Ulricken to experience a spectacular view on the highest mountain in Bergen. Tourists can avoid the long hike by taking a cable car up to the top to experience this valuable natural attraction. Adventurous travelers can even zipline down the mountain. For visitors that want a more relaxing attraction, a fjord cruise might be the perfect alternative. A cruise traveling through the narrow inlets surrounded by cliffs is an awe-inspiring experience.  Since Norway is expensive, most people will benefit from some cost saving tips such as staying at a hostel.  The inexpensive hotels such as Hi Bergen Hostel Montana, Bergen Budget Hostel or Marken Gjesthus Hostel offer inexpensive lodging with friendly service and possibly free breakfast.  Other cost saving tips are using third party sites to book plane and hotel accommodations, getting a tourism card that will bundle admission prices with a discount, and cooking meals yourself since restaurants can be expensive. A Director of Tourism would use the beautiful scenery such as the stunning mountain tops and natural tourist attractions like the fjords to attract the nature loving tourist.
