Bergen, Norway

What to do in Bergen and Aalesund

These two lovely Norwegian cities offer so much to visitors who want to spend an extra day exploring independently. Bergen Our Norway: Western Fjords Adventure meets in Bergen, but we don’t spend much time here. We recommend arriving a day or two before the tour to recover from jetlag and spend some time getting to… Read More »

What to do in Reykjavik

If you are arriving to Reykjavik early or extending your visit after a Boundless Journeys Iceland tour concludes, there is enough to keep you busy in this small, compact city for a leisurely 2 days.  The two main streets in the city are Laugavegur and Skólavörðustígur. Laugavegur is one of the oldest shopping streets in… Read More »

What to do in Ljubljana

Have we told you how much we love Slovenia? It’s one of our favorite places because it reminds us of our home state of Vermont with a European twist. Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, is a wonderful laid back city with a small town feel. A couple days on either end of our Julian Alps Hiking tour… Read More »

What to do in Bari

Bari is the capital city of Puglia and where we begin our Discovering Puglia tour. Much of it is an industrial port town, but the historic center has it’s own charm. The only way, really, to explore Bari’s Old Town is on foot. Wandering along the winding roads and down narrow alleys you’re sure to… Read More »

What to do in Venice

Joining our Dolomites Hiking tour? We end in Venice, but don’t spend much time there as a group. Venice is a maze of canalside promenades, narrow alleys, and ornate bridges. In the summer, when crowds are at their peak, it’s fun to escape by ducking down empty alleys. It’s an island, so you can’t get… Read More »

What to do in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi

When possible, exploring on foot is our favorite way to see a new destination! Of course, traffic in the major cities of Vietnam is a sight unto itself, so even crossing the street can be an adventure. For-hire transport options include taxis, motorbikes, and cyclos, and require a bit of bargaining ahead of time to… Read More »

What to do in York

Founded by the Romans, York’s Old Town is ringed by a massive wall. Less than a mile across in any direction, this wonderfully preserved medieval town is one of the most fun places in which to wander, especially after hiking the Coast to Coast trail. The Shambles York’s most famous street (and possibly the inspiration… Read More »

What to do in Cusco

Cusco is fun to wander on foot, but it’s easy to get turned around on the winding streets and back alleys.

Nelson New Zealand
