Bergen Akvariet information
Lonely Planet review
At the end of the Nordnes Peninsula, this aquarium has a big outdoor tank with seals and penguins, as well as 70 indoor tanks, snakes, crocodiles and a shark tunnel, which opened in 2010. You'll never forget the lovable steinbit, the hideous anglerfish or the school of herring, which seems to function as a single entity. There are also penguin and seal feedings throughout the day. On foot, you can get there from Torget in 20 minutes; alternatively, take the Vågen ferry or bus 11.
