Guest Harbour

Here we have chosen to class guest moorings (quays etc) located in towns as Guest Harbours. These often have more facilities such as electric, water and fuel, and are generally affordable, very conveniently located for the sights and even sometimes a part of the amazing backdrop itself. For example in Bergen you can tie up alongside the famous Bryggen, a sight that brings 1000s of tourist flocking each year.
