Destination in detail
Surrounded by seven mountains and seven fjords, Bergen is known as the official “Gateway to the Fjords.” This is Norway’s second largest city but it still retains its small town charm. Its rich Hanseatic heritage has been beautifully preserved, especially in the colourful wooden houses of Bryggen which are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Being a European City of Culture, Bergen is home to many fantastic museums and art galleries and also has a thriving culinary scene. A perfect year round destination, Bergen is an ideal starting point for your Norwegian adventure.

Bergen is an excellent hub for the Fjord Norway region offering great flight connections to the world. In addition to a large selection of direct flights to Bergen from all over the world, you can also arrive by ferry or cruise, by train from Oslo or Flåm or by car along the scenic fjords and coast to Bergen.
Bergen’s weather is warmer than the city’s latitude (60.4° N) might suggest. Temperatures below -10 degrees Celsius are rare. Summer temperatures sometimes reach the upper 20’s, but the city sees temperatures over 30 degrees only a few days each decade.
Bergen occupies most of the peninsula of Bergenshalvøyen in the district of Midthordland in mid-western Hordaland. Towering mountains protect and shelter from all sides and of course there are the beautiful fjords running through and around Bergen!
Plants and Animals
Norway is rich in wildlife. Wild berries can be found all over Norway, with the most common being blueberries, cranberries and cloudberries. Bird life is also abundant in the area, with many migratory birds nesting, on the cliffs and mountains in the summer.
