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.
