Bergen is ideally situated as a point of departure for tours to Norway's major tourist attraction, the fjords. There are a wide variety of departures by coastal vessels, north to the Sognefjord or south to the Hardangerfjord.
Combine your congress with a cruise on the fjords in a veteran boat, a sailing ship or a modern express craft. If you are busy, a compact version of Norway's spectacular scenery can be seen in a matter of three hours.
Those wanting to follow a more leisurely pace can take a day trip experiencing everything from steep mountains to peaceful fjords; waterfalls to mountain lakes and rich green fields to heather-clad islets facing the ocean.
Bergen is ideal in so many different ways but particularly as your point of departure for an unforgettable fjord cruise.
At over 200 kilometres long, up to 1,300 metres deep and with numerous tributaries, the Sognefjord is the world's longest fjord. From the coast to the mountains, the fjord and its many branches offer a multitude of places to visit, notably Lavik, Balestrand, Vik, Leikanger, Sogndal, Gudvangen, Aurland, Lærdal, Luster and Skjolden.
Close to this enormous conglomeration of fjords is Northern Europe's largest glacier, the Jostedal. Fjærland (with its glacier centre) and Briksdal have particularly awe-inspiring views over this magnificent glacier.
Bergen offers a variety of scheduled boat trips both half-day and full-day tours. Enjoy the scenic harbour area or experience the magnificent islands and skerries in Solund and Bulandet. The scenery is breathtaking whether admired from a veteran or express boat.
The tall masted sailing ship – Statsraad Lehmkuhl, is Norway’s oldest square rigger. Join it on a scheduled cruise or hire it for a private gathering with dinner on board for up to 200 guests.
