What to do in Bergen

This charming city has much to offer: the home of Edvard Grieg, a great aquarium open all year, a busy fish market and stunning views from Mount Fløyen, only a short ride away on the Fløibanen funicular.

Check out the Hanseatic Wharf, Bryggen, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Learn about Bergen's history in one of several small local museums, or just take a walk along and in between the old wooden houses.

The seven mountains surrounding Bergen offer great opportunities for walking/hiking trips exploring the surrounding fjord and mountain areas, within easy reach of the city centre.

During the long, bright summer nights, Bergen has a great outdoor concert venue that attracts many national and international artists. The club scene is also interesting, featuring both local and international artists.

What to do around Bergen

The Sognefjord is one of the world’s longest fjords, with charming and eye-catching villages dotted along the 204 kilometre-long fjord. The Sognefjord lies beneath the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, the largest glacier in mainland Europe. The Jotunheimen National Park offers plenty of activities in fantastic natural surroundings for all ages and all fitness levels.

The Nærøyfjord, another UNESCO World Heritage site in the fjord area, is the wildest and most beautiful branch of the Sognefjord, with sheer, snow-topped mountains, waterfalls and idyllic farms clinging to the mountainsides. It is 17 kilometres long and the narrowest point is only 250 metres wide.

The passage through Nærøyfjord is one of the most dramatic fjord trips in Europe. A ferry runs between Gudvangen and Flåm in summer, a truly scenic trip. Several guided tours are also available.

The Sognefjord is easy accessible from Bergen. Fly with Widerøe to Sogndal or go by express boat from Bergen to Flåm.

The Hardangerfjord is known for its many orchards. In May the fjord’s thousands of apple and cherry trees come into blossom, making for a unique sight. In the mountains towering over the Hardangerfjord you will find the Hardangervidda National Park, the impressive Vøringfossen Waterfall and one of Norway's largest glaciers.
