Stavanger, Haugesund and Bergen are historical cities on the Norwegian west coast - rich in culture, heritage and tradition. Fly British Airways to discover these three cities and the fjords in an unforgettable getaway.
Thanks to great connections between these three cities, there is no need to choose – you can visit all of them in one break and each city offers unique experiences.
Start your journey in Stavanger, the city famed for the Pulpit Rock, and continue from there with express bus to Haugesund, the viking city, and finish in Bergen where you will find the famous UNESCO listed heritage site, Bryggen, the Hanseatic wharf. Then simply fly back home from Bergen with British Airways.
Until October 2017, British Airways has daily departures from London Heathrow to both Stavanger (from £52) and Bergen (from £50). The flight time is less than two hours, and the airports are located only 30 minutes from the city centres - this means that no time is wasted in transfer.
You can also fly directly to Bergen from London Gatwick with Norwegian.
All three cities offer a wide range of cultural activities year around. They are also a natural starting point when you want to explore the stunning fjord landscape and enjoy an adventure with a scenic backdrop.
Both Bergen and Stavanger are former European Capitals of Culture, while Haugesund has a long, fascinating viking history.
In Bergen, Norway's second largest city, you can not miss Bryggen, the Hanseatic Wharf, featuring on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Enjoy the views of the city and the surrounding islands from Mount Fløyen, a short funicular ride away from the city centre.
Bergen also offers a wealth of exciting cultural experiences. A couple of suggestions are to visit the home of the composer Edvard Grieg or enjoy a jazz or rock concert in one of the clubs in the city centre.
Must-dos in Stavanger include a visit the Norwegian Petroleum Museum and the Cannery Museum, a stroll through the charming cobbled streets of Old Stavanger, and a taste of local food in some the city’s many excellent restaurants. Make sure you also find the time for some cultural experiences, for example a concert in the splendid concert hall.
Add a day, hike to Preikestolen and enjoy the magnificent view of the Lysefjord from a bird’s eye view.
If you are looking for even more adventures during your stay in Fjord Norway, take an express bus between Stavanger and Bergen and stop in Haugesund on the way to Bergen.
Haugesund is best known for its Viking heritage and the Viking village at Avaldsnes, but there are plenty of other attractions nearby to make the detour worthwhile. You can for example see one of the world's most scenic waterfalls, the Langfoss, or visit one of the charming little islands off the coast.
Visiting Hardanger in person is the only way to understand why artists have drawn inspiration from the surrounding landscapes with thundering waterfalls or colorful fruit trees in full bloom.
