Bergen is called the Gateway to the Fjords for a reason, and once on board a boat, you get the perfect view of what Bergen and Fjord Norway is best known for – majestic mountains, deep fjords, glaciers, waterfalls and a culturally and historically interesting coastline. The capital of Western Norway is ideally situated between the two biggest fjords in Norway, the Hardangerfjord and the Sognefjord, and a wide range of day trips and half-day trips to the best scenic experiences in the region start at the historic Fish Market in the centre of Bergen.
If you want to more of an explorer rather than just an observer, Bergen has many professional activity providers and other guides who will accompany you on a great variety of experiences. Norway Active can take you on trips to well known attractions, and also to lesser known places than even few Norwegians know about. You can buy day packages that include activities such as rafting, cycling, a wind tunnel, fjord rafting and of course transport between these great experiences. There is no better way of exploring Bergen than doing activities that enable you to get as close to nature as possible. The tours from Norway Active can be booked online at en.visitbergen.com/things-to-do/tours/fjord-tours
