THE FJORD COAST

Explore pure, untamed nature

The mighty forces of nature have shaped the coastal landscape north of Bergen for thousands of years, creating hiking trails that combine mountains and sea.

This makes for some very Instagramable locations!

Visit Kråkenes lighthouse, where you can spend the night and get up close to the strong forces of nature.

Climb iconic mountains like Lihesten and Alden, a coastal landmark that rises almost straight up from the sea! Alden's shape has given it the nickname 'The Norwegian Horse'.

Experience the Fjord Coast

Adventure awaits where the sea meets the fjords north of Bergen.

The Fjord Coast offers many exciting activities all year round, both above and beneath the sea. Explore everything from narrow straits and fjords, and skerries in the open sea, to mountain hikes and coastal trails.

Surrounded by sea and fjords, the region provides the perfect conditions for fishing holidays, all year round. Spend the night close to the sea, with easy access to good boats and facilities for preparing and storing your catch. Your hosts will be happy to advise you on the best fishing spots in the area.
