It’s raw, rough, and full of contrasts. It’s the time of year when Fjord Norway shows its mystical and magical self. It’s what we call the Viking season.
Bergen, Ålesund, and Stavanger are ideal starting points when you want to explore Fjord Norway. Because they are the largest cities in the region, they are well-connected with the rest of Europe through direct flights. A short ride by train, boat, or bus is all it takes to go from urban life to quiet countryside or prime wilderness.
Weather conditions can cause roads and mountain passes to close during heavy snow and strong wind. When visiting Fjord Norway at this time of year, we therefore highly recommend that you use public transportation.
Duration: 2–7 days
Combine bustling city life and peaceful nature in Bergen – the city between the seven mountains. Take the train from Bergen to the charming fjord village of Flåm, which is surrounded by steep mountains and frozen waterfalls. Join a fjord cruise, a rib safari, or a guided snowshoe tour. The Flåm railway – named the world’s most incredible train journey by Lonely Planet – is an attraction in itself.
Myrkdalen ski resort, situated less than a two-hour drive from Bergen, offers a wide range of courses, terrain parks, and off-piste slopes.
