Bergen, the ‘Gateway to the fjords’, is a well-established international city combining old-world history and tradition with the very latest trends in dining and shopping. Although physically a big city, visitors often remark that Bergen has the atmosphere of a small-town with the charm to match.
As with any major city, Bergen can offer the visitor many things to both see and do. The Fløibanen Funicular smoothly glides to the top of Mount Fløyen, one of Bergen’s seven mountains, from where you can experience a quite breathtaking panoramic view.
Down at street level one can wander around the colourful Bryggen port with its ancient wooden buildings so characteristic of Bergen. The old Hanseatic wharf is architecturally unique and is included on UNESCO’s list of world heritage of history and culture. The world-famous Fish Market is also nearby and is worth a visit for anyone with the palette to sample the very freshest of catches.
Welcoming visitors all year round, Bergen will cater for you and your crew and help to make your stay in the fjords an adventure to remember.
