Bergen is a charming city surrounded by mountains and fjords, including Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest. Set on a spectacular stretch of coastline, there's plenty to see and do in this beautiful corner of Norway. See itinerary ideas

The city itself has a long maritime history, revealed among the brightly coloured buildings of Bryggen, a UNESCO-listed wharf that once served as part of the Hanseatic League's trading empire. Wander around this picturesque collection of medieval homes, pause in pretty cafes and visit the lively Torget fish market.

In the city's downtown area, museums and galleries, including a collection of works by Edvard Munch, showcase the very best of Bergen's history and culture. But, it's the surrounding natural world that makes holidays in Bergen so special.

The Floibanen funicular railway, dating back to the 1920s, brings you to the top of Mount Floyen. At 320m high, it offers panoramic views across the port and the glassy waters of the surrounding fjords.

Indeed, no Bergen holiday would be complete without exploring the fjords themselves. Cruises and kayak tours bring you up close to deep gorges and steep mountainsides, brought to life in summer by the long daylight hours. The seven mountains around the city are criss-crossed with a network of hiking and biking trails, while nearby lakes and beaches provide the opportunity for a refreshing dip.
