Norway’s second city is a scenic delight, a historic treasure trove surrounded by mountains that tumble down to the sea. It’s also gateway to the country’s emblematic western fjords – a network of waterways flanked by soaring cliffs, waterfalls and picturesque villages. And, while it might be best known as a summer destination, in winter Bergen is just as magical. As well as those famous fjords, you can expect everything from Christmas markets to quirky attractions such as the world’s largest gingerbread town. You’ll explore it all on this short break, as you spend three nights at a city-centre hotel and head out on an included Norway in a Nutshell Tour for a magical fjord cruise and a journey on the ultra-scenic Flåm Railway.

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Fly to Bergen

    Fly out to Bergen and take the airport shuttle to the city centre, where you’ll check into your contemporary hotel. Located just a short stroll from the historic fish market and UNESCO-listed Bryggen Quay, and with a delightful park next door, it’s the ideal base for exploring Bergen’s urban delights. You’ll even get a light evening meal included in the price. Once you’ve settled in, perhaps take a stroll to the waterfront, or jump on the funicular to the summit of Fløyen Mountain for sweeping views of the city and its pretty surrounds.

    Stay: Thon Orion, Bergen

  • Day 2 » Norway in a Nutshell

    Today is a real trip highlight as you head out of Bergen on the iconic Norway in a Nutshell tour. It all begins with at city’s main railway station, where you’ll embark on a scenic trip along the Bergen Railway – the highest in Northern Europe – to Myrdal, passing shimmering lakes and mountains dusted with snow. You’ll then hop across platforms to join the Flåm Railway – the world’s steepest standard gauge track – for the spectacular descent to the shores of Aurlandsfjord. With some free time in Flåm itself, perhaps enjoy a beer-paired lunch at the excellent Ægir brewpub before cruising the World Heritage-listed Naeroyfjord. Finally, take the bus to the mountain station in Voss to rejoin the railway for the final leg back to Bergen.
