Welcome to the gateway to the Vikings and scenic fjords! Charming and colorful Bergen is not only one of Norway’s most popular tourist destinations, but also one of its top attractions is its fjords. The city of Bergen is also known as the “gate of the fjords”. Its proximity to nature makes the city an ideal destination for short and long tour excursions, where you can experience Norway’s stunning nature landscapes and seascapes. Stepping into the same lands once occupied by the daunting Vikings will enthrall history buffs.
You can see classic Norway in a nutshell on a day trip packed with attractions such as the UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord fjord and the exciting Flåm Railway, one of the steepest standard railways in the world.

When you get here, close your eyes and imagine a land filled with famous Viking explorers.
Surrounded by mountains, Bergen also offers excellent hiking opportunities. With a short seven-minute ride on the Fløbanen cable car, you can reach magnificent marked hiking trails. Alternatively, one of the paths takes you to the Ulriken cable car to the top of Bergen’s seven mountains, giving you spectacular views of the surrounding sea, islands and fjords. As you look down, you can imagine a mighty Viking ship sailing through the waters. Bergen offers a natural and rich cultural life to be explored.
