Bergen coastal area

Bergen is beautifully located on the western coast of Norway, surrounded by 7 mountains and steep hillsides with tiny, wooden houses and narrow streets. With colourful houses, the unique UNESCO Bryggen wharf dating back to the Hanseatic area, the idyllic waterfront, the open air Fish Market, the Funicular to Mount Floyen, Bergen is really worth a visit! Bergen is the ideal starting point for fjord tours and fjord cruises, as it is located midway between the main Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord.

What our customers say:

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all.
    I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour.
    Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
