Pictures from Bergen, Norway

Bergen Fish Market by Robin Strand, Visit Bergen

Enjoy pictures from picturesque Bergen –

the doorway to the Norwegian fjords. Bergen is beautifully located by the fjord, surrounded by 7 mountains.
You will find authentic areas with tiny wooden houses and narrow streets on the picturesque hillsides.
The old wooden wharf houses at Bryggen – a Unesco world heritage site, is the most famous sight in Bergen.

The heart of Bergen is the Fish market square, located in the inner part of the picturesque waterfront bay, the older part of the town.
A short walk from the Fish market you will find the Funicular; a steep railroad taking you to mount Floyen, offering a marvellous view of the town below.

Bergen coastal area

Bergen is beautifully located on the western coast of Norway, with easy access to main Norwegian fjords – the Sognefjord & the Hardangerfjord; the ideal starting point for fjord tours and fjord cruises.

The amazing coastal area of Bergen consists of several scenic island communities.
Until 1991, it was not possible to reach Bergen by car without crossing a fjord by ferry! Now several long tunnels & bridges ease the access to Bergen by car.

  • 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!

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.
