Why Visit Bergen, Norway

The colorful Norwegian city of Bergen is a gateway to the majestic fjords and a real architectural and cultural treasure. The scenic city on the coast of Norway is a must while exploring the area.

Surrounded by one of the world's most spectacular tourist attractions, the Norwegian fjords which have now been included on UNESCO's World Heritage list, Bergen offers an incredible opportunity to see the Earth's most unspoiled tourist destination.

It is situated in between Sognefjord, the longest fjord in Norway, and Hardangerfjord, featuring snowy mountaintops, lush forests, and numerous waterfalls. Bergen is undoubtedly the best place to start your fjord travel!

Another thing you might not want to miss during your Bergen tour is the Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf. This is Bergen's oldest part of town situated along the eastern shore of the harbor. Its colorful and memorable buildings with gabled roofs that look like a snapshot from a movie set will give you a sense of the local culture.

Some other recommended cultural and educational experiences to add to your Bergen itinerary are exploring the Geirangerfjord village nearby or setting off on an exciting Hurtigruten coastal voyage. Another great idea is hopping on the panoramic Floibanen funicular ride for some spectacular views!

Make sure to also try the local cuisine on your Bergen tour, to get acquainted with the customs of the Norwegian kitchen. Because of the location and surroundings of the area, it is famous for fish, such as salmon or trout; therefore, don't miss the chance to try the Rokt Laks or Rokt Orret while in the land of fjords.

When in Norway be sure not to miss out on fairy-tale-like Bergen, a coastal jewel, undoubtedly worth admiring.
