Travel to Bergen by bus

Bergen serves as a gateway to the Norwegian fjords. This town gives you an unique combination of culture, nature and interesting city experiences all year round. 

Bergen is a big city with a small town charm and has an atmosphere full of tradition and history.

Bergen - Gateway to the Norwegian fjords

The fjords are Scandinavias number 1. tourist attraction. This is one of the reasons to why Bergen is one of Europe`s largest cruise ports. 

The sea has crossed and crossed into Norway's long coast and given us a nature with many facets. Here the falls descend along the mountain sides, the everlasting snow shines at the top, the grass glitters down to the fjord. In the spring, blooming fruit trees become a gorgeous sight over the landscape. It is not without reason that the fjords are listed on Unesco's famous world heritage site. Between the longest fjord in the world and one of the world's most beautiful, Sognefjord and the Hardanger Fjord, Bergen is the best starting point for nature experiences.

The tour "Norway in a nutshell" gives you fjords and mountains in one day, all year and can be booked at visitbergen.com.
