Fly from Aberdeen Airport to Bergen, the gateway to the fjords of Norway, and experience one of the world’s most unspoiled landscapes.
If you're an adrenaline junkie, or simply would like to explore the fjords from a different angle, why not try sea kayaking in one of them? You can do this on the Hardangerfjord in the beautiful Hardanger region.
Bryggen – The Hanseatic Wharf
Bryggen, the old wharf of Bergen, dates back to the 14th century and is an excellent reminder of the town’s business history. Since 1979, it has been on UNESCO's list of World Cultural Heritage sites. Today, Bryggen houses museums, shops, restaurants and pubs, and remains one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area.
Mount Fløyen is one of the seven mountains that surround the city of Bergen. A funicular system takes visitors to the top of the mountain to enjoy the incredible views of the city, and also to access further surrounding walking and hiking trails.
Enjoy hiking in the mountains? Be sure to walk up to Trolltunga, one of the most spectacular rock formations in Norway. Experience a breath-taking and unique atmosphere on an 11 km walk through untouched nature while crossing impressive remains of industrial history.
Various museums in and around Bergen provide fascinating insights into the history of Norway. There are also museums covering other topics such as the maritime industry, knitting, North Sea traffic, science, and many more.
