Travel Tips for visiting Bergen

The city of Bergen emerges between the ocean and mountains.

On the west coast, Bergen has the same assets as Oslo, offering both the grandeur of nature and rich cultural heritage.
The heart of this charming city is located around the harbor with the famous fish market of Torget Square and the Bryggen quay. 
This area and its houses from the Hanseatic era have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bergen is the starting point for a visit to the fjords, but it is not without its festivals and museums.
The European City of Culture for the year 2000, hosts around the lake Lille Lungegardsvann many art museums such as the one of Rasmus Meyers Samlinger which gathers the private collections of a patron.
From Bergen to Kirkenes, on the Russian border, the Norwegian coastline reveals the richness of its coastline, from its majestic fjords to its cliffs and its wild archipelagos.

A coastline that attracts many tourists in summer, attracted by the midnight sun, nature in its raw state, and pleasant temperatures.
But in winter, the northern lights, the cold, and activities such as snowmobiling, ice fishing, and the observation of the few animal species that can withstand polar temperatures, attract adventurers, eager for an unusual vacation. A destination that is not for everyone but that promises an extraordinary trip with attractions as varied as they are surprising.
