Bergen is set on a peninsula between seven snow-capped mountains and near Norway’s longest fjord, Sognefjord. The city is great to explore on foot, and it’s charming wharf area boasts rows of colourful timber buildings and cobblestone streets that make for excellent photo opportunities.

One of the things that Norway is best known for are its impressive fjords. These long, narrow sea inlets have steep sides and were originally formed by glaciers. The country’s longest fjord is 205 kilometres long and is nicknamed ‘the King of the Fjords’. On our holidays to Norway, we’ll have the opportunity to explore one of these natural wonders by boat with a two hour fjord cruise along the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Nærøyfjord. Sailing down the deep blue water with towering mountain peaks looming over us, we’ll be in awe of nature’s incredible beauty.
Just south of the city of Bergen, Hardangerfjord is Norway’s second largest fjord at 179 kilometres long and arguably one of the country’s most picturesque. Once sailed upon by Vikings, this fjord not only has an interesting history, but boasts impressive natural features including glaciers and waterfalls. It is one of the most famous fjords of Norway, and originally became a tourist destination in 1875, when weekly cruises began running between the fjord and London. On our holidays to Norway, we’ll enjoy a full day excursion driving along the Hardangerfjord to Hardanger.
On our trips to Norway, we’ll walk in the footsteps of Vikings, explore some of the most breathtaking scenery on earth and immerse ourselves in the unique culture of this stunning country.
