Buildings on Bergen Brygge in sunset
Sunset with orange and purple colours over Bergen in late summer.

The colourful wharves lean against each other and tell of Bergen's history of fishing and international trade over the centuries.

Beyond Bergen, the Norwegian fjords await. Deep blue fjord outcrops that dig through into massive mountain plateaus and high peaks. Ice blue glaciers over sheltered slopes filled with pinkish-white flowering fruit trees. And the city itself is charming. Close to the coast and fishing with boats in the harbour and fish in the market combined with artistic quarters and proud musical traditions. How about listening to Grieg in his own living room? 

Bergen is part fishing village and part metropolis, tucked between seven mountains. A good start to the coastal voyage - or a happy end.
