One of the best ways to explore Norway is along its fjords. Stop off at towns and cities along the way and learn about the region’s fascinating culture and history.
Known as ‘The City of the Seven Mountains and Seven Fjords‘, Bergen is a bustling port town placed on Norway’s west coast. As its moniker suggests, you’ll find Bergen to be a city that benefits vastly from its beautiful surroundings; the town’s timber houses climb the forested slopes above it, facing impressive fjords which are sheltered to the north, south and west by a series of islands.
Step into the fairy tale-like town of Alesund where sparkling fjords tower above turrets and ornate facades. Found on a narrow peninsula on the northwest coast, this unique Norwegian port is considered the most beautiful city in Norway.
