Bergen has a ferry connection to and from the Continent. Fjord Line sails to Denmark and the ferry docks within easy walking distance of the city center. You can also travel from Stavanger and Bergen with Fjord Line.

Norway is ideal for round trips and tours with most of them including Bergen. If you are travelling to Bergen with your own car, all the roads leading to Bergen run through a fantastic landscape of fjords, mountains and waterfalls.

The Bergen Railway between Bergen and Oslo has been ranked as one of the greatest train journeys in the world. Many people take this train ride as part of Norway in a nutshell®, Norway’s most popular round trip.

Modern express boats with panoramic views take you up and down the coast and up the famous fjords – which are included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List of nature attractions. Express bus services also operate in virtually all directions. Enjoy the varied scenery on your way to Bergen.

Bergen is a turnaround port for the world famous Hurtigruten also called “The World’s Most Beautiful Sea Voyage”, which sails all the way up to the Russian border in the north. Spending a few days in Bergen either before or after your trip is a must.
