Bergen is a charming old city with a young outlook. As you fly into Bergen, you’ll see the stunning cliffs rising out of the sea and the fjord surrounded by majestic mountains. In the Middle Ages, Bergen was the largest city in Scandinavia and it wasn’t until the 1830s that Oslo’s population overtook that of Bergen. However, Bergen retains its status as an important port city. The dramatic scenery, a lively music scene and a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere make Bergen a very popular destination.
The small town of Haugesund offers a broad spectrum of natural beauty, ranging from a vast and wild coastline to snow-capped mountains with cascading waterfalls flowing into the fjords. It is known as the Homeland of the Vikings, as the area used to hold the royal seat of ancient Viking Kings. Today it is a prime travel destination that encapsulates everything Norway has to offer: fjords, waterfalls, mountains, rugged coasts, and an eclectic city culture full of fascinating history and a forward-thinking spirit.
Oslo is one of the wealthiest cities in Europe, thanks to the country’s thriving oil industry. This is visible in its glass-covered skyscrapers, its new subway and, of course, in a whole bunch of trendy restaurants, bars and shops. This beautiful city is situated right next to the Oslo fjord and is constantly expanding and developing.
