Bergen – A Green Meadow Among The Mountains

Near the West coast of Norway, lies the gateway to the Norwegian Fjords – Bergen. Overlooking the vast sea, and clambering to the mountain sides, the big city with a lovely atmospheric small-town charm is ready to welcome any traveler, who wishes to feel the breeze of fresh air in their lungs, and see the unspoiled nature of the Fjords. Hadler DMC Scandinavia is the local Bergen partner to go to.

Bergen is Norway’s second largest city, but the atmosphere, the architecture and the passionate patriotic inhabitants give the city a true authentic feeling of intimacy. Since its foundation in 1070 by King Olav Kyrre, the city has attracted travelers from all quarters of the world. Merchants traveled abroad in ships and returned with commodities and new production methods, and Bergen slowly became a melting-pot of different cultures, and is today one of Norway’s most international cities.

Bergen has many wonderful attractions, accommodations, and restaurants – and an unspoiled nature which is just as breathtaking as it is beautiful. We have gathered just a glimpse of what the city has to offer for groups of any size.

A World Heritage City

Bergen is a 940-year-old city, and has a rich history, many cities can only dream of. Since its foundation, the colorful harbor, Bryggen, has been the centerpiece of the city, with its hub of commerce, seafaring, and craftsmanship. Now, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, this beautiful harbor has become a symbol of the cultural heritage for the locals that has been passed on through many generations. Bryggen is a great place for any group to visit during a stay in Bergen.

UNESCO listed the West Norwegian Fjords in 2005 on the World Heritage List. The fjords’ exceptional natural beauty is among the most scenically outstanding anywhere in the world. Numerous waterfalls and free-flowing rivers, deciduous and coniferous woodlands and forests, and a variety of terrestrial and marine animals are all what makes this an extraordinary location. A tour in the Fjords is a must-try for any group with time to enjoy the wonderful sights of gleaming lakes and sky-high mountains. Spectacular sightseeing tours of the Fjords can be arranged in many different ways, and can fit any size of group.
