Bergen Guide

Located on the west coast of Norway, the city of Bergen lies on the peninsular of Bergenhalvoyen and is often referred to as the City of The Seven Mountains. The city, which mainly lies on the shore of Byfjorden, is an internationally renowned centre for shipping, petroleum and for higher education.

The Norwegian Fjords which surround the city have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the world's most spectacular natural tourist attractions. The Fjords are characterised by high, snow topped, steep mountains which surround them and are themselves deep and narrow. There is evidence that the area has been inhabited for centuries and today the area has a number of farms which some are by the fjords and some higher in the mountains.

Bergen is Norway's busiest and largest port. There are regular ferry services departing from the port to Hirtshals in Denmark. Passenger catamarans also run from Bergen south to Haugesund and Stavanger and north to Sognefjord and Nordfjord. Bergen is also the southern terminus of Hurtigruten, the Coastal Express, which operates with daily services along the coast to Kirkenes.

Stavanger Guide

Stavanger is perhaps the most international city on Norway despite only being the country's fourth largest city. The city is widely regarded as being the gateway to the Norwegian Fjords and is close to the Pulpit Rock, which is one of the most popular attractions in the region. The rock is so popular that it is estimated over 200,000 people hike to the rock each year, which is around 600 meters above sea level. Popular attractions in the city include the cathedral which dates back to 1150 AD and the old part of the city that has some lovely small, white, wooden houses. For visitors seeking a bit of culture the city has a good selection of bars, restaurants and cafes and is home to the Petroleum Museum. The colourful street called "Fargegaten" is a must see where old wooden houses have been painted in bright colours.

Located outside Stavanger, the town's port services ferries to Hirtshals in Denmark. Local ferries go to Tau and Kvitsøy, while fast passenger boats go to many villages and islands between the main routes from Stavanger to Haugesund and Sauda.
