Did you know that the world famous adventure with the costal express Hurtigruten along Fjord Norway to Kirkenes in the very north of Norway starts in Bergen?

Norway Costal Express Hurtigruten - Hjorundfjorden
Norway Costal Express Hurtigruten – Hjorundfjorden

All Hurtigruten the ships visits 34 ports on the return trip between Bergen and Kirkenes. You can join many excursions from the ports if you like.

The Hurtigruten terminal in situated in the center of Bergen. We recommend that you add a few days before and after the costal express cruise to explore Bergen and the Bergen area. Maybe go on a 2-day trip from Bergen too? There is too much to miss out if you just rush between the Bergen Airport and the Hurtigruten terminal.

The closest hotel is Scandic Hotel Bergen City, but we recommend that you also look into other hotels like Hotel Havnekontoret and Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Bryggen.

We also suggest day trips from Bergen like the Norway in a Nutshell and Express boat to the Rosendal Manor.
