The charming city of Bergen is surrounded by seven fjords and seven mountains. Bergen centres its appeal around the Bryggen harbour-side district, a Unesco world heritage site which has many buildings dating from as far back as the 17th century.
Travel to Tromso
Tromso, or the 'Gateway to the Arctic', is located in the middle of the northern lights zone. This lively city is home to the world's northernmost university town and has more pubs per capita than any other Norwegian town.
Explore the remote Svalbard archipelago
This area, halfway between the north pole and mainland Norway, features spectacular scenery. Jagged snow-covered mountains, icy tundra, rugged cliffs and blue glaciers jostle for your attention. The largest island is Spitsbergen and the archipelago is dotted with fascinating small settlements, including former whaling stations and research centres. Wildlife is abundant. There is a great chance of spotting polar bears, walruses, colonies of sea birds, foxes, reindeer, seals and whales. Expedition cruises around the whole archipelago are possible in the summer months when the pack ice breaks up.
Visit the North Cape
The North Cape is one of the most northerly points of mainland Europe and is popular to visit in the summer due to the famous midnight sun.
