Hordaland is a region of fjords nestled between high mountains (the Hardanger Plain) and the inlets and waterways that lead to the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Crystal clear waters, snowy mountains covered with greenery and a robust, active lifestyle sustain the people there.
Bergen's charm emanates from its wooden buildings, narrow streets and beautiful Bryggen waterfront as well as its location amidst the natural splendor of Norway. Bryggen has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its plethora of harbor buildings in a medieval enclave near the water. There's nightlife, too, and shopping, but don't miss the chance to tour it by day and see its character in full splendor. When you're done, take the Floibanen train into the clouds and view the scenery from the peak of Floyfjellets.
For idyllic scenery in a more rustic setting, visit Hardanger. If you're fortunate enough to be there in spring, you will witness the kind of color and beauty rarely seen on the globe. Snow-capped peaks, fruit blossoms, lush meadows and reflecting waters make it a living postcard. And when you're ready to 'take part' in nature, go to Voss, where the rafting, riding, fishing, mountain biking and hiking are just a handful of the many exciting activities that await.
Wherever you are and whatever you do, we feature accommodations ready to welcome you to rest and slumber until the next quest.
