Bergen, is a gateway to the fjords

The charming small town, built in the 11th century, became the most important crossroads for trade in Scandinavia during medieval times. Usurped by Oslo in the 19th century, Bergen has capitalised on its provincial charm for travellers who come here to discover the attractions of a historic city in a relaxed atmosphere deeply rooted in nature. Bergen is nestled in the valley between seven mountains served by two cable cars that provide a magnificent panoramic view of the city. Along the harbour are the colourful wooden houses of Bryggen's Hanseatic old town, the earliest of which date back to 1702.
Included in the itinerary : a tour of the city with a private guide.

Your hotel in the fjords

This is one of our favourite hotels in the fjords,
firstly for its very natural setting on the waterfront, but also for the rustic feel of the decor, which is steeped in tradition. Originally a private residence for wealthy Bergen merchants, the hotel comprises several wooden houses spread over a large park. It's the ideal place for those who relish the thought of clean air for a night, a weekend or even longer.
Things to do - Hike from your hotel, on foot or by bike, on journeys which can last from 40 minutes to four hours. The hotel also has wooden boats and kayaks for rent. Be sure to explore the picturesque and baronial garden of Rosendal Manor too.
The spa - is sublime with its large bay windows. It offers a range of natural treatments made with seaweed, sea salt or essential oils. The hotel also has an indoor and outdoor pool as well as a sauna and steam room. And for those who love an 'invigorating' swimming experience, try the ice pool or take a dip in the fjords!

Route

Everything is 100% tailored to you
DAY 1

Flight to Bergen

Flight to Bergen, a historic UNESCO World Heritage Site. The atmosphere of this former Hanseatic port surrounded by nature is very pleasant, cosmopolitan and lively. You'll stay in a hotel that has the best views of the historic district and harbour.

DAY 2

Bergen

You simply must take a stroll around the old Hanseatic era harbour, Bryggen, and visit the museum that brings the 18th Century merchant league 'kontore' (counting house) back to life. Mariakirken (St. Mary's Church), built in the 12th and 13th centuries, was the church of German merchants for a long time. And have you ever heard of Dolk, Norway's best graffiti artist? He was very active in the town and it still shows. Troldhaugen, the former home of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, is now a museum dedicated to the composer of Peer Gynt. The Leprosy Museum, housed in St. George's Hospital (18th century), may not appeal at first glance, but it is truly fascinating and chronicles how the bacterium responsible for the disease (Mycobacterium leprae) was isolated in Bergen by Gerhard Armauer Hansen in 1873.
In the itinerary: a private tour of the Hanseatic district of Bryggen, the fish market and the Old Town.

DAYS 3 & 4

Os

Now it's time to head off to Os on a fast boat (one hour). Enjoy a first-hand experience of the fjords from a hotel bordered by water and nature, with a splendid view of the glacier. Located on the banks of the Bjornefjord, the hotel was built in 1896 in Swiss chalet style. Everything there recalls the pure and pleasant Belle Epoque. Your room is simple and comfortable, overlooking the garden, fjord and glacier.
Included in the itinerary: entry to the spa to experience bathing rituals.

DAY 5

Return flight
