Embark on a fjord cruise from Bergen

Norway’s dramatic 2,000-kilometre coastline is one of Europe’s great attractions, and for more than 100 years the popular Hurtigruten fjord cruise from Bergen has been offering travellers spectacular fjord scenery. In fact, Lonely Planet called the Hurtigruten cruise along the steep mountainsides of the west coast of Norway "The World's Most Beautiful Voyage".

So it’s no surprise that fjord cruises in Norway are among the most popular tours from Bergen offered by Nordic Visitor.

Highlights of a Hurtigruten fjord cruise from Bergen 

The classic Hurtigruten coastal voyage sails south to north from the charming city of Bergen to the arctic town of Kirkenes, passing the stunning Norwegian fjords along the coast. It runs year-round, making it ideal to experience the midnight sun in summer or to enjoy Hurtigruten northern lights cruises in winter. A one-way Hurtigruten cruise from Bergen covering the full route takes around 6 or 7 days and the voyage stops at 34 ports of call, with a variety of shore excursions on offer.

Here are just a few of the things you can experience on a cruise starting from Bergen:

  • Walk around the city of Ålesund and admire its renowned Art Nouveau architecture.
  • Sail up the Geirangerfjord, past tumbling waterfalls like the Seven Sisters and Bridal Veil.
  • Stroll past the colourful wharf houses in Trondheim, the original capital of Norway until the 16th century.
  • See the beautiful Lofoten Islands, well known for its jagged mountains and quaint fishing villages.
  • Visit lively Tromsø, "The Paris of the North”, where many famous 19th-century arctic expeditions began.
  • Cruise along steep bird cliffs to the scenic North Cape, the northernmost point of mainland Europe.

What’s more, the comfortable boats are equipped with many of the amenities of larger cruise ships, such as outdoor hot tubs, a fitness room, different dining rooms and lovely indoor and outdoor viewing decks for bird watching.

Exploring Bergen before your fjord cruise: things to see & do

Known as the “Gateway to the Fjords”, Bergen is located between the longest fjord in Norway, Sognefjord, and another beautiful fjord, Hardangerfjord. The city makes a great starting point for exploring Norway’s dramatic coastline, but it’s also a fascinating destination on its own. Some of the attractions in Bergen you can visit include the old Hanseatic wharf of Bryggen with its colourful houses -- now a World Heritage Site, the lively Fish Market and the funicular to the scenic overlook on the top of Mount Fløyen.

Starting tours from Bergen: getting here by train or rental car

Nordic Visitor specialises in combining fjord tours from Bergen with scenic train rides and road trips in Norway. To get from Oslo to Bergen, we recommend the Norway in a Nutshell® train journey, which includes a ride on the famous Flåm Railway, a fjord boat trip and a drive on a steep, hairpin road in the fjords. Plan to spend at least 8 days in Norway if you wish to enjoy a train-cruise combo trip, which includes at least one full day in Bergen. Want to extend your trip? We can even tailor your itinerary to include travel to neighbouring Scandinavian countries.



Quick facts about Hurtigruten

  • Hurtigruten was founded in 1893 to transport cargo, mail and passengers between coastal towns
  • In the old days, Norway’s fjords made road travel difficult and sometimes dangerous
  • Hurtigruten means “fast route” in Norwegian
  • Today the cruise line is considered a leader in the “slow travel” movement

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

I did not realize how easy the travel would be

I did not realize how easy the travel would be, it was a great blend of being on your own and the privacy, but having a back up and someone to organize the transportation was great. I felt like I saw the most I could in 5 days.

Impressed with how well everything was handled

I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.  I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem.

Norway in a Nutshell® and the Pulpit Rock, July 2017

Truly was a trip of a lifetime!

All accomodations were perfect. All hotels were close to all the local attractions, easy to get to from the airport, train station, ferry station. All the rooms were ready when I got there, they were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast were really delicious. I am a vegetarian, and had plenty of options. My whole experience with Nordic Visitor has been exceptional, and I have been telling everyone of my friends how easy everything was. Sofia was very patient with me, and worked with me, to tailor the itinerary to my satisfaction, was prompt in answering all my questions. Everything was done over email, which I loved, because I didnt have to rely on my memory. All in all, Nordic Visitor rocks! This was truly a trip of a lifetime!
