Bergen, Norway situated on the southwest side of the country, is home to just shy of 300,000 people as well as some breathtaking views. The city is surrounded by mountains and the world’s deepest fjords. Fjords are deep inlets between high cliffs or extremely steep slopes. This historic city reaches its warmest time between July and August, only climbing to about 60⁰F (15⁰C). Bergen was named a UNESCO heritage city and it brings in visitors for everything from amazing cuisine to beautiful views.

When arriving in Bergen make sure to take in the beautiful views. For those who enjoy being outdoors head right Mount Floyen. Floyen has a funicular, a cable car, that will take you right from the city center to the top of the mountain. Here you can see everything from the nearby islands to the surrounding mountains. From here many go hiking, mountain biking, zip lining and much more. Bergen also boasts the beautiful Bryggen wharf. This area hosts shops, galleries, restaurants and even secret passageways. Built in the 18th century, this part of the city has a row of colorful, historic and memorable buildings worth visiting.
For the days that it rains, which is about 231 days a year, head inside to the museum of Bryggen to learn all about the famous fire and the medieval times. For a look at the famous fjords, jump on the express boat where you can see a beautiful waterfall along with the Aurlandsfjorden. With Bergen having so many rainy days, one of the most popular things to do is head to Vannkanten aqua park. This park has over 90 shops and restaurants as well as pools and even an ice rink!
