Bergen – secondlargest city in Norway and gateway to the Fjords. Situated in close proximity to the North Sea and surrounded by seven mountains the city has plent to offer for both tourists and locals. 

We personally feel very blessed to call this city our home. The most appreciated quality of Bergen, is the immediate vicinity to nature. 
The nature surrounds Bergen from all sides – everywhere you go you are close to both the mountains and the sea. 

Rumors say that it rains a lot in Bergen. Yes – this is true, but even if you visit Bergen on a rainy day there is plenty to see and to explore. And the good news – all of the city´s finest attractions are within walking distance, making Bergen an easy to explore city.
