Norway - Bergen & the Southwestern Fjords (Chapter)
This is the Bergen & the Southwestern Fjords chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
If you could only visit one region of Norway and still capture the essence of the country’s appeal, this would probably be our choice. Two of Norway’s most engaging cities, dynamic Bergen and agreeable Stavanger, serve as gateways to dramatic fjord country here.
- stroll through historic Bryggen in Bergen, a Unesco World Heritage site
- climb to Preikestolen or Kjeragbolten overlooking Lysefjord
- restaurants & accommodation
- go for a glacier walk atop the ice-cap in Folgefonna National Park
