Transportation and Accommodations

Getting There

Bergen has an accessible airport, and visitors can use the Flytoget Bus to travel between the city and the airport. Alternatively, if visiting Oslo as well or interested in seeing the Fjords, arrive or depart by train using the Norway and a Nutshell route.

Getting Around

Bergen is a small city and easily accessible on foot.


Find a place to stay near the city center, or specifically walking distance from Bryggen. This is where you will likely spend most of your time and is the busier part of town.

Other Notes


It rains a lot in Bergen so set expectations properly in advance and pack for rainy weather.


One full day here is all you need as the city is small, and does not have a lot to keep you busy especially with bad weather. Overall, the city is cute and nice for a day but specifically is helpful for accessing the fjords.

Like some other cities in Europe, a lot of places are closed on Sunday, further limiting your options if visiting on the weekend.


Norway as a whole is a very expensive country, and is not a great travel destination if you are on a budget. Plan ahead, but be prepared to spend money. In Norway, the currency is the Norwegian Krone.
