Luxury holidays in Bergen
When to go
Due to the surrounding mountains, Bergen exists in a rain shadow, so you could get showers at any time of year, but summer stays on a more even keel from May to August.
PlanesBergen Flesland Airport serves the city, about a 20-minute drive from the centre. It has direct routes all over Europe and one to New York, and from here you can easily ride the bus or light railway into the city centre.
TrainsBergen Station has arrivals from major cities in the country – the six-hour ride from Oslo to Bergen offers particularly spectacular scenes.
AutomobilesYou won’t need a car in the city, it’s compact and very walkable, but you might want to hire one for heading out into the hills and beyond (take extra precautions in the icy winters).
