Ports

Bergen is the gateway to the Fjords of Norway and a well-established cruise port. It's an international city packed with history and tradition, a big city with small-town charm and atmosphere. Stroll around old streets and alleyways, and mingle with the crowds at the Fish Market. Saunter along the listed wooden buildings at Bryggen to the old fortress at Bergenhus, or call in at one of Bergen’s museums and galleries. The panoramic views of the city, the fjord and the ocean are breathtaking.

Træna is a group of islands in the Norwegian Sea. Trina municipality consists of over four hundred islands, four of these are populated. Originally Træna was a community of fishermen, today the islands inhabits five hundred people. In Træna you will see nature that is really one of a kind. Every year a cave as big as a church (Kirkehelleren) hosts a music festival. Don't forget your camera!
