Surrounded by seven mountains and overlooking the sea, Bergen has some of the most impressive scenery in Norway. Whether you plan to use it as a gateway to Norway’s spectacular fjords or to take in the history and culture, you will not be disappointed. It’s the perfect spot to get your fill of both the natural beauty and old world charm this city has to offer.
As you would imagine, the mountain and coastal scenery around Norway is spectacular and I couldn’t imagine a better way to get around Norway with kids than by train. The more we researched getting from Oslo to Bergen, the more we knew the 7 hour journey by train was the best option for us. Seven hours may seem like a long time on a train with two small kids, but the Norwegians do it right.
