Photo Diary: Exploring Bergen, Norway!

The beautiful coastal city of Bergen is the perfect introduction to Norway. Surrounded by mountains and fjords, Bergen has the best to offer of both city life and outdoor adventure: spend the morning wandering the fish market on your way to see the adorable facades of Bryggen (the city's crown UNESCO World Heritage site), take the funicular up to the top of Mount Fløyen to enjoy the incredible view (or trek the 2-mile hike to the top, if you're keen), and enjoy a candlelit dinner at one of the city's amazing restaurants (check out 1877) - all in one day!! It doesn't hurt that during the summer the days are much longer! Safe to say, that no matter what you're in the mood for, Bergen has it - making it a great home base for exploring other areas of Western Norway!
