Bergen is the perfect jumping off point to explore the many fjords that Western Norway is known for. This four-day round-trip itinerary from Bergen to Ålesund and back takes travellers on a thrilling, activity-filled adventure through some of Norway’s most beautiful scenery and fjords. From medieval stave churches in Bergen, hikes surrounded by majestic fjords, a drive up the famous Atlantic Ocean Road, and a visit to “Norway’s Prettiest Town”, this trip is perfect for those who love the outdoors and the dopamine hit you get from being in nature.
You'll start off in Voss, which is known for its pristine waters and you'll experience this firsthand with a dip in the crystal blue river. On day 2 you'll do some easy hikes, most notably on top of Mount Hoven in Loen. On day 3 you'll head to one of the most famous areas in Norway. Now Geiranger needs no introduction, but you'll see the famous postcard-worthy fjord from a different angle as you paddle away on a rented kayak and explore the calm waters for yourself. On your final day, you'll have a relaxed trip back to Bergen via the Huldefossen waterfall and a quick stop at the Bjørn West museum to learn about the resistance movement during World War II.
