CULTURE & SIGHTS in HORDALAND

Just outside Bergen centre, you will find a completely different Hordaland. A Hordaland far from the bustle of the city, where blue-green water, lush green hills and steep slopes are the ingredients and where the tranquillity is of another and more intense kind. You will find fjords and mountains everywhere, providing a natural framework for our county. Every day, 365 days a year, a Coastal Steamer ship leaves Bergen for Kirkenes.
