Accommodation
Thon Hotel Bristol Bergen
DAY 2
BERGEN AT LEISURE
Sunset over Bergen from the top of Mt. Fløyen

Enjoy a free day in this vibrant city. A stroll through picturesque Bryggan with its iconic, tilted houses and concealed maze of wooden walkways is a must do for any visitor. When lunch time rolls around, the nearby Torget Fish Market is an excellent place to sample fresh seafood. We also recommend a ride up to the top of Mt. Fløyen on the Fløibanen funicular for sweeping views of this fjord-side city. (B)

Accommodation
Thon Hotel Bristol Bergen
DAY 3
BERGEN TO FØDRE
River Gaula on Gaularfjellet National Scenic Route

Pick up your hire car and start your Norwegian road trip, heading out of Bergen towards Fødre. The drive today will take you through varied coastal landscapes, past forests, through valleys and over mountains. Perhaps, stop in for a visit at the Sunnfjord Museum, just outside of Fødre. If you have time, the Scenic Route Gaularfjellet is a drive which offers up fantastic waterfalls. Overnight in Fødre. (B)

 

Speak to your Regent Norway specialist if you are interested in extending your stay in the area to have more time to enjoy the spectacular Sognefjord (the largest Fjord in Norway) or to do a tour of the Jostedal Glacier.

Accommodation
Thon Hotel Forde
DAY 4
FØDRE TO MÅLØY
Kannesteinen Rock near Måløy 

Drive from Fødre to the small coastal town of Måløy today, perhaps making a stop in the idylic town of Florø, Norway's westernmost town. Kalvåg Village is also well worth a visit; this fishing village features traditional rorbu huts, an interesting art gallery and phenomenal seafood. Måløy itself is quite small, but natural attractions just outside the town centre are worth the visit. The 1.5 km long stretch of fine white sand at Refviksanden is one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, and the characteristic Kannesteinen rock, formed by the tides over thousands of years, is an impressive sight to behold. (B)

Accommodation
