Information for visiting Bergen

A few useful links:

  1. airlines: KLM / Delta through Amsterdam (Skyteam), SAS through Copenhagen (Star Alliance), Lufthansa through Frankfurt (Star Alliance), Norwegian from a range of European cities (but careful, they sometimes use small, out-of-the-way airports)
  2. Widerøe is the regional carrier, but they also run a search engine that puts together itineraries using the major airlines for international travel to/from Norway. They often come up with flight combinations that kayak, expedia, orbitz, etc. don’t find, and usually have better prices.

  4. Bergen weather
  5. route planner
