What we liked about it
here’s just a few ideas….
It would be hard to find as idyllic a city across the entirety of Europe… it’s location amongst the small Norwegian islands at the foot of the fjords is unmissable. Think Dubrovnik (if you’ve been) and you won’t be far out!!

Still not convinced? Here’s another one:
It’s a fantastic area to explore too, just take a peek at the Ulriken Cable Car to grab a panoramic view you’ll remember forever!!… but if you have kids, just be warned, you’ll have to prise them away from the amazingly colourful wooden harbourside (The Bryggen)
