The port city of Bergen, a memorable MSC Northern Europe Cruises destination, is sheltered from the North Sea by magnificent fjords and islands. Bryggen, its Hanseatic quarter, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, characterised by a strong Middle Ages heritage and colourful wooden houses.

MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including: 

• The Charm of Bergen Old District

• Fjord Cruise

• The View from Mount Fløien

Take an MSC Cruises excursion to the ancient Bergenhus Fortress to admire the Håkonshallen, a ceremonial hall built in the 13th century by King Håkon Håkonsson. Next, cast your gaze upon the Rosenkrantz Tower, one of the most important Renaissance monuments in Norway. Explore Bryggen – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and the historic Hanseatic Wharf, known for its brightly coloured architecture. Wander cobbled streets past gabled wooden buildings where you’ll discover restaurants, boutique shops, and artist studios.

See one of the most spectacular fjords in Norway on a memorable MSC Cruises excursion. Sail the Byfjorden and discover narrow coves, rugged mountains, and an array of beautiful islands. Be charmed by views of historic Bergen overlooking the atmospheric Vågen bay, before exploring picturesque Eidsvåg and its magnificent natural landscapes. 

Discover majestic Mount Fløien on an MSC Cruises excursion. This popular attraction offers views of the beautiful Bergen peninsula and the surrounding fjords and mountains. Take the famous Fløibanen funicular railway to the viewing platform where you can admire the spectacle below — see historical harbourside buildings, a network of neighbourhoods, and mighty ships docked in the port. Then, if you’re feeling truly adventurous, continue on foot up the mountain. Here, you’ll find paths, walking routes, and trails that offer glorious panoramas.

    The magic of the northern lights
    The magic of the northern lights

    A holiday in Norway is a dream. A dream along a fjord, the most evocative and characteristic natural formation of this land.

    The Geirangerfjord and the Nærøyfjord are listed as part of UNESCOs World Heritage Sites, but it's also worth mentioning the longest of all the Fjords, the 204 km long Sognefjordas well as the Hardangerfjord where cherry and apple blossoms can be seen on the cliff-side during spring.

    But a Northern Europe MSC cruise also means experiencing the spectacular beauty of the Northern lights; while those of you who travel in the summer can admire the spectacular midnight sun, once north of the Arctic Circle. A cruise to Norway also means discovering the culture of two ancient populations: the Vikings, not just pirates and warriors, but merchants, explorers and colonisers who, for over three hundred years until the 11th century governed Scandinavia and the northern Atlantic: and then, the Samis, the natives of these lands, dressed in multicoloured clothes with immense herds of reindeer, who have lived in the deep North for more than 10,000 years.

    Finally, watch out for the Trolls! Many of the places you will visit are named after these legendary creatures: Trollheimen, Trollstigen (with the spectacular Troll’s path), Trollhatten and Trollveggen.
