Into the Fjords

Bergen & Balestrand
You stay in comfortable hotels where you will find a warm welcome. Norwegian hotels do not have star ratings, but those in our selection are typically of 3- or 4-star standard. In Bergen your stay is on a bed-and-breakfast basis so that you can take your pick of the many restaurants.

Clarion Hotel Admiral, Bergen

Meal arrangements: breakfast only

Clarion Hotel Admiral
Situated right on the water’s edge overlooking the Bryggen, this hotel is housed in a historic warehouse dating from 1904 and is within easy walking distance of all the main sites in this fjordside city. The modern twin or double bedrooms are decorated in warm colours and should you wish to have a view over the water, you can upgrade to a superior or deluxe room. Breakfast is taken in the restaurant overlooking the Bryggen and in warm weather you can even eat out on the terrace over the water.


Clarion Hotel Havnekontoret, Bergen

Alternative accommodation
Meal arrangements: breakfast only

Clarion Hotel Havnekontoret
This elegant hotel is housed in a 1920s Neo-Classical building in the historic Bryggen area of the city. All the modern rooms include views over Vågen Bay or across the hotel garden. Guests can relax in the library-lounge, enjoy views over the harbour from the rooftop terrace, or indulge in the sauna or gym. The hotel also provides complimentary tea/coffee, afternoon pancakes or waffles and a light evening meal.


Kvikne’s Hotel, Balestrand

Meal arrangements: dinner & breakfast

Kvikne’s Hotel
This large hotel first opened its doors in the 18th century and has been run by the present owners’ family since 1877. Surrounded by pleasant gardens and framed by wooded slopes, it sits right on the shores of the fjord. The atmospheric lounges (one of which is furnished with finely carved ‘dragon-style’ furniture) and high-ceilinged restaurant make the most of the impressive views. You can also enjoy the vista from your bedroom; we include fjord-view rooms with a balcony in the modern building. For extra atmosphere, you can upgrade to a fjord-view room (without a balcony) in the historic part of the hotel.
