Bergen is a beautiful area, only two hours from Britain, says writer
The Norwegian port city of Bergen is the gateway to some of the country's most fantastic sites, its fjords.
According to travel journalist Nick Boulos, writing in The Daily Telegraph, the natural features will leave people on adventure holidays "lost for words".
Bergen is a particularly good location to view the "breathtaking" long, narrow inlets, the travel writer opined.
"Norway's second city and gateway to the fjords, Bergen retains an intimate small-town feel," he wrote in the national news publication.
"With a network of deep, narrow inlets sprinkled across the coastline, each reflecting the soaring snow-capped peaks that soar from the shallows, Norway's fjords are the stuff of legends."
Fjords are made by glaciers over thousands of years. People planning adventure holidays may wish to travel down the amazing natural features on a boat.
Other holiday destinations which are popular for their fjords include Iceland, Kola Bay in Russia, Alaska and Chile.
