Bergen and Beyond

THE FACTS
Most travelers from the United States fly direct to Oslo and continue to Bergen via a short connecting flight or a super-scenic, seven-hour rail journey. Another option is to combine Bergen with a trip to London; the Norwegian carrier Braathens offers frequent flights. Also, an overnight ferry linking Newcastle and Bergen runs three nights a week (44-191/296-1313).
