With its towering peaks and network of fjords, Bergen is the ideal Nordic getaway and Hotel Norge is at the center of it all. The 415-room hotel sits in the heart of the city overlooking Lille Lungegårdsvannet. Originally built in 1885, the building has undergone an extensive renovation inspired by its surrounding. Guests are immersed in modern, Scandinavian design and the scenery with floor-to-ceiling windows that highlight views of the mountains, the neighboring lake, and the streets below. After a day of cruising the waters of Byfjorden or exploring Bryggen at Vågen harbor, Norge's three floors of restaurants and bars offer a place to refuel and unwind with fresh, Norwegian cuisine made from ingredients harvested right from the local landscapes.
