Nature and Recreation  

The Bergen Region has reason to be proud of its fjords and mountains, not only providing a beautiful backdrop but also facilitating a great variety of exciting outdoor activities all year round. Living in the Bergen Region, you are in close proximity to nature no matter where you choose to settle, a great perk of living in the region. Spectacular hiking, biking, golfing, swimming, watersports, climbing and skiing, as well as a variety of extreme sports are some of the activities offered in the region. The region even hosts its own Extreme Sport Week each June.
