The small village of Ulvik has about 1000 inhabitants and lies from the end of the Ulvik fjord up to 1800 meters above sea level. It is accessible by air through the Bergen airport (two hours away), then by train, at the highest railway station in Norway (Finse - 1222 meters - on the Bergensbanen route). Although small, Ulvik is still a destination for foreign cruise ships, especially in the summertime. Besides the fjord, the visitor could visit the old church dating since 1858 and decorated by Lars Osa with traditional rose painting. Ulvik is also host of Hjeltnes Gartnarskule, the oldest Norwegian horticultural college; guided tours of the park and rose gardens are available for groups, who can also ask for an overnight stay.
Oslo abounds with sights of interest, such as museums, parks, urban districts with listed buildings and a well-developed array of shops. As most sights are within walking distance of each other, you can leave your car behind. Oslo City Hall is located in the city center only a few hundred meters from the city's main street and overlooks Oslo Fjord filled with moored pleasure craft, shrimp trawlers, cruise ships, charter boats and ferries to all the islands. Oslo has a wide variety of restaurants, bistros and bars. Most are located within such a limited area that they are within walking distance of each other. In addition, each quarter of the city has an unusual atmosphere all worth visiting.
Considered "the town of all towns in Norway" by locals and not only, Bergen is a great city with tradition and one of the most important economic centers in Norway. The famous hanseatic wharf of Bryggen will meet the tourists coming here by sea; tradition is the key-word in Bryggen, rebuilt in its initial form after many fire destructions; that's why it was named by UNESCO a World Heritage City. Bergen's natural scenery is amazing: the surroundings seven mountains offer scenic views and are accessible either by cable car of funicular railway; the unique fjords: Hardangerfjorden, Sognefjorden, Geirangerfjorden - invite you to a breathtaking boat trip. Bergen is also a cultural city and the splendid houses - today museums - of the famous composer Edvard Grieg and violinist Ole Bull are living proofs.
