Look out for the unmistakable Pulpit Rock, a flat-topped cliff with a 604-metre plummet into the fjord below – that’s twice as high as the Shard in London – and the fascinating Kjerag Boulder. Intriguingly wedged in a mountain crevice, this rock has become a popular spot for brave (or foolhardy) tourists to have their photo taken. Bergen, Norway The beautiful UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, with its colourful timbered houses and cobbled walkways, is the historic and cultural centrepiece of Hanseatic Bergen, though the famous fish market, Troldhaugen Museum and fascinating art galleries are worth exploring too.
