Travel Planners of Scandinavia
Autumn Fjords Fairytale...

June 2007


Travel Planners of Scandinavia Ltd will have the pleasure of organizing a familiarization trip on behalf of the National MICE Marketing organization Norway Convention Bureau, SAS Airlines and the Bergen Tourist Board in Bergen from 7th to 09th September 2007.

More than 100 invited clients from all over Europe will be flown in to Oslo for a Welcome Reception & Kick off on the roof top of Oslo - on the Holmenkollen Hill before they fanned out to different destinations throughout Norway.

Approx 20 guests of these agents will then fan out to Bergen, on the 7th September for a 2 days program where Travel Planners of Scandinavia will produce and operate a program that will include amongst other things:

  • Tasting session at the famous Fish market,
  • Dinner on the mountaintop with panoramic views across the Bergen – The Gateway to the Fjords. 
  • VIP fjord excursion with a private cruise including an outdoor lunch at a desolate old farm located deep into the Naerøyfjord with 1700meter high mountains as the backdrop – featured on the UNESCO List.
  • Fjord Safari at 40 knots with Zodiacs,
  • Panoramic train ride with the steepest railway in Europe – the Flam Rail line
  • Helicopter flights across glaciers, mountains and fjords
  • Dinner at the breathtaking Solstrand Hotel & Spa

The City of Bergen, with its world famous fjords, is arguably the best developed incentive destination in Norway. Bergen has a wonderful mix of modern city life and historical architecture with unspoiled natural beauty as the impressive back-drop.

Bergen is known as the «city between the 7 hills» and as «the gateway to the fjords». The city is a former Hanseatic port and the birthplace of the famous composer Edward Grieg. It has a unique architecture, and Europe’s largest number of well kept wooden houses still in use. The harbor front Fish Market is truly world famous and a heaven for salmon lovers! The city has also been voted one of the cleanest and tidiest cities in Europe!

As «the gateway to the fjords», the city is the natural starting point for breathtaking fjord explorations. Both the majestic Sognefjord and the charming Hardangerfjord are easily accessible from Bergen on a leisurely day trip.

Bergen is the ideal incentive destination, offering the attractive combination of nature, culture and pulsating city life. In the period from May to July, the evenings are light and pleasant. Sun sets at approx. 23.00, but it never gets truly dark! The clear midsummer nights combined with the fresh air, the pulsating night life and the historic, picturesque streets, make Bergen one of the most exciting destinations to visit in the summer months!

Travel Planners of Scandinavia looks forward to handle the upcoming fam-trip and is excited about the prospect of convincing YOU how well adjusted the destination is to host upscale incentive travel programs.
