Resort Description

Panorama Hotel offers one-of-a-kind diving and majestic scenery on the western coast of Norway.

This quiet and peaceful 4* hotel is located in the beautiful, historic city of Bergen, often called "The gateway to the fjords". The rugged and beautiful archipelago to the west of the city offers some excellent diving adventures. Here the famous Norwegian fjords meet the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, creating a varied underwater world with steep drop offs and canyons, amazing kelp forests, sandy coves and exiting reefs teeming with life. 

When you're not diving, you can enjoy luxuriously cosy rooms, local food in the restaurant, a sauna with views of the fjords or a soak in one of two rooftop jacuzzis. Even the gym has panoramic sea views, with workouts taking place in a cube on the terrace, made entirely of glass.
