Want to try coliving in a city that boasts of a relaxed, small-town charm? Bergen is the place you might be looking for.
Digital nomads who plan to kayak through fjords, Bergen is considered as the gateway to the fjords of Norway. The city earned this distinction as they are situated between two fjords—one of which is the longest in Norway. There’s a variety of cruises and other activities that are offered to make your stay in the city memorable.
Other than the fjords, Bergen’s iconic city views make you feel like you were transported back in time. In fact, a Bergen waterfront called the Hanseatic wharf features colorful architecture that dates back to the 14th century! It even became a monumental part of Bergen’s heritage and culture and eventually became a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The coworking scene is thriving in Bergen and coliving will soon rise. This means that access to the city’s most beautiful spots while hustling away as a remote worker is made even more possible. The country itself also has a thriving digital nomad community and you’re bound to meet your own community soon in Bergen.
