A Break You Can’t AFjord To Miss

 
Bergen, Norway
Bergen, Norway
Jet2 and Jet2CityBreaks have announced an expanded programme of flights and city breaks to Norway and its famous Fjords for 2025 from Leeds Bradford Airport.

The programme of flights and city breaks to Bergen is now on sale, with more flights added in response to demand from customers and independent travel agents.

With four breaks on sale (up from three in 2024), the 2025 programme to Bergen from LBA is as follows:

· 2 x three-night midweek breaks departing on Monday 5th May and 12th May 2025.
· 2 x four-night long weekend breaks departing on Thursday 8th May and 15th May 2025.

The news comes after the companies’ 2024 programme of flights and city breaks to Norway commenced from the airport earlier this month (May 2nd), the first time that they have operated to Bergen in over 15 years.

As well as giving customers access to stunning Fjords such as Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord, the city of Bergen itself boasts a backdrop of spectacular mountains which are wrapped around a picturesque harbour lined with a variety of fashionable restaurants and bars.

This historic harbour district, Bryggen, is part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List and provides visitors with one of the world's most significant examples of the history and culture of a particular medieval settlement.

The Bergen programme is expanding in response to demand from customers and independent travel agents who are booking discovery-based experience holidays.

Jet2holidays’ ‘Discover More’ product range caters for this audience, which includes non-family bookings, couples and solo travellers, and includes destinations such as Iceland, Treasures of Turkey and Croatian cruises in addition to a number of famous city break and Christmas market destinations.

Discover More packages to Bergen include flights with Jet2.com, including 22kg hold luggage, as well as 3, 4 and 4+-star accommodation and ATOL protection for a £60 per person deposit.

Packages also include a full-day tour that features a boat trip along the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord from Flam to Gudvangem, as well as a spectacular mountain railway journey to Myrdal.
