IDYLLIC HERDLA - 45 MINUTES FROM BERGEN
Biologen is a historic building dating back to 1922, now transformed into a modern hotel in the beautiful surroundings of Herdla, just 45 minutes from Bergen.
Originally functioning as a marine biological research station, Biologen hosted both international scientists and royalty in its earlier days.
