Norway

Dramatic Norway with her breathtaking fjords, wonderful wildlife and a myriad of islands proves this land of the midnight sun makes for a magical sailing destination.

View sailing schedule

With a coastline stretching from the North Sea to the Arctic, travelling by boat is the most efficient way to immerse yourself in the heart of this Valkyrien landscape. Norwegians maintain strong connections to their coasts and nearly everyone has a boat. Follow their footsteps as you join Bessie Ellen, Narwhal or Trinovante for a sailing holiday in Norway that you’ll never forget.

Majestic Fjords

National Geographic has listed the Norwegian fjords on the west coast as one of the world’s top tourist attractions and it’s easy to see why. Amazing landscapes provide everything you want from a fully catered sailing holiday with stunning scenery, well-mapped hiking trails and fabulous seafood.

Norway Stavanger street

Fairytale Streets

Stavanger gateway to the fjords is a fairy-tale town with quiet cobbled streets and wedding cake white houses by the drama of the Lysefjord. This imposing fjord stretches 40km inland rising vertically 3000m from the shore. Bergen and Hardanger regions are well known in Norway for their living cultural heritage on folk music, costume and dance.

Endless Sun

Often referred to as the “Land of the Midnight Sun” Norway’s northern latitudes make the summer days gloriously long and from late May to early August late summer evenings turn into long dusky twilights.

Norway Bodo Narwhal
Wildlife

The marine life here is abundant and plentiful and whales of most types abound here from the inquisitive Minke and Humpback as well as large pods of Orca. Regularly spotted from expedition yacht Narwhal, you may be lucky enough to encounter Norway’s largest whale, the Sperm Whale or the elusive Basking Shark.  With over 450 species, birdwatching is a highlight, from the puffins of Bleik to the migratory seabirds of Runde and Varanger.
