Our sailing holidays in Norway on Stella Oceana are of wonderful, unique and awe-inspiring encounters. Immerse yourself into the natural, dramatic landscapes of the Norwegian fjords, islands and coastline as you experience living as a community aboard this purpose-built charter boat. Her sailing voyages are a social activity, meeting new people or sharing amazing memories with friends and family. Stella Oceana is predominantly a charter yacht available for whole boat charter sailing in Norway. She does hold open a few voyages each month that are available for solo travellers, couples or friends to book individual berths. 


Soaking in the natural wonders of Norway while relaxing in pure comfort is at the top of Stella Oceana’s offering. From the hot tub on deck (yes, you read that right!), to an outdoor kitchen for cooking our very own catch of the day (fishing rods/lines are included if you fancy a go) to a spacious saloon below decks, there are plenty of opportunities to relax under sail. There are also two kayaks and two stand-up paddle-boards for guests to use so you can explore the nooks and crannies of the coastline.

The professional crew are always on-hand to provide a high quality service to guests. Stella Oceana does have a gaff ketch rig but the majority of her fjord sailing will be done under motor due to the changeable wind directions. For longer sailing voyages along the Norwegian coast, there will be more opportunities to sail. The crew welcome guests to get involved if they would like to but this is not at all expected. The only expectation is that guests have the most relaxing adventure in Norway!


Both above and below decks, Stella Oceana is not short of comfortable spaces to relax in. The exterior deck is split into two levels. The upper deck has seating for al-fresco dining under the stars and an outdoor kitchen for BBQ feasts. The main deck is home to the boats pièce de résistance – a hot tub. Channel your inner Wim Hof with a quick Arctic dip before retreating to the warmth of a luxury 8-person hot tub on deck. Guests are also invited to practice yoga, meditation or just simply sit back and soak in the breath-taking views. 

Below decks, the space continues with a high-ceiled large saloon housing a dining area, large corner sofa, bar, coffee machine and even WIFI. The private cabins are made up of two twin bunks and a four-berth cabin all sharing a shower and toilet. Each cabin has wardrobe storage space, adjustable heating and a natural light hatch with all linen and towels included.


Inspired by northern Norwegian traditions, the menu is ever-changing while using local, ethical, fresh and organic produce. A popular activity aboard is to run fishing rods and lines while moving through the fjords so anything we catch can be served up fresh for dinner! There is a dedicated chef on board to cook all meals with snacks, hot drinks, juices and clean arctic water available throughout the day and all included in your ticket price. An onboard bar sits to the end of the saloon with alcoholic drinks on a tab system.

Whether you’re a family or group of friends looking for a skippered boat charter in Norway or a couple looking for a more intimate Norwegian fjord cruise experience, sailing with Stella Oceana offers the perfect skippered sailing holiday. Discover secluded fjords, Arctic landscapes, amazing wildlife and all while relaxing onboard a comfortable, custom-built charter vessel.
