Norway Sailing Adventure to the Fjords and Back

16 May 2021
FIRST CLASS SAILING,
Sailing Yacht
North Europe
Fjords and Back - A fantastic opportunity to sail to Norway, explore the dramatic Norwegian Fjords and sail back.

This is a 16 day voyage on a 72ft steel yacht starting and finishing from Portsmouth. You’ll sail through one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, the Dover Straits, before heading up the North Sea to Norway where we will explore the outstanding natural beauty of the Norwegian Fjords. After 5 or 6 days of cruising you will sail back to Portsmouth. Sailing to Norway and back will log you about 1500 miles.

Depart Portsmouth and sail to Norway on Tuesday 4th May 2021
Arrive on the West Coast of Norway around 8th May

Spend 5-6 days exploring the West Coast/Southwest Coast of Norway
Depart Norway around 14th May
Arrive Portsmouth Wednesday 19th May 2021

POSSIBLE ITINERARIES IN NORWAY

Depending on the wind the aim will be to make Bergen or Stavanger or Kristiansund the first port of call. Bergen is a World Heritage City and nicknamed the city of 7 mountains. The area abounds with dramatic scenery and after a short stop the plan will be to explore the Fjords to the north or south. If the boat goes North maybe you will go up to Sognefjord, Norway’s longest fjord penetrating inland for 115 miles, between snow covered mountains that rise to 1,800m.

Stavanger is the third largest city in Norway and is known as The Oil Capital. The plan will be to quickly leave the bustle of the City and explore Lysefjord, a 26 mile long fjord that is over 1000m deep (that was some glacier!). You will see the breath taking Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) a 25m square mountain plateau 604m above sea level with 3 vertical sides.

After that the boat may sail north in the direction of Bergen through fjords with names like Stokksund, Korsfjord, and Bjorna. You may spend a night of the idyllic island Tysnes, you may visit Halsnoy, home to the Halsnoy Abbey – once one of the richest in Norway, and site of one of the oldest boats recovered in Norway and the Radiohola (radio cave) where the resistance hid during the Second World War.

Kristiansund on the Southern coast of Norway lies within a stretch of coast considered to be paradise by many Norwegians. There are lots of low lying islands and archipelagos and the water is usually warm enough for a dip! Lillesand is a day sail or so away and is described in the pilot book as ‘a narrow sheltered inner lead of almost unreal beauty’. Further round to the west is Egersund, a small fishing village with a statue of a nude nymph guarding the entrance to the harbour.

There are plenty of places to visit and whilst the skipper will take into account the wind and have the final say, you the crew will have a large input into where you go. When the time comes to depart it will be for a sail back down the North Sea, through the Dover Straits, along the Kent, Sussex and Hampshire Coasts back to Portsmouth.

One thing is for sure, when you sail to Norway with us, you won't get bored!
