Norwegian Fjords and Islands

Fjords, mountains, waterfalls, glaciers, wildlife, scenery, whales, picturesque fishing villages, golden sandy beaches … Norway has all this and more – join us for a trip this summer, 2018 in the Lofoten Islands or summer 2019 in Fjordland and experience Norway at its best (from the sea)

The spectacular fjords and remote islands of Norway have been our destination for the past 10 years. The islands rise majestically from the sea to a height of over 1000 metres and white sandy beaches line the waters edge.  These majestic mountains are interspersed with many narrow fjords home to isolated and serene anchorages creating a great cruising ground for those of us lucky enough to have access to a yacht.  Fishing is the industry here as this is the worlds richest cod ground, and  there are many picturesque small fishing villages to visit nestled at the bottom of the steep mountains

The flora and fauna in the area are unforgettable, and we hope to see sperm whales, minke whales, puffins and sea eagles in their natural habitat.  We should even have a chance of catching our own dinner!

As with all our destinations, this area of Norway still remains unspoilt and off the beaten tourist track.  Getting there is easy if not direct – fly from UK to Oslo on a variety of carriers, and then take an internal flight from Oslo to Bodo, Bergen or Floro  (www.flysas.com , www.norwegian.no).  If you fancy extending your holiday, travel options also include the train with spectacular views and the Hurtigruten coastal steamer.     

Where you go on your trip will be totally dependent on the weather.  We aim to keep you and the boat safe at all times. 

We know the area really well, and whatever the weather we guarantee that we will choose the best places to go to make your sailing holiday unique, memorable and enjoyable.  Each trip on our website has a sample itinerary page of where we might go.  We do not offer courses, but are on hand to encourage you to put into practice what you already know and give you more experience.  We can also coach you in new skills
