Yacht charter in Norway means endless fjords and skerries, beaches, lonely nature, quirky life – Norway offers peaceful spaces and variety at the same time. The same applies to the weather. Doldrums and heavy fall winds – you may encounter both on your sailing trip through the fjords that cut deep into the country. A territory for experienced sailors!
In the north of the country, the Lofot islands offer beautiful landscapes. With some good luck you may see whales and seals. The midnight sun from May to July is a special experience. We recommend a land excursion to the Anerdalen National Park on the island of Senja where you can discover 500 year old pine trees, endless forests and may be even reindeers.
South of Bergen,you will experience an exceptionally rugged coastline with spectacular fjords and scattered islands. There are sufficient mooring options, mostly on the side of a jetty. The area is well protected, ports or anchorages are always close and easy to find. Mooring fees are reasonable.
Another starting point for Norway – yacht charter is the Fornebu Marina, located on the inner Oslofjord, which is 100 km long. The approximately 40 islands in the fjord offer an ideal, varied sailing area.
During the summer months mild weather with moderate winds predominantly from western directions. Occasionally low pressure areas come through, but less frequent during summer. In the fjords, the crew should be prepared for fall winds. Tide differences vary between 2m and 2.70m.
Norway has over 50 airports serving both international and domestic routes. There are direct flights from European airports to Oslo, Bergen and Tromsø. There are ferry connections with Denmark and Sweden. Many people prefer to travel by car through Finland or Sweden – this gives additional freedom of movement, as well as the opportunity to get to know more about the countries along the route of travel.
