Norway

Bareboat | Skippered | Crewed
The land of the mystical midnight sun and northern lights, majestic glaciers and fjords, vast wilderness, picturesque fishing villages and ancient cultures. With its surprisingly mild climate, this is one of the best places in the world to see the aurora borealis dancing across spring and autumn skies.

Start your yacht charter from Stavanger to ski & sail in Lofoten or in the Lyngen Alps, search for migrating whales in the Vestfjorden (West Fjord), drink arctic whiskey in Myken or immerse yourself in Træna’s magical music festival. Experience heritage and local delicacies on Vega, or the urban buzz of Tromsø, the Paris of the North. Arctic Norway is an adventure destination like no other.

Regions

The Cruising Ground

Southern Norway – Stavanger

There are steep mountains, deep fjords, and small islands along Norway’s long coastline, making it an ideal location for sailing. Plan your holiday around beautiful inhabited islands, such as Sjernarøyane, Kvitsøy, Utsira and Røvær, as well as the awe-striking fjords of Lysefjorden, Jøsenfjorden and Erfjorden. Throughout this sailing region, there are many sheltered places to anchor, either in marinas where you can get shore power and grocery shopping or in small, natural coves or specially constructed piers on the islands. Mountain hikes are an excellent way to combine sailing and nature. In the fjords, you can climb a 900-meter-high mountain or on an island, you can climb a 200-meter-high peak for a more relaxing experience.

Træna

The Træna archipelago is made up of over 500 islands, more than one for every resident, with four permanently inhabited. These distinctive saw-tooth mountains, accessible only by boat, are home to the Træna music festival every July, a magical one-of-a-kind experience of community spirit and wild nature under the midnight sun.

For the rest of the year, discover Stone Age history, mystical caves and white beaches, and the freshest seafood in ancient fishing villages. A trip to the caves on Sanna is a must. Sail north to Myken to visit the world’s first Arctic whiskey distillery or east to the massive Svartisen glacier, the only remaining glacier on the Norwegian mainland.

Lofoten

Lofoten is Arctic Norway’s playground – ski, surf, hike, indulge in fine cuisine or explore traditional and contemporary art, amid dramatic landscapes of jagged mountain peaks dropping straight into the sea. Seen from out at sea, the mountains are a 100km long, 1000m high wall known as ‘the wall of Lofoton’, but sail closer to find an archipelago of coves and valleys, fishing villages and farmlands, and even a football stadium and a golf course.

Ski off a mountain peak with a view of the ocean, play on the beach, or sink into a hot tub surrounded by snow before cooling off in the fjord and back into the tub!

Lyngenfjord

Towering alps and glaciers rising directly from the fjord, wildflower meadows, multi-cultural heritage and some of the world’s best off-piste skiing – Lyngenfjord is a land of contrasts and adventure. The Lyngen Alps are ideal for skiing & sailing in spring, also the season for the Northern Lights as they are directly under the aurora oval.

In summer, explore by mountain bike or island-hop to see reindeer grazing along the fjord and discover the handicraft and traditional music of the 2000-year-old Sami culture. Sail to Havnnes, Norway’s northernmost still-operating trading post with a village that is like an open museum.
