Yacht charter in Norway
Sailing Yacht Charter in Norway is associated with endless fjords , skerry gardens, beaches, secluded nature or exuberant liveliness - Norway can offer both peaceful nature retreats and places plenty of life. The same is true for o the weather. Flat winds and heavy down – gusts, you may encounter both while sailing through one of the long fjords. This is a spot for experienced sailors.
The Lofoten islands in the north of the country offer a scenery of unique beauty. If you are lucky enough, you can watch whales and seals. The midnight sun between may and July is a special experience. We recommend an excursion to the National Park Anerdalen on Senja island, where you find endless forest, up to 500 year old pine trees and with some good luck a reindeer.
South of Bergen, the coastline is extremely rugged, the fjords are just spectacular, with many scattered islands. There are plenty of mooring facilities, usually sidewise at a jetty. No problems with space anywhere. The area is well protected, with short distances between marinas or anchorages. Mooring fees are fairly low.
Fornebu Marina is another good starting point for Norway - yacht charter. The Marina is located at the innermost Oslo Fjord. With an overall length of 100 km and 40 embedded islands, this fjord offers a lot of variety, which makes it an ideal sailing area.
