Guide To A Yacht Charter In Norway

Apr 27, 2008
Norway is a rugged and mountainous country; with a great variety of natural features caused by very old glaciers and varied topography. The most fascinating of these are the fjords, deep grooves cut into the land that flooded with water. The possibilities for creating interesting itineraries are countless along the 1.200 nautical miles long coast. For sailors the North West Coast of Norway is a very special area with 24 hours of daylight in the summer and plenty of islands, fjords, high mountains and bays.

The Norwegian coast is a heaven for sailors with picturesque small towns and a coastline filled with islands.
The fjords and the mountainous landscape give the possibility for interesting itineraries that are unique along the 1.200 nautical miles long coastline.

The beauty of Norway doesn't only depend on its mountains and fjords but also on the variety of its islands, which makes sailing in Norway truly enjoyable. All you have to do is to come aboard a yacht charter, and then you can give yourself one unique and memorable holiday for you and your family.

Once you're in Norway, you'll never fail to ignore Bergen, one of the most popular towns in the country. Besides being a portal for yacht ports and the fjords, there are also many other interesting sights to see. For instance, you can catch the medieval architecture that made up the country's history (such as their magnificent cathedrals). You may also want to stay in one of their wooden houses that are scattered all over the city. Most of all, you can play along with amateur bands who are willing to take your requests for some Norwegian music.

Sailing in Norway is like paradise. But where to go? A good suggestion will be in the Norwegian South Coast region. By nature, the weather along this area is sometimes unpredictable. However, you can find many sheltered places along your charter. If you're sailing alone, you can anchor your boat close to any of the mountains near the fjords. Nevertheless, for safety purposes ensure that you have the right safety gear with you. Moreover, you must also be prepared for the strong gusts of winds.

Do you love to commune with nature on a holiday? You can always bring your backpack on the North West Coast part. There are many hiking and biking trails that you can find near the fjords. A good example is the one you can discover in Midsund District. The narrowness of Rorsethornet's edges can give you the kind of excitement in your holiday. You can also pass by the fjords until you reach the mountain peaks Midoya Island. On the way, don't forget to pick the spring flowers that decorate the entire mountains. Nevertheless, make sure that you bring along a trail map with you. It's better to have something to look at when you can't find your way home.

Certainly, there is more to sailing in Norway. You can also enjoy their music, gorgeous mountain peaks, and the challenges provided by the fjords and the seas that envelop the entire part.
