Course / Cruises / Mile Builder
Are suitable for all levels of sailors from the beginner to the budding Yachtmaster and provide an opportunity for everyone to explore some of the many Fjords and islands that abound on the west coast of Norway. For those who wish to complete an appropriate RYA course, they may do so with no additional cost. Many of our cruises start in Bergen, providing easy transport options. The Harbour is in the City centre just a couple of minutes walk from the Airport Shuttle bus stop. Alternatively, our base in Stongfjorden is by the Express Boat route north from Bergen and we’ll collect you from the ferry, it couldn’t be easier. Each trip will also incorporate 60+ mile an overnight passages.
Aquilo our Scanyacht 391 will be in the Harbour in Bergen the night before the cruise starts. You may join her then, staying aboard overnight, or the morning the cruise starts. With everyone aboard we will start our sail North to Stongfjorden, our destination, staying overnight on the yacht at different harbours or anchorages. Our exact route is not set but will possibly be Gulen, Nara, Hyllestad, Bulandet and Stongfjorden/Askvoll, from where there is a fast catamaran service back to Bergen, a spectacular trip in itself.
This year we will be sailing north into the Arctic Circle up to the Lofoten Islands, once more and whilst the scenery is staggering along the whole of the west coast of Norway it simply gets better on the way up to the Lofotens. The trip will be in two 7 day legs each way, with a 7 day trip from Bodo to the Lofoten Islands and back with a break in between each leg.
Meals on board are included from breakfast on the morning the cruise starts to Lunch on the last day.
RYA courses may be combined at no extra cost.
