DAY 1: STAVANGER & LYSEFJORDEN
Start your journey in Stavanger, a great occasion to explore the city. Where you’ll find a typical cathedral, tiny shops and painted houses.
You can cruise to Lysefjorden. You’ll be surrounded by thousand-meter cliffs looming above you as it powers up the fjord, where seals slip through the deep water and wild goats graze on steep hills along the way.
You can also hike to Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) for a breathtaking view over the Fjord.
DAY 2: ROSENDAL
Breakfast onboard in Rosendal. This gorgeous little town is framed by mountains and the Folgefanna Glacier, meaning you can choose lots of activities... Hiking, skiing, heli ride, kayak... The area around Rosendal is a hiking and adventure heaven, while back in town you can explore the sumptuous gardens and architecture of the Barony, Scandinavia’s smallest palace.
DAY 3: HARDANGERFJORD-LOFTHUS
Cruising into the Hardangerfjord, where brightly painted villages are surrounded by green fields, waterfalls plunge off high escarpments, and orchards of apples, pears and cherries line the banks. If time allows, the yacht will venture all the way to Eidford to see the staggering Voringsfossen waterfall, while other possible activities include white-water rafting, canyoning, cycling, and hiking.
The evening will be spent in Lofthus, near the Kalrassen waterfall. In Lofthus, visit Hotel Ullensvang, where you can dine in the wine cave or swim in the heated pools.
DAY 4: BERGEN
Spend the day exploring Bergens. This colorful UNESCO city is famous for the color and life of its wharves, where colorful facades overlook the bustling fish markets, as well as its world-class museums, art galleries, and boutiques.
DAY 5: GEIRANGERFJORD
UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord is the third largest fjord in the world and cannot fail to astonish with its deep teal waters, snow-capped mountains, and sparkling waterfalls. This is often called Norway’s “fairytale fjord,” and it’s easy to see why, as this place has an ethereal beauty about it that conjures up tales of trolls and faeries and long-dead Vikings. Cruise to the Seven Sisters waterfall, go river rafting or climbing, or hike along forest paths of heart-soaring beauty.
DAY 6: GEIRANGERFJORD
Spend the morning exploring more of Geirangerfjord by yacht or kayak. Alternatively, the captain can organize for a car to meet you for a drive up the incredible Trollstigen mountain road.
In the afternoon, the yacht will make its way back along the fjord to Alesund, Norway’s prettiest city. Damaged by fire in 1904, it was rebuilt in colorful Art Deco style and is a delight to behold, with its spires and ornate towers.
DAY 7: DEPART FROM ALESUND
Early morning, walk up to Fjellstra Viewpoint above the town to admire the surroundings. Departure from the yacht.
