Combined sailing and walking tours on this nice trip.
On Wednesday 18 of July our van is driving from The Netherlands to Hanstholm in Denmark. The ferry brings us to Bergen. In Bergen is our sailing yacht De Hilde Baudine. Your start for a beautiful vacation trough Fjord Norway!
Bergen is Norway's most international town, full of tradition and history. For part of the middle ages this city of seven mountains was the capital. The finest view of Bergen and it's surroundings is from mount Ulriken, after a cable car ride.
Along the harbor, you find the Bryggen. Bryggen is the most intact representative of an architectural tradition witch dates back almost nine hundred years. It's listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Bryggen has 61 protected buildings. The area houses a variety of businesses, including shops, studios, handicraft companies, restaurants and offices.
A few miles south of Bergen is the home of Edward Grieg. There is also a museum honoring the composer. Uniting Norwegian folk music with the new Romantic music of the continent, he placed Norway on the musical world map for all time.
Music lovers listen to Grieg and picture in their mind's eye fjords, mountains, green forests, rivers and trolls.
We sail to the most famous fjord of Norway, The Sognefjord. A cruise with De Hilde Baudine through this fjord will be a memorable experience!
With its snow-covered mountains and open fjord landscape, Balestrand has been a favorite holiday place for travelers through centuries.
Fjåerland and Suphellabreen
The landscape in Fjærland has been shaped by glaciers. The results are magnificent mountains and valleys. The glaciers Bøyabreen and Supphellebreen come down to the valley floor in Fjærland. These are branches of Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier on the European continent (487 km2). The lower Supphellebreen, at an elevation of 60 meters, is the lowest lying glacier in Southern Norway.
Busses are going to the glaciers and to the Norwegian Glacier Museum. Afterwards we can accompany a guide for a walk on the nearby Suphellabreen.
We can see the beautiful stave church from this town. Made the 12th century of wood.
If we have time left, we will sail to Flåm.
Ofcourse we can discover the Flåm Railway. An incredible train journey from
to the mountain station at Myrdal.
We are leaving this majestic fjord and sail back to Bergen.
You can take the Fløibanen funicular to the top of Fløy mountain, or the cable car to Ulriken’s peak, and take in a view of the city surrounded by fjords and mountains.
From Bergen the ferry brings you to Denmark. With our van* you arrive in Dronrijp (The Netherlands) on Tuesday 31 of July. It is also possible to take the airplane.
