(09 August - 23 August, 14/16 days, from € 1075,-)
Norway - The Netherlands
sailing trip in Scandinavia will be number 4. Your departure from Dronrijp
(The Netherlands) to Norway is on Thursday 9 of August. You will drive with
our bus from Dronrijp to Hanstholm (Denmark). We have arranged cabins for
you on board of the ferry to Bergen (Norway). In
Bergen is our sailing yacht De
Hilde Baudine. Your start for a beautiful vacation trough Fjord Norway!
Even Norway's largest towns are small compared with London, Paris or Rome. They are never so big that you can't find your way around, but neither are they so small that there is nothing to do! Each city has its own distinctive historical and cultural character.
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 trough the Bjørnafjorden and the Blømlafjorden to the queen of the fjords.
From high mountains and glaciers the majestic waterfalls foam down into the Hardangerfjorden.
This fjord (179 km long) is famous because of a mild and pleasant climate and clear, light summer nights. They are ideal for our guests, as well as for fruit and berries. This area is Norway’s largest fruit-growing district.
The Hardangerfjord district has long traditions in tourism, dating back to the 1830s. There are several charming fjord villages situated around the fjord.
We hoist our sails for a nice sailing trip to the beautiful and changing countryside of Ryfylke with his mountains and fjords.
The Pulpit (Preikestolen) is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the southern part of Norway. The mountain plateau dives 604 meters vertically to the Lysefjord below, and the top is an almost level plateau of 25x25 meters. You can see all the way into Lysebotn at the end of the Lysefjorden.
We offer you the possibility to walk (approximately 1.5 to 2 hours from Preikestolhytta) to this famous rock.
Interesting museums like
the Maritime, Norwegian Petroleum and the Archaeological.
We hoist our sails for a nice sailing trip to the Norwegian Riviera.
From here we make a decision. Or we sail first to Thyborøn and Hvide Sande (Denmark) or we sail directly to The Netherlands.
After our visit to Vlieland (The Netherlands) we will reach Harlingen on the 23 of August.
If you are already in Norway, step on board
for one or more days!
