Norway Yacht Charter Guide

Norway’s effortless mix of bustling cities and secluded fjords makes this destination truly one of a kind.

When you embark on a luxury yacht charter to the Scandinavian country of Norway, you can expect cascading waterfalls, cosmopolitan cities and beautiful examples of mother nature’s most beautiful glaciers and peaks.

Embarking on a luxury yacht charter to Norway promises unique sights around every corner. This is a prime location for adventure-seekers with many natural wonders to behold, like the Midnight sun that takes place between May and July, offering endless daylight to take advantage of. Norway’s landscapes remain consistent with dramatic beauty and pristine cruising grounds.

One of the most popular is the Lofoten archipelago, where rugged pinnacles like Svolværgeita jut out from the sea. Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is possibly the most striking fjord on earth, with deep blue waters, towering peaks and a plethora of waterfalls. You will not want to miss this fairytale-like scenery while on your luxury yacht charter. These landscapes will be reminiscent of classic Norwegian imagery, with towering peaks and pristine, quiet waters.

Your Norway yacht charter will never be without entertainment, as this Scandinavian country offers plenty for outdoor exploring. From fishing and kayaking to wildlife tours and plenty of shopping and cultural delights, you can expect great fun while on your luxury yacht charter. Visit Stavanger Cathedral in Stavanger, a city in southwestern Norway filled with plenty of shopping, picturesque streets and exotic food traditions with cultural magic to tantalize your tastebuds.

Not far from Stavanger is the city of Bergen, famed for its UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bryggen. This row of colorful buildings is a stunning sight you will not want to miss. The quaint tea rooms and gourmet fish restaurants are also hot areas to check out while ashore. Explore the Hardangerfjord for breathtaking views that never get old, and afterward, head back to the decks of your luxury yacht for an evening cocktail while you and the other guests reminisce about the day’s adventures. Children will fall in love with the Fløibanen funicular railway that connects the city center with the mountain. This scenic excursion is fun for all ages, and the large windows in the train car offer unbeatable views.

For those looking for a rugged activity on land, head to Jostedalsbreen National Park for a hiking paradise. This site offers many routes for navigators, experienced and inexperienced, to cater to all levels. For an even more unique and thrill-seeking adventure, head to Kjerag mountain and teeter on Kjeragbolten, a rock wedged tightly in the mountain’s crevasse suspended above a 3,228’ (984m) gorge. The Sognefjord region is known for being the largest and deepest fjord in Norway and for its high-quality berries, lamb and goat cheese.

Finally, after days spent exploring the awe-inspiring Norwegian terrain, head to the country’s capital, Oslo, to experience cosmopolitan city life. Visit the Oslo Opera House and Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park to admire the installations by international artists.
