Explore the Fjords in 2016 - An Itinerary

Fjords

With thousands of miles of stunning coastline to discover, we have done the hard work for you and put together a 9 day itinerary to give you a taste of this beautiful, untouched land.

The Norwegian Fjords are becoming a popular destination for superyachts, with more and more vessels visiting each year to experience the majestic, peaceful beauty that is so rare to find elsewhere. Cruising in Norway is a unique experience and one that will stay with you.

Here is what we suggest to maximise your time and discover the best of the area, although tailor-made trips can be made and organised by Superyacht Norway

DAY 1: Bergen - Bekkjarvik

Board the yacht in Bergen and cruise to Bekkjarvik (28nm), a very quaint, traditional fishing village where you can dine in the world reknowned Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri which boasts Orjan Johannesen, winner of the Bocuse d'Or 2015 as resident chef.
