Boat Charter in Norway with Family

Norway is best navigated and seen from the comfort of your yacht on the water. Travelling at your own pace you can either sail short hops or longer passages if you wish, both are possible on a yacht charter in Norway. Sailing from Bergen, Tromso or the Lofoten Islands you will be surrounded by spectacular views from your yacht and there is always something interesting for you and your family to look at. You can enjoy sailing around Norway’s rugged islands and beautiful coastline with its untouched landscapes and colourful scenery. Sail into the deep fjords past some of the largest waterfalls in the world as they cascade and tumble down the cliffs into the fjords. Alternately cruise in an electric cabin cruiser along the Telemark coast and canal. Here you will experience traditional locks, narrow rivers and beautiful lakes. All the while creating great family memories that will last a lifetime.

Yacht Charter Norway offers families a change to explore the countryside with its brightly painted houses, interesting towns and quaint small fishing villages. There are many town docks that you are able to tie up to so that you can leave the boat and visit the interesting places ashore. Dine and sample local cuisine in one of the many dockside restaurants, relax at the bar or shop for souvenirs in the historic fairy tale cobbled high streets. There are many local markets where you can purchase fresh fish and produce to cook on board for a delicious meal.

Fun for all the family sailing around Norway!
