THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

Vibrant colours and mystic tales spring to mind when thinking of 'The Northern Lights'. A must-see on a Norway superyacht charter, Northern Norway is a destination to include in your itinerary. Theoretically, you can see the northern lights all over Norway. However, the best places are above the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway.

Compared to its relatively modest land area, Norway's coastline is immense, if you include the mainland, the roughly 50,000 islands, the numerous fjords and all indentations it measures 21,925. This gives yacht charters a lot of opportunity for immense sailing and cruising pleasure in protected waters.

In the land of the midnight sun, you'll share your yacht charter experience with few, other than the local fishermen and several species of wildlife. Norway's most pristine cruising area is Lofoten, where rugged pinnacles protrude from the sea. The most visited fjords are Vestlandet, which in cases a long stretch of the Norwegian coastline. The landscape here will inspire the stereotypical images of Norway. Imagine yourself here, cruising through the incredible peaks, on your own yacht charter.

The best time to cruise the Scandinavian coasts, is from April to August, although, with the correct clothing and a heated charter boat, a western coast cruise of Norway, in off season, can be an equally unforgettable experience.

The types of yacht charter available in Scandinavia, Finland, Sweden and Norway include motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, and even the occasional luxury yacht charter.

A yacht charter in Scandinavia will leave you feeling breathless from the shear raw beauty the landscape provides.

We are back from our arctic adventure and had a wonderful time. Everything went perfectly: the boat was excellent, the captain and crew were positive and helpful beyond our expectations, Martin was a great guide, and the sun was shining almost every day.

We were so impressed that we are considering a trip to Antarctic in December M.P chartered HANSE EXPLORER in Norway and Svalbard Archipelago in August.

The Kingdom of Norway (Norwegian Kongeriket Norge). This country,  occupies the western part of the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern  Europe. Its name originates from the Old Norse word Nor?rvegr – “way to  north." Norway is a great sailing destination, surrounded by three seas:  the Barents Sea to the northeast, the Norwegian – to the West and  Northen Sea – to the south-west it has a lot to offer to most  experienced sailors. Norway has a long and narrow territory with 30%  covered by forests, many rivers and lakes. More than half of the  country's territory is occupied by mountains.

Only Norway yacht charter vacation can offer a unique blend of  gorgeous scenery, diverse wildlife and spectacular Nothern Lighst  watching. Explore drammatic northern nature and spectacular landscapes  form the comfort of your yacht or catamaran.

General description: The kingdom of Norway, one of the largest  countries in Europe, spreads its borders along the North Sea, the  Norwegian Sea and the Arctic Ocean. Norway yacht charter is an ideal way  to explore magnificent fjords, which are unique geological formations  stretching deep into surrounding mountains, indenting its rugged  coastline, present the most spectacular features. Norway is also the  home of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Places of interest:

The capital, Oslo, is a vibrant city centered round a harbor and  guarded by the 14-th century castle. The center of Oslo is home to the  Royal Palace, Viking Ship Museum, a lot of parks and galleries, as well  as other public institutions. Rent a boat in Norway and discover the  area close to Oslo, that is well built-up, with bustling harbors,  guarded by fortresses as early as 1643. But further south the scenery is  like post cards depicting dramatic towns and serene villages with  quaint clapboard houses and boats galore.

Bareboat charter in Oslofjorden area will bring you to the oldest  settlements dated back to Stone and Bronze Ages. Hanko is one of the  islands in this area. Its harbor town has the oldest naval museum in the  world, established in 1853. Although it sits on a bare rock, facing the  fjord, its sheltered eastern side is well forested, providing a  much-favored harbor and anchorage. The Norwegian Yachting Association  was founded here in 1882. Since then the island has been a venue for  national regattas, sailing races and world championship events. Norway  yacht charter in July will give you a chance to see most popular Hanko  Regatta that collects over 200 boats.

Southern Norway bareboat charter

The southern coast ( Oslo and Bergen ),  lined with silver-sand beaches set against a backdrop of high mountain  plateau, and white-painted houses in fish-farming villages, is known as  the sunny side of Norway and summer paradise for holiday-makers. Renting  a boat here you will find numerous harbors with all necessary  amenities.

Western Norway yacht charter

The long lacy western coastline borders the North Sea. This part of the  country is a true land of fjords, waterfalls, glaciers and secluded  beaches. Bergen is the second biggest town in Norway and offers number  of yachts for charter. Back in 10170 Bergen was the largest town in the  country and the capital of a region that included Iceland, Greenland and  parts of Scotland. Even after Oslo became capital of Norway in 1299,  Bergen continued to grow as a trading center, especially for the exports  of dried fish. Now it is a true center of shipping. Bergen is a World  Heritage City and the official residence of the king of Norway.

Northern Norway

Northern Norway ( Tromso and Lofoten )  has been called as "the land of excitement" or "the land of the high  flames". These expressions capture the essence of it - the shimmering  Northern Lights of winter and the midnight sun that shines day and night  in summer. With bareboat charter, you will be able to explore its  unspoiled coast that consists of a multitude of islands, fjords,  snow-clad peaks and glaciers. The northernmost point in Norway, Nordkapp  (the North Cape), is a place of pilgrimage for all-time traveler. Sheer  1,014-ft (309-m) high perpendicular cliffs form this most amazing  landmark as Europe's most northerly point.

Rent a boat in Eastern Norway

The route between Tonsberg and Tjome, known as World's End, is only  19 miles (30 km) but plenty of time needed to explore this stunning  archipelago. There are impressive coves, narrow sounds, old skipper's  houses and boathouses, also a string of inviting holiday resorts.  Bridges connecting the larger islands and the sea is never far away for a  refreshing swim. Mountains, valleys and lakes dominate this incredible  landscape. It has a special appeal for rock climbers and hikers: from  the easy alpine pastures in Alvdal to demanding peaks in the national  parks.

Festivities. There are four defined seasons in Norway and "every  season has its charm". And Norway finds its enjoyment in each of them by  creating a number of festivals: snow and ice sculpture tournament, ski-  kite event, white-water canoe racing, dog-sledding, boat festivals -  fairs and games all the way along the coast.

Although sometimes wind or cold, rain or snow, can bring those  pleasures indoors (Jazz, folklore and dance festivals, film premieres  and art exhibitions), but nothing can spoil high spirit, because  festivals are important part of the nation's cultural life.

While on the yacht charter in Norway do not miss its vibrant cuisine  rich in fresh seafood (smoked, pickled or dried fish including whale  meat and seal) and wild game (reindeer, elk, pheasant, etc.). Although  over the years the local restaurants have become incredibly diverse,  including exotic international meals in the menu, Norwegian specialties,  such as lamb and cabbage stew or reindeer medallions or marinade of  rabbit, cannot be missed. Other traditional favorites include cured  smoked sausage and pheasant breast served with mushroom sauce. One  should not forget Norwegian most famous cheeses, best served on Ryvita  crisps. And for desert try fruits and especially berries (gooseberries  or black- and red currants).

Climate in Norway

Much of the country is habitable due to the warming effects of the  Gulf Stream. It comfortably creates mild winters and cool summers on the  west coast. The south and west of the country have the highest average  temperature 72F (22C) in Oslo in July. Norway is a vast country with  wide variations in its geographical and climate conditions. Both at sea  and in the mountains the wind and weather can change rapidly, thus it is  advisable to consult local people with knowledge of the sea before  setting forth into unknown waters.

Magnificent scenery combined with the wide range of outdoor  activities (whale and seal safaris; cave walking; dog-sledging, mountain  climbing, etc.) - that what makes Norway so appealing to adventurous  travelers. Norway has enormously long coastline interspersed with fjords  and islands, making boating a pure haven. And the most rewarding way to  explore the remote and enticing parts of this unique country is  definitely by sailing. The western coastline provides the most  convenient and safe mooring for the boats. Although anchorage is  free-of-charge in Norway, there are certain (and sometimes complicated)  specifics about mooring and berths. That's why it is better to let  experts deal with it. No matter how well-organized your sailing event  looks like, it is always wise and safe to consult and present your  vacation dream to professionals and let "12 Knots" do what they are good  at.

Build your own unique trip!

Though you can charter a yacht on Oslo Fjord to explore the waterways of the capital in the southeast of the country, most Norway sailing holidays are about the fjords, mountains and islands close to the Arctic Circle around the west coast.

Broadly there are two charter areas - the west coast with the fjords and the Lofoten archipelago. Many fly in to this region in winter for the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) but with the freezing gales and difficult sailing conditions, the best time to visit Northern Norway is in the summer months when the sun never sets.

In summer you should bring your hiking boots as there will be mountains and islands you want to explore. Close to Haugesund you will want to do a mountain hike to Pulpit Rock with its astounding views of the fjord for example, while in the Lofoten islands you may want to explore an abandoned fishing village or glacier.

This is not a beach holiday! Though there have been heat waves recently you can expect temperatures to climb as high as 15 degrees C in summer - hardly teeshirt weather! It is about sightseeing, watching great whales and enjoying one of the last great wildernesses of Northern Europe.

Hiring A Yacht In Norway

If you are on a Norwegian sailing holiday with a paid skipper or crew at the helm, you will just have to turn up to the yacht charter base, pay your remaining 50% and get comfortable in your cabin.

For those on a bareboat rental, you will need to present your sailing qualifications to the charter company, inspect the vessel and then off you go. Do remember that gales can spring up at almost any time of the year and prepare for some fun sailing conditions as you set off on your sailing adventure.

Getting to Norway

The main national airport in Norway is at the capital, Oslo. If you are headed for the Lofoten Islands then you will take a connecting flight on to them from here.

There are regional international airports - Bergen notably is the biggest city on the west coast, but Stavanger (a major yacht charter base) also has an international airport. Depending on where you are flying from it is worth planning your journey ahead.

Best Areas To Charter

Norway is a renowned sailing nation with a well developed sailing scene in Oslo Fjord. This has a longer sailing season than the west coast and Lofoten Islands but the scenery isn't as dramatic and many people visit the country for the deep fjords, glaciers and mountains - these are on the west coast and of course in the Lofoten archipelago.

Stavanger is the main base for many a yacht charter company and is the jumping off point for you to explore 'Fjordland' with the steep mountains jutting out of the deep waterways. Haugesund and the famous Pulpit Rock are closeby, the jaw dropping scenery of Sognefjord nearby with quaint towns like Balestrand deep within. The Art Nouveau town of Alesund is far to the north, but is definitely worth exploring.

Lofoten Archipelago

For those who really want an adventure, deep inside the Arctic Circle are the Lofoten Islands. With their main town of Svalbard as a charter base, here you can explore these Arctic islands with their amazing wildlife and stunning scenery. In the 12th Century the Gulf Stream started bringing cod to the islands and villages sprang up as locals harvested the fruits of the sea. Many of these are now abandoned and you can get lost in one of Europe's greatest wildernesses that whales and polar bears call home!

Best Towns To Charter A Yacht In Norway

A small town on the west coast with its own international airport, south of Bergen, Stavanger is a charter base for yacht charterers who wish to enjoy a sailing holiday in the Norwegian fjord country.

Famous for being burned down and completely rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style in the early 20th Century, Alesund is a pretty town in the northwest of Norway. Still in fjordland, it is a great place to explore the mountains and glaciers of the area.

The main town in the Lofoten Islands, Svalbard is the main charter base for Norway yacht charters in these Arctic islands.

Types Of Yachts To Hire

There are three broad types of charter - bareboat charter, flotilla charters, and skippered yacht charter. Where it comes to the types of charter boat you can hire a motorboat charter , a monohull sailing yacht charter , catamaran charter , superyacht charter or luxury yacht charter and RIBs or day boats. Each have their benefits.

Coming in all shapes and sizes from 7 metres to 70+ metres, motorboats are as different as their uses. A seven metre RIB will be a great day boat and can be hired for as little as €110 a day for fishing trips or just blasting about the bay. The 15 metre plus size of motor yacht will have cabins and often en suite heads and cost upwards of €400 a day.

Starting at as 'little' as €10,000 a day a superyacht charter will come with skipper and crew as part of the package. On the crewed motor yacht or sailboat you will be treated like kings and queens on your personal mini-cruise-ship that will often come with tenders and toys such as jet skis and even sailing yachts!

Luxury Yacht Charter

Coming with or without skipper and/or crew, a luxury charter yacht will cost upwards of €700 a day and will come fully fitted out with all the modern conveniences and comforts of the very best sailing craft afloat. Expect en suite heads and comfortable staterooms but also a lot of fun under sail!

Starting at €450 a day, catamarans are luxury yachts that offer lots of space, a fair lick of speed on a reach and a shallow draft for mooring close into shore. They have twin engines in the hulls so while large they are incredibly manoeuvrable when in marinas and so forth.

Monohull Sailing Yacht

Ranging in size from 10 metres up to 20 or so, monohull sailboat form the backbone of the Norway yacht charter industry. Very good to windward, you will find yourself chewing up the miles at all points of sail without relying on the engines. Costing as little as €120 a day you will enjoy comfort and fun for a good budget price.

Skippered Yacht charter or Bareboat?

Where it comes to a Norwegian yacht charter you have two choices - bareboat or crewed yacht charter. Both have their own advantages.

Crewed charter

No sailing qualifications or not confident enough to bareboat charter yourself? That's no problem when it comes to yacht charter - you can take on a skipper and crew for the week or two touring Norwegian waters! With a crewed yacht charter you have someone aboard who knows the ropes and the best places to visit on your sailing holiday. They will know the best spots for what you want, be it hideaway restaurants or the best diving and snorkelling reefs on the islands! Costing as little as €100 a day (depending on the size and type of vessel) you will get the very best from your yacht charter holiday with one aboard. Don't forget the tip at the end of the week!

Bareboat yacht charter

A competent sailor? Have the qualifications required? Dreaming all year of casting off and exploring the Norwegianfjords and islands with just you and your friends? A bareboat yacht charter is just the thing for you. This is cheaper than a skippered yacht charter but you also get the privacy of being in your chosen group without a stranger in your midst. You get to choose your own adventure and go at your own pace - not a bad thing for a holiday to recharge your batteries ahead of rejoining the rat race...

Do you need a licence to charter in Norway?

If you want to bareboat charter you will need an approved boating qualification, below is a list of relevant qualifications:

International Certificate of Competence (ICC): Standard European Qualification for bareboat sailing

ASA 104 Bareboat certificate : The American Sailing Association's skipper standard qualification for hiring bareboat yachts.

RYA: The Royal Yachting Association's qualifications (minimum Day Skipper level) is necessary for bareboat hire, it's also worthwhile seeing do you need to have done a VHF radio course as well as some private yacht owners will require this.

There are also many other European national boating qualifications that are accepted here too, it's worthwhile checking these details before hiring.

If you want a skippered boat rental as a charter yacht then you don't need any sailing certification at all, you just turn up and off you go.

Best Times To Hire

With 24/7 sun in Northern Norway, the best time to charter a yacht is between June and August. This narrow sailing season is due to the climate where storms can batter you at almost any time of the year - but less so in the high summer months. Inside the deep fjords there is a lot of shelter from the winds so even while on the coast there can be quite exciting weather, you'll often be sheltered from it inland. The good news is that the peak tourist season is during the winter (to see the Northern Lights) so you won't exactly be fighting for a mooring as you would in Greece for example in July!

The Climate

June - August: This is dominated by North Atlantic weather systems that at this time of year can be quite benign. Expect westerlies of F3-4 and temperatures as 'high' as 15 degrees C.

How much does it cost for a Norway Charter

There's almost a yacht for every budget when it comes to chartering. For EU €120 a day - €840 a week - you can take a sailboat monohull out with five other adults. That is going to be cheaper than a week in a hotel for everyone.

Catamarans cost a lot more - expect to pay anything from €500 to €2,000 a day depending on the season.

Motor boats taken on a bareboat basis can cost as little as €500 a day if they have sleeping acommodation - much less if they are day boats.

RIBs can cost as little as €50 for an afternoon.

In each of the examples above you can take on a skipper starting at €150 a day depending on what the vessel is and their required qualifications to sail it.

Superyachts and luxury yachts are a different league - expect to pay €15,000 a day and up to €100,000 a day if your budget can manage it.

You can hire everything from a small motor boat to a large superyacht charter. Monohull sailing yachts are common, though catamarans are more comfortable and spacious metre for metre.

What should I consider when hiring a Yacht?

Your budget for the sailing holiday should come first. Travelling - both getting there and what destinations to explore. What do you enjoy on a Norway yacht charter? Work out your itinerary from there. Who are you taking with you and what are your limitations as a sailor?

What are the best time to hire a Yacht in Norway?

Norway has a very short sailing season - just three months from June to August.

Do you have to pay a deposit when hiring a Yacht in Norway?

There are two deposits to consider. Firstly you will normally have to pay a 50% deposit on booking. This secures your trip. On arrival you will have to pay a refundable security deposit for the trip on your credit card though you can get yacht charter insurance - though non-refundable this can be cheaper.

What happens if my Yacht breaks down?

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to/are on a mooring you will be able to phone a number given by the yacht charter company.

What should I think of before I hire a Yacht in Norway?

Do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter you want to book? Where do you want to go? Bring warm clothing as it's rarely bikini weather!

Do I need a visa to visit Norway?

If you are from a North American, Oceania or European country you shouldn't normally require a visa to sail in Norway. Check with your Norwegian Embassy if unsure.

Frequently asked questions

The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.

​You will typically pay 50% up front on booking the yacht hire and the balance on arrival. You will either pay a security deposit with your credit card on departure or can get insurance covering damage in advance. In some cases (such as the recent Covid situation) charter companies may be more flexible but this depends on the individual charter companies themselves.

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company.

You should consider do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter or boat hire before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool on most evenings.

If you want to sail without a skipper then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. For small 'day boats' or if you choose to have a skippered on board your yacht charter you typically don't require licences.

Norway Yacht Charters

Explore the breathtaking fjords on your yacht charter in norway.

There is nowhere in the world quite like Scandinavia; and there is nowhere in Scandinavia quite like Norway. A once-in-a-lifetime yacht charter destination, Norway is unbelievably beautiful.

A seemingly remote destination, Norway has long been remembered for its Vikings days. Stretching from Skagerrak to the Arctic Sea, Norway is a mystical country filled with vast stretches of serene, picture-perfect landscapes; like its majestic fjords, towering peaks, forested hills, the Arctic tundra, river valleys, glaciers, and more. Can you imagine a more enchanting destination for yacht charters?

Balancing out its natural beauty, Norway is a haven of cultural surroundings, cosmopolitan cities, and Scandinavian architecture. Wander through its cities, and you’ll find a warm, welcoming people, cobblestone streets, delicious restaurants, and a wealth of bars. The real charm of Norway, however, is its familiar vibes.

Norway Yacht Charter Highlights

  • Emerald green valleys and the magnificent fjords
  • Vibrant cities with fascinating past
  • Lively fishing villages and great seafood
  • Great hiking, kayaking and other sports
  • Spectacular scenery

From iconic fjords and glaciers to its towering mountain peaks and forested plains, there is nowhere in the world quite like Norway. And to make sure you check off all the things on your Scandinavian bucket list, when planning your next yacht charter in Norway, make sure you pick the time of year that works best with your itinerary.

Spring Spring in Norway is just as beautiful as the summer — except for the fact that the temperatures are much colder. That said, late spring is a good time to sail through Norway. After a cold Scandinavian winter, spring in Norway means all the streams, brooks, rivers and waterfalls flow freely with the snowmelt, and the country’s vast population of wildlife come out of hiding and start roaming through the forests. This is also the time of year when the trees and flowers start blossoming again, so the scenery you’ll sail past will be nothing short of stunning.

Summer This is definitely the most popular time of year yacht charters in Norway to sail through the fjords, and that’s only because the weather is absolutely perfect. During the day, the temperatures will be warm and sunny, and there will be so much to see — from glaciers and forests, to animals, beautiful landscapes, and if you go far enough north, the “land of the midnight sun,” where the sun never sets.

Fall Early fall is a great time for a Norway yacht charter. During this time of year, the trees will just start to lose their leaves and turn multiple shades of red, orange and gold. You won’t see as many yachts around this time of year, which has its own merits; you get beautiful Norway all to yourself.

Why is Yachting in Norway so Spectacular?

Norway yacht charter through afjord

Norway is filled with dramatic landscapes

From seemingly impossible fjords and vast green space to glaciers, ice fields, mountains, and rocky coasts, Norway yacht charters are nothing short of natural wonders. Because of its diverse landforms, its beauty rivals some of the world’s most raved-about travel destinations. Adding to its intrigue, these Arctic landscapes are just a backdrop for Norway’s ever-growing population of wildlife: polar bears, reindeer, musk oxen, and schools of salmon, to name a few.

The fjords alone are reason enough to visit

Who doesn’t want to see the fjords of Norway? Flanked by steep cliffs, mountains, and glaciers, the fjords are naturally beautiful; a result of their narrow, steep-sided crystalline rock walls that stretch from 1,640 feet below sea level to 4,593 feet above it. Some of Norway’s fjords have been dubbed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The sun always rises

In northern Norway, above the Arctic Circle, you can see the sun 24 hours a day. In the summer, “sunrise” is at midnight, leaving plenty of time for sailing, climbing, and exploring.

It’s one of the best spots to see the Northern Lights

Best spotted in autumn and winter, the Northern Lights are a sight to be seen in northern Norway. Attracting travelers from around the world, these cloud-like lights can only be seen at night. The Northern Lights come in shades of green, pink and violet, and look like a light show dancing across the evening sky.

In Norway, adventure is encouraged

For Norwegians especially, nature is a part of life — one they have a passion for exploring. As a result, Norway has become one of the world’s top adventure tourism destinations. Depending on the seasons, travelers and locals alike can be found hiking, cycling, white-water rafting, dog-sledding, skiing, snowmobiling, sailing and more. They do this for good reason; Norway’s most beautiful assets are its stunning landscapes.

Once ashore, the region offers everything from big-city experiences to stunning scenery If you're looking for a more cultural experience, the new Munch Museum will open in autumn 2020. Edvard Munch was one of the greatest artists in Norway's history and much of his 28,000 works are collected in the museum. Bordering Oslo are also the regions of Østfold and Vestfold, where you can dock by boat in the charming towns of Fredrikstad and Tønsberg.

Kristiansand and Sørlandet

Sørlandet, Norway's southernmost region, is also the summer paradise of Norwegians. The region is full of beautiful beaches and when you travel by boat, you also have access to the thousands of islands that are found in the region. The largest city in the region is Kristiansand. There you can stroll through beautiful authentic alleys in the old town of Posebyen, feast on fresh seafood or take part in one of the city's many festivals.

If you're travelling with the family, Dyreparken is a safe bet, while Kristiansand Zoo is a guaranteed hit with kids young and old. If you sail the furthest south in the region, you'll find Lindesnes lighthouse, Norway's southernmost point! If you want to enjoy a tasty meal, the Michelin restaurant Under is also located here, the world's largest underwater restaurant.

Continuing past the southern tip of Norway and sailing up the west coast of Norway, you'll soon reach Stavanger, the largest city in south-western Norway. Stavanger is the perfect starting point if you want to experience famous natural attractions such as Preikestolen and Lysefjorden.

In the coastal area of Jæren you will find some of Norway's whitest and longest beaches and the area is also a paradise for water sports. The city itself also has much to offer and as the former European Capital of Culture, Stavanger has a wide range of museums and a vibrant cultural life.

The mountain

Departing from Stavanger and continuing along the west coast of Norway, you'll reach Bergen after a while. Bergen may be Norway's second largest city, but it still has a cosy small-town feel with its traditional wooden houses and surrounding mountain landscape.

An obvious destination when visiting Bergen is the UNESCO-protected Hanseatic Port, which has been a trading post for a thousand years. Bergen is also a real student city, so there's always something going on. So there's always even an exciting concert or art exhibition to visit.

In the middle of Norway's west coast lies Trøndelag, a region that offers both culinary experiences and outdoor pursuits. Here you can fish, cycle or enjoy the local culinary culture, which places great emphasis on locally produced ingredients.

Trondheim, the region's largest city, offers a wide range of culinary experiences and you can find everything from cosy cafés to Michelin restaurants. If you're looking for further gourmet experiences, a visit to the UNESCO-protected mining town of Røros is recommended. Here you can combine a well cooked meal with interesting history.

In northern Norway, you'll find the Lofoten archipelago. When you visit this region you will be shocked by the wonderful landscape with its massive mountains, deep fjords and idyllic sandy beaches. In addition, the region offers amazing natural phenomena.

From late May to mid-July you can enjoy the northern lights and the midnight sun, while from September to mid-April you can see the astonishing northern lights. The wildlife here is also absolutely stunning with mighty sea eagles and killer whales. Lofoten is also working to become a sustainable destination, which means that they strive to offer travellers rewarding experiences while preserving the local nature, culture and environment.

Driving a little further north, you'll come to Tromsø, also known as the "capital of the Arctic". If you want to discover epic nature and go on a whale safari, you've come to the right place.

There are also great hiking trails nearby and in Lyngenfjord you can go on idyllic summit walks between the mountains. If you're interested in Sami culture and history, Karasjok and Alta are also recommended.

A Norway yacht charter can offer some really lovely sailing.  While it is considerably cooler than some of the other European destinations, you can still enjoy great weather. 

You will find July and August to be the sunniest and warmest months, with average temperatures around  20°C / 68°F.  May is the driest month, which is an important consideration given the mountains that trap rain clouds.

Yacht4Less can provide airport transfers to the base if needed. Just speak with your charter consultant, and provide your travel itinerary details.

Buses are also available for a quick and easy transfer. Bus schedules available, here.

Tip #1: Important to note that Norway uses the Krone, so if you would like to pay with cash, you should arrange to do the exchange before you leave, or from a kiosk in the airport. However, many places in Norway accept credit cards. 

Tip #2: With Norway’s landscape, you’ll be keeping very active. Make sure you bring your hiking boots so you can fully explore places like the Kalrassen waterfall! 

Tip #3: For more cosmopolitan settings, you can explore the capital city of Bergen, a UNESCO site known for its colorful buildings and unique culture.

Though you can charter a yacht on Oslo Fjord to explore the waterways of the capital in the southeast of the country, most Norway sailing holidays are about the fjords, mountains and islands close to the Arctic Circle around the west coast.

Broadly there are two charter areas - the west coast with the fjords and the Lofoten archipelago. Many fly in to this region in winter for the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) but with the freezing gales and difficult sailing conditions, the best time to visit Northern Norway is in the summer months when the sun never sets.

In summer you should bring your hiking boots as there will be mountains and islands you want to explore. Close to Haugesund you will want to do a mountain hike to Pulpit Rock with its astounding views of the fjord for example, while in the Lofoten islands you may want to explore an abandoned fishing village or glacier.

This is not a beach holiday! Though there have been heat waves recently you can expect temperatures to climb as high as 15 degrees C in summer - hardly teeshirt weather! It is about sightseeing, watching great whales and enjoying one of the last great wildernesses of Northern Europe.

Hiring A Yacht In Norway

If you are on a Norwegian sailing holiday with a paid skipper or crew at the helm, you will just have to turn up to the yacht charter base, pay your remaining 50% and get comfortable in your cabin.

For those on a bareboat rental, you will need to present your sailing qualifications to the charter company, inspect the vessel and then off you go. Do remember that gales can spring up at almost any time of the year and prepare for some fun sailing conditions as you set off on your sailing adventure.

Getting to Norway

The main national airport in Norway is at the capital, Oslo. If you are headed for the Lofoten Islands then you will take a connecting flight on to them from here.

There are regional international airports - Bergen notably is the biggest city on the west coast, but Stavanger (a major yacht charter base) also has an international airport. Depending on where you are flying from it is worth planning your journey ahead.

Best Areas To Charter

Norway is a renowned sailing nation with a well developed sailing scene in Oslo Fjord. This has a longer sailing season than the west coast and Lofoten Islands but the scenery isn't as dramatic and many people visit the country for the deep fjords, glaciers and mountains - these are on the west coast and of course in the Lofoten archipelago.

Stavanger is the main base for many a yacht charter company and is the jumping off point for you to explore 'Fjordland' with the steep mountains jutting out of the deep waterways. Haugesund and the famous Pulpit Rock are closeby, the jaw dropping scenery of Sognefjord nearby with quaint towns like Balestrand deep within. The Art Nouveau town of Alesund is far to the north, but is definitely worth exploring.

Lofoten Archipelago

For those who really want an adventure, deep inside the Arctic Circle are the Lofoten Islands. With their main town of Svalbard as a charter base, here you can explore these Arctic islands with their amazing wildlife and stunning scenery. In the 12th Century the Gulf Stream started bringing cod to the islands and villages sprang up as locals harvested the fruits of the sea. Many of these are now abandoned and you can get lost in one of Europe's greatest wildernesses that whales and polar bears call home!

Best Towns To Charter A Yacht In Norway

A small town on the west coast with its own international airport, south of Bergen, Stavanger is a charter base for yacht charterers who wish to enjoy a sailing holiday in the Norwegian fjord country.

Famous for being burned down and completely rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style in the early 20th Century, Alesund is a pretty town in the northwest of Norway. Still in fjordland, it is a great place to explore the mountains and glaciers of the area.

The main town in the Lofoten Islands, Svalbard is the main charter base for Norway yacht charters in these Arctic islands.

Types Of Yachts To Hire

There are three broad types of charter - bareboat charter, flotilla charters, and skippered yacht charter. Where it comes to the types of charter boat you can hire a motorboat charter , a monohull sailing yacht charter , catamaran charter , superyacht charter or luxury yacht charter and RIBs or day boats. Each have their benefits.

Coming in all shapes and sizes from 7 metres to 70+ metres, motorboats are as different as their uses. A seven metre RIB will be a great day boat and can be hired for as little as €110 a day for fishing trips or just blasting about the bay. The 15 metre plus size of motor yacht will have cabins and often en suite heads and cost upwards of €400 a day.

Starting at as 'little' as €10,000 a day a superyacht charter will come with skipper and crew as part of the package. On the crewed motor yacht or sailboat you will be treated like kings and queens on your personal mini-cruise-ship that will often come with tenders and toys such as jet skis and even sailing yachts!

Luxury Yacht Charter

Coming with or without skipper and/or crew, a luxury charter yacht will cost upwards of €700 a day and will come fully fitted out with all the modern conveniences and comforts of the very best sailing craft afloat. Expect en suite heads and comfortable staterooms but also a lot of fun under sail!

Starting at €450 a day, catamarans are luxury yachts that offer lots of space, a fair lick of speed on a reach and a shallow draft for mooring close into shore. They have twin engines in the hulls so while large they are incredibly manoeuvrable when in marinas and so forth.

Monohull Sailing Yacht

Ranging in size from 10 metres up to 20 or so, monohull sailboat form the backbone of the Norway yacht charter industry. Very good to windward, you will find yourself chewing up the miles at all points of sail without relying on the engines. Costing as little as €120 a day you will enjoy comfort and fun for a good budget price.

Skippered Yacht charter or Bareboat?

Where it comes to a Norwegian yacht charter you have two choices - bareboat or crewed yacht charter. Both have their own advantages.

Crewed charter

No sailing qualifications or not confident enough to bareboat charter yourself? That's no problem when it comes to yacht charter - you can take on a skipper and crew for the week or two touring Norwegian waters! With a crewed yacht charter you have someone aboard who knows the ropes and the best places to visit on your sailing holiday. They will know the best spots for what you want, be it hideaway restaurants or the best diving and snorkelling reefs on the islands! Costing as little as €100 a day (depending on the size and type of vessel) you will get the very best from your yacht charter holiday with one aboard. Don't forget the tip at the end of the week!

Bareboat yacht charter

A competent sailor? Have the qualifications required? Dreaming all year of casting off and exploring the Norwegianfjords and islands with just you and your friends? A bareboat yacht charter is just the thing for you. This is cheaper than a skippered yacht charter but you also get the privacy of being in your chosen group without a stranger in your midst. You get to choose your own adventure and go at your own pace - not a bad thing for a holiday to recharge your batteries ahead of rejoining the rat race...

Do you need a licence to charter in Norway?

If you want to bareboat charter you will need an approved boating qualification, below is a list of relevant qualifications:

International Certificate of Competence (ICC): Standard European Qualification for bareboat sailing

ASA 104 Bareboat certificate : The American Sailing Association's skipper standard qualification for hiring bareboat yachts.

RYA: The Royal Yachting Association's qualifications (minimum Day Skipper level) is necessary for bareboat hire, it's also worthwhile seeing do you need to have done a VHF radio course as well as some private yacht owners will require this.

There are also many other European national boating qualifications that are accepted here too, it's worthwhile checking these details before hiring.

If you want a skippered boat rental as a charter yacht then you don't need any sailing certification at all, you just turn up and off you go.

Best Times To Hire

With 24/7 sun in Northern Norway, the best time to charter a yacht is between June and August. This narrow sailing season is due to the climate where storms can batter you at almost any time of the year - but less so in the high summer months. Inside the deep fjords there is a lot of shelter from the winds so even while on the coast there can be quite exciting weather, you'll often be sheltered from it inland. The good news is that the peak tourist season is during the winter (to see the Northern Lights) so you won't exactly be fighting for a mooring as you would in Greece for example in July!

The Climate

June - August: This is dominated by North Atlantic weather systems that at this time of year can be quite benign. Expect westerlies of F3-4 and temperatures as 'high' as 15 degrees C.

How much does it cost for a Norway Charter

There's almost a yacht for every budget when it comes to chartering. For EU €120 a day - €840 a week - you can take a sailboat monohull out with five other adults. That is going to be cheaper than a week in a hotel for everyone.

Catamarans cost a lot more - expect to pay anything from €500 to €2,000 a day depending on the season.

Motor boats taken on a bareboat basis can cost as little as €500 a day if they have sleeping acommodation - much less if they are day boats.

RIBs can cost as little as €50 for an afternoon.

In each of the examples above you can take on a skipper starting at €150 a day depending on what the vessel is and their required qualifications to sail it.

Superyachts and luxury yachts are a different league - expect to pay €15,000 a day and up to €100,000 a day if your budget can manage it.

Is Yacht hire in Norway Legal?

Norway yacht charters are a legal and fun way to enjoy the best of this country. Do visit in the summer months when the weather is right though!

What kind of Yachts can I hire in Norway

You can hire everything from a small motor boat to a large superyacht charter. Monohull sailing yachts are common, though catamarans are more comfortable and spacious metre for metre.

What should I consider when hiring a Yacht?

Your budget for the sailing holiday should come first. Travelling - both getting there and what destinations to explore. What do you enjoy on a Norway yacht charter? Work out your itinerary from there. Who are you taking with you and what are your limitations as a sailor?

What are the best time to hire a Yacht in Norway?

Norway has a very short sailing season - just three months from June to August.

Do you have to pay a deposit when hiring a Yacht in Norway?

There are two deposits to consider. Firstly you will normally have to pay a 50% deposit on booking. This secures your trip. On arrival you will have to pay a refundable security deposit for the trip on your credit card though you can get yacht charter insurance - though non-refundable this can be cheaper.

What happens if my Yacht breaks down?

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to/are on a mooring you will be able to phone a number given by the yacht charter company.

What should I think of before I hire a Yacht in Norway?

Do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter you want to book? Where do you want to go? Bring warm clothing as it's rarely bikini weather!

Do I need a visa to visit Norway?

If you are from a North American, Oceania or European country you shouldn't normally require a visa to sail in Norway. Check with your Norwegian Embassy if unsure.

The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.

​You will typically pay 50% up front on booking the yacht hire and the balance on arrival. You will either pay a security deposit with your credit card on departure or can get insurance covering damage in advance. In some cases (such as the recent Covid situation) charter companies may be more flexible but this depends on the individual charter companies themselves.

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company.

You should consider do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter or boat hire before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool on most evenings.

If you want to sail without a skipper then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. For small 'day boats' or if you choose to have a skippered on board your yacht charter you typically don't require licences.

Yacht Charter Norway

Yacht Charter From Bergen

SAILING WEST COAST NORWAY

Sailing West Coast Norway

Bareboat yacht charter in Bergen is a unique, varied and interesting experience. Due to the large cruising ground and infinite sailing options available a west coast Norway yacht charter will appeal to yacht charter groups for many different reasons. Some like the breath taking scenery, island hopping and quaint villages whist other charterers enjoy the history sites that Norway has to offer. 

Stretching from Tananger and Stavanger, south of Bergen all the way up to Trondheim, the Norwegian coast has a unique geographical make up and follows a very distinct pattern. Outer fringes of sheltering islands of various sizes adorn this impressive coastline and a series of large sounds and fjords, formed millions of years ago by glaciers cut into the landscape to form horizontal waterways penetrating miles inland and forming some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the world.

SAILING IN THE FJORDS

Sailing in Norwegian Fjords

This is fjord Norway, a sailor’s paradise in the North Sea through deep and dramatic fjords lying in gorges cut between majestic mountains. The climbing mountains on either side of the fjords are steep and high, and continue as far below the water as above.

The headland of Statt divides the west coast into a southern section, starting in Stavanger, and a northern section, ending in Trondheim, where south and north Norway meet.

Bergen is Norway’s second largest city, and lies conveniently between two of the most famous and interesting fjords, Hardangerfjord, which goes under several names winding its way northwest between low-lying landscapes and steep impressive mountains, and Sognefjord, one of the world’s longest natural fjord.

Stavanger is situated in the southwest corner of a large bay of islands surrounded by fjords. Lysefjord, with its dramatic pulpit rock (usually seen in most of the Norway Fjords’ tourist literature) is as steep and dramatic as the larger longer fjords further north.

Fjord scenery is spectacular, but care and good planning is required for fjord sailing in many regions of Norway. There are small settlements, anchorages, and towns but due to some of the distances attention to detail when planning your passages is required. Winds can be unpredictable in the fjords and can occasionally funnel down through the fjords or from the mountains. 

Many people prefer to island hop on either side of the inner lead, and admire the dramatic scenery of the mountains and fjords from a distance whilst ensuring some spirited and varied sailing days and passages.

Harbours are not crowded and you will find only a few other yachts. The islands themselves are diverse and varied – rich in cultural and historical interest. The history of the area tells tales and shows evidence from the era of the Vikings and the small fishing villages and fishing way of life is still abundant today.

Travel connections are excellent to Bergen with many low cost carriers flying in from Europe, the UK and further afield. There are good internal and international flights, along with ferries, trains and long-distance buses.

Places to visit

There are many different interesting sites to visit on a yacht charter in Norway. From Bergen you will find a lot of well protected mooring facilities so that you can get on and off the boat as you wish. There are many small-town docks for you to tie up to and you will always find a space between anchoring and mooring.

After a lovely sail, dock at Bergen and take the Ulriken Cable Car high into the mountains or take a ride on Fløibanen Funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen and once at the top you will have the most magnificent views of Bergen.

Enjoy a walk in the Troll Forest, a film setting for the movie Frozen which is situated at the top. Take a picnic with you and enjoy sitting at the lake at Skomakerdiket on Mount Fløyen and canoe on the lake. There is a café and restaurant at the top if you prefer a full meal after a leisurely day sailing. These will be precious memories made with your family and friends in Norway.

Guide to Stavanger

A humble port town brimming with Norwegian charm

Perched in a southwesterly corner of Norway’s coast, Stavanger is a quintessential Norwegian town filled with ancient tales and fairytale charm. Famous for its many attractions, both natural and man-made, any amount of time spent here during your Norwegian yacht charter vacation will be enriched by its proud history and magnificent landscapes.

Founded in 1125, Stavanger was known for shipbuilding and fish canning until the 20th century, when oil was discovered in the North Sea. Since then it’s been known globally as the Oil Capital of Norway, but rest assured, you won’t see any hint of industrial operations while exploring the town. Instead you’ll find charismatic houses, compelling museums, and dramatic natural vistas as you amble along the fascinating streets.

Perhaps one of the most well-known and beautiful areas of the town is ‘Gamle Stavanger’ or Old Stavanger. Found close to Vågen Harbour, this historic quarter boasts Europe’s best preserved wooden houses. There are over 150 white buildings lining the meandering cobbled streets, providing a backdrop with vintage style street lamps, colourful flowers, and bright front doors, all of which make this protected area one of the best places to see during your trip to Stavanger. You’ll feel as if you’ve taken a step back in time as you tread the narrow lanes, once populated with the workers of the sardine canning industry.

If history buffs are not satisfied there, they can learn more just a short distance from the picturesque old town. The Stavanger Maritime Museum will allow you to peek further into the town’s history and learn what life was like during its ship building days. There are also two further museums which are well worth a visit, where the exhibitions are particularly interesting and surprisingly interactive. The Norwegian Canning Museum and the Norwegian Petroleum Museum are brilliantly engaging for children and adults alike, and you’ll learn a lot about the rich history of the town in a fairly short space of time, as it doesn’t take long to walk around these attractions.

For a break from the sights, head to the harbour overlooking the beautiful reflective waters of Vågen Bay. A few minutes walk from Old Stavanger, cafes and restaurants line the street and it’s the perfect spot to stop for lunch. Admire the glittering waters of the bay, as you enjoy a sumptuous seafood lunch at Fisketorget, or partake in an Italian coffee and some people watching at Villa 22 Trattoria, as you while away an hour or two. While you explore the area don’t forget to look down at your feet as you wander around the Path of Peace, and try to spot the tiles of footprints belonging to past Nobel Peace Prize winners.

A short walk from the quaint harbour area is Domkirke, Stavanger’s recently restored medieval cathedral. Majestically rising above the charming Scandinavian buildings, its gothic architecture and colourful stained glass windows are imposingly beautiful. Domkirke is one of the most well maintained old churches in Norway and has been in constant use since the 1300s. A mere stone’s throw away from here is Lake Breiavatnet, a man-made lake in the middle of Byparken with an impressive fountain. The two compliment each other exquisitely, and provide a serene haven in the centre of the town.

Norway’s stunning fjords are, of course, one of the main attractions for visitors every year, and Stavanger’s neighbouring Lysefjord is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country. Boat tours are available, or sail your crewed yacht charter deep into the stunning region, where the sheer rock faces loom over you on both sides and roaring waterfalls plunge into the inky depths below. 

The hike up to ‘Preikestolen’, or the Pulpit Rock, is one of the most popular in Norway, with visitors coming from all over the world purely to experience it for themselves. Admiring it from the confines of a boat on the waters below, doesn’t compare to the exhilaration of standing on top of it after completing the 4 hour climb. Your reward is one of the most spectacular views in the world, and the entire experience will undoubtably be a memory you won’t forget. 

All the physical excitement during the day will undoubtedly put you in search of dining options, and the Michelin-starred RE-NAA will certainly satisfy your hunger. Providing a unique tasting journey across 20 servings, their menu is predominantly seafood and was created using the best produce available. If you’re in the mood for sushi, Michelin-starred Sabi Omakase comes highly recommended. A smaller establishment with only 10 exclusive seats, it’s a truly singular dining experience and one that you’ll need to make reservations for.

The idyllic marina in Stavanger is situated close to the hub of the town and can accommodate yachts up to 60m in length and 3m in draught. From here you’ll have convenient access to everything this quaint port town has to offer. To incorporate this authentically Norwegian town and it’s stunning surrounding landscape into your next private yacht charter trip, take a look at the entire fleet of superyachts availble for Norway yacht charters .
