Sailing & Hiking. Board Anne-Margaretha in Spaarndam, near Haarlem, the Netherlands, for the first trip of the season. You will cross the North Sea for Norway, a journey which should take about 3 days. There the plan is to visit Stavanger, Lysefjord, Hardangerfjord and the picturesque, beautiful village of Sundal. Ideally you will sail a lot and discover as many beautiful places as possible – weather permitting, of course. The trip will end in Bergen on the 10th, or 11th in the morning. Open for all windseekers, minimum age 15 years. Important! Please make sure to embark on time since Anne-Margaretha needs to make the bridge opening hours. Disembarkation is planned around noon but it’s best to book your flights back for later in the day – or better yet, book a hotel in Bergen and visit for a bit!
Bergen is the gateway to the Fjords of Norway and a well-established cruise port. It’s an international city packed with history and tradition, a big city with small-town charm and atmosphere. Stroll around old streets and alleyways, and mingle with the crowds at the Fish Market. Saunter along the listed wooden buildings at Bryggen to the old fortress at Bergenhus, or call in at one of Bergen’s museums and galleries. The panoramic views of the city, the fjord and the ocean are breathtaking.
