Kristiansand (NO) - Stavanger (NO)

Make your way to Lysefjorden, from where you can take an optional hike to the famous Pulpit Rock. Finally you will sail to Stavanger where you will have a day to explore its beautiful fjords, mountains, and long white beaches before disembarking from the ship. Open to Windseekers aged 8 and older, children aged 8-11 sail for free (accompanied by an adult), ages 12-17 must be accompanied by an adult. Excursions not included in the price (approx. EUR 20-40 each). Possible pre-night: come on board an evening before departure for additional EUR 50.

Ports

Kristiansand is the business and cultural capital of southern Norway. The sea and surrounding fjords are perfect for recreational activities like fishing and sailing, and the nearby inland and mountains are ideal for skiing and hiking. In the more urban areas you will find a rich variety of cafes, restaurants, art galleries and museums.

Stavanger is a modern port, but retains a small historic district. The lovely old harbour is a favourite stopover for big cruiseships that tower over the buildings. The city has a lively cultural scene, and is surrounded by numerous outdoor destinations well worth a visit. Explore the narrow, rocky Lysefjord and the mountains Preikestolen and Kjerag, or relax on Jæren's beaches. Make sure to bring hiking boots, as the mountains stand over 1000 meters tall.
