Stavanger (NO) - Alesund (NO)

05 July - 15 July 2015

Norwegian Coast voyage 1: Stavanger-Ålesund . Rugged coastlines with bays, inlets, numerous islands and fjords await us in Norway. From Stavanger you will sail north. Enjoy the long summer evenings, eat the fish we caught, climb the Preikstolen, visit the picturesque town of Bergen, explore the Geirangerfjord and watching birds at bird island Runde, Norway at its best! Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

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.

Ålesund is once again host port for The Tall Ships Races in 2015. Ålesund harboured the event for the first time in 2001, in an intimate harbour amongst beautiful fjords, mountains and islands. Consisting out of seven islands, Ålesund is a modern city. In 1904 the city, once built largely of wood, was completely burned down by a sea of flames. After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil.

    "There were dolphins!”, my watch mate told me when I emerged from my cabin. “Hundreds of them! Jumping and blowing! You missed them!” I thought he was pulling my leg, but apparently he wasn’t. When seasickness claims you, you miss …
