Bergen (NO) - Rosendal (NO) - Bergen (NO)

25 April - 29 April 2018

Ski & Sail – FEW TICKETS LEFT. Join us on the world’s first Ski & Sail in Rosendal, Western Norway. On the day of embarkation you are invited to bring your skis and enter Statsraad Lehmkuhl in Bergen. The ship will depart in the evening, set the course to Rosendal, and our guests will have the chance to climb the masts and set sails, as long as the weather allows. After a unique night, sleeping in hammocks, you will wake up in beautiful Rosendal. There will be various daytime activities offered, led by Hardanger Åtgaum and Ekstremsportveko, such as guided ski touring, sea kayaking, try kiting and ski sailing and much more. Every night will be concluded with “After Sea” in addition to good food and drinks. On the 29th of April we will set sail again and head back to Bergen. You can buy the outdoor activities separate. You can only choose one activity per day. All meals included. Minimum age 18.

Ports

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.
