Join us to Bergen from the Trænafestival. Board the Statsraad Lehmkuhl in Træna and set course for Sandnessjøen along the stunning coast and to Bergen in the West Coast of Norway. As a participant on the expedition to Bergen you get to be an active sailor on one the world’s largest sailing shipsr. 22 sails totaling 2000 sqm on a 98-meter long ship, with 48 meter high masts. You get the opportunity to set sail, be at the helm, climb the rig and become a part of the crew. All hands on deck! The voyage, the festival ticket and the extra nights are sold separately (this voyage starts after the festival). It’s possible to sleep an extra night on board before your journey – price is € 60 p.p.p.n. including breakfast. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Programme Outline

Trænafestival is one of the most remote music festivals in the world, taking place on Norwegian islands of Husøya and Sanna, reachable only by boat. It takes part in the far north in the middle of the summer, when the sun doesn't really set. You can combine your Trænafestival experience with sailing by booking this trip from to Bergen.

“During the festival the ship will be used as an alternative festival camp and for selected festival activities”, says festival director Jim Marthinussen. “We are really looking forward to Statsraad Lehmkuhl visiting Trænafestival”, continues Marthinussen, “both the size and history of the ship is overwhelming in itself, in combination with the energy among the crew and everything they stand for, we feel this is a perfect match”.

Please be aware that this trip starts after the festival. If you want to join the Trænafestival, you need to secure your ticket and accommodation for the festival separately (it's totally worth it!).

Ports

Træna is a group of islands in the Norwegian Sea. Trina municipality consists of over four hundred islands, four of these are populated. Originally Træna was a community of fishermen, today the islands inhabits five hundred people. In Træna you will see nature that is really one of a kind. Every year a cave as big as a church (Kirkehelleren) hosts a music festival. Don’t forget your camera!

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.
