Norway & Sweden
Luxury Yacht Charter Destination

The fjords of Norway present a land of dramatic snow-drowned peaks and glaciers, vast icefields with imposing icebergs, awe-inspiring wildlife and adventures on an epic scale.

In true explorer style, an exact itinerary in this area will depend on the weather and the state of the sea ice, but suggested routes include Bergen to Bergen, which takes in some of Norway’s finest fjords and towns, and Norway to Svalbard which lies at Europe’s northernmost tip and is the northernmost permanently inhabited spot on the planet.

No trip to Norway is complete without a visit to Sognefjord, which is the country’s longest and deepest fjord.  The Sognefjord has an immense variety of landforms gathered in the one region, ranging from wide-open fjord landscapes and green hills to narrow fjord arms, massive mountain ranges and spectacular blue glaciers.  The city of Alesund should also be on your agenda when in Norway. Famous for its Art Nouveau architecture, Alesund is one of Norway’s most popular destinations and the picturesque harbour is home to one of Europe’s largest fishing fleets.

Not far from Alesund is the Geiranger fjord.  Formed in the shape of an ‘S’, this 20 kilometre-long stretch is unique in its geography and has been confirmed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site.  Not to be missed here are the Seven Sisters waterfalls which, with an average fall of 250 metres, are an impressive sight and particularly so during May to July, which is the major snow melting period.

Whilst visiting Norway’s fjords, try taking to one of the yacht’s kayaks to give a different perspective to the majestic mountain scenery and lush, green vegetation.

Both in complement to Norway and in contrast to it, Scandinavia and Sweden offer a similarly pristine natural beauty but with a more cosmopolitan way of life.  Sweden’s towns are bursting with modern design, with everything from textiles, furniture and household objects to progressive architecture on offer. Sweden takes an increasingly sustainable approach to design and as a country, arguably leads the way in this field.

Lively Stockholm is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world and is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’, with the city itself spread across 14 islands.  The cobblestone streets and ochre-coloured buildings of Gamla Stan (the old town) are home to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum; celebrating the Nobel Prize and the ideas that have helped change and shape the modern world.

Further south, at the tip of Sweden’s coastline, lies the stylish city of Malmö. Abounding in the striking architecture of both the Dutch Renaissance and recent works by Västra Hamnen, as well as charming waterfront districts, Malmö’s dynamic centre is filled with cafés, restaurants, and cool design stores.  Malmö Castle, a 16th-century fortress built by King Christian III of Denmark, houses nature, history and art exhibits and is a perfect onshore excursion if you’re craving a culture injection.
