Bergen - Måløy
Join this trip to experience a coastal/fjord cruise that includes a stopover in Balestrand, with its spectacular terrain of mountains and fjords, and culminates in the coastal village of Måløy. Arrive a day early to see Norway’s famous “second city” of Bergen.
This stage takes you from Bergen, Norway’s “second city” and along the west coast to the fishing village of Måløy, with a stopover in the fjord village of Balestrand along the way.
After departure, we sail through a series of immaculate archipelagos while you settle into the unique rhythm of life at sea with your co-sailor colleagues.
And why not arrive a day before departure to explore Bergen, known for its long history of international sea trade. Norway’s “second city” and busiest port, it is now an international hub for shipping, aquaculture, the offshore industry and subsea technology. Surrounded by islands and mountains, Bergen is also a World Heritage site.
We then head inland through the mighty, 204-kilometre-long Sognefjord passing idyllic villages, ancient farmsteads, and lush fruit orchards, before dropping anchor at Balestrand. This village is located amidst a dramatic and beautiful fjord landscape that National Geographic Traveller magazine has called “the world’s most iconic destination”. Balestrand is also an ideal base for a hike up to Keipen, with its spectacular bird’s-eye view of steep mountains, Sognefjord and the ocean.
The final leg of the voyage takes us northward to the peaceful town of Måløy on the island of Vågsøy. Norway’s most important fishing port, Måløy is surrounded by lighthouses, has a beautiful silver sand beach and is close to the famous Kannesteinen rock, molded by the sea into a spectacular mushroom-like shape.
Meals, tea, coffee, water are included. Others drinks on board (available for local prices), field trips, other personal expenses are not included.
