Day 1 | Stavanger to Lysefjord

Meet your yacht in downtown Stavanger and take advantage of the town’s boutique shopping before departing on your fjord adventure. Sip a welcome cocktail while soaking up your first taste of Norway’s stunning scenery. Visit the island of Hidle, a popular tourist spot in the fjords, where you can enjoy dinner before cruising to a secluded overnight anchorage.

Day 2 | Pulpit Rock and Haugesund

Indulge in a hearty breakfast to prepare for your hike to Norway’s famous Pulpit Rock. This beautiful hike takes approximately 3.5 hours, perfect for active cruisers, and you’ll be rewarded with incredible views. Back on board, settle in for lunch en route to Haugesund. History buffs will enjoy a guided tour of the Viking Farm at Avaldsnes. Alternatively, this would be the perfect time to enjoy a spot of fishing before cruising to a serene anchorage.

Day 3 | Akrafjorden to Rosendal

Take an early morning cruise to the Akrafjorden. Families traveling with kids may choose to visit the Trolljuv Adrenalin Park – where the adventurous can zip line across the Trolljuv Gorge and bungee jump from the bridge – or opt for a tractor safari at the Eikemo Mountain Farm. Back on board, ask the captain to position the yacht so you can get photos of the Langfoss waterfall. Then enjoy lunch underway while you cruise to a peaceful anchorage at Rosendal.

Day 4 | Rosendal to Lofthus

Cruise to Norheimsund to visit the Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, then to the port of Lofthus, where you’ll stay overnight. This scenic passage goes via the Kalrassen waterfall, where you can get close enough to fill a glass of water from the yacht. At Lofthus, disembark for a private dining experience in the wine crypt at the Hotel Ullensvang.

Day 5 | Lofthus to Eidfjord

Before setting off this morning, take advantage of the helipad at the Hotel Ullensvang and charter a flight over the Folgefonna Glacier and the Trolltunga viewpoint. Get a little closer with the Trolltunga Zippen – a 600-meter zip line that zooms 200 meters down to the lake below. Then, unwind over lunch while you cruise to the overnight anchorage at Eidfjord. One of the main attractions here is the famous Voringfossen waterfall – best enjoyed from the deck with sundowner cocktails.
