Take an adventure sailing holiday to Norway

You will need to be healthy and reasonably fit to book our adventure sailing holidays, and this Norway trip is no different. 16 day adventure on a 72 foot steel yacht starts and finishes in Portsmouth.

You’ll sail through one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, the Dover Straits, before heading up the North Sea to Norway where we will explore the outstanding natural beauty of the Norwegian Fjords.

After 5 or 6 days of cruising you will sail back to Portsmouth. Sailing to Norway and back will log you about 1,500 miles.

If it’s adventure you want, the Norway holiday has it in buckets.

But perhaps you want something that could require even more stamina…

Take an adventure sailing holiday to the Dover Straits, Dunkirk, IJmuiden, North European Coast, Kiel Canal, Baltic Sea, Copenhagen

Your adventure starts onboard Nectaris, our 42 foot fast cruiser. It leaves from Southampton, then to Copenhagen in Denmark and back again. We will be getting there and back with two mile-building legs in each direction, with a changeover stop in IJmuiden (the north sea port closest to Amsterdam).

There are 4 legs to choose from on this adventure of a lifetime.

  • The first leg goes from Southampton to IJmuiden in the Netherlands on 12-18 June (319nm)
  • The second leg goes from IJmuiden to Copenhagen on 19-25 June (430nm)
  • The third leg is from Copenhagen to IJmuiden on 17-23 July (430nm)
  • The fourth leg is from IJmuiden to Southampton on 24-30 July (319nm)

These are predominantly mile building trips and great for anyone working towards Yachtmaster or just wanting to build miles and get experience of sailing along the South coast of the UK, through the Dover Straits, along the north European coast, through the Kiel Canal and in the Baltic.
