SAILING IN GEIRANGER fjord

LET'S EXPLORE THE  WORLD HERITAGE

 

Geirangerfjord is the world known jewel of the Norwegian fjords.

The fjord is in the UNESCO world heritage list for it’s very own reason.

The breath taking landscape with snow-covered mountain tops, waterfalls pouring down thousands of litres minute by minute, old mountain farms located in places you never imagined possible.

Jump on board and let's explore the jewel in the crown together with us.

ALL INCLUSIVE, ALL COSTS COVERED, VERY EXCLUSIVE

 

We have put together an experience we are certain you will embrace for many years. 

For us it is the same level of importance that we create great moments and life lasting memories for you AND that the local businesses also have a benefit of our presence.

 

In our day to day itinerary you will find at least one provider of a local service we benefit from.

 

What's common for them all is that they are as small and unique as we are, eco friendly, have a high environmental focus and they leave a tiny carbon footprint making their business.

Just like us

 

CLEAN, GREEN, SUSTAINABLE HOLLIDAYS EXCLUSIVELY IN SMALL GROUPS

Each trip is planned on a day to day basis, so that the only thing you should need to think about is how to pack and look forward to spending your time with us 

For us, the most important thing is to create a relaxed and calm environment full of new and fantastic impressions and experiences 

It's the moments we live for, lets create them together

Bon voyage!

This is a very easy and accessible place to get to

After a safety brief we head towards Stordal

This will take a little more than 1,5 hr

In Stordal we will be visiting an extraordinary beautiful old church named Rosekyrkja which was build back in 1789. The church is located around a cluster of old buildings. 

Really beautiful

SAILING - HIKING - KAYAK - NATURE - FUN

We wake up early in the morning and enjoy a fantastic breakfast with home made bread and other goodies and head towards Hellesylt.

This beautiful tiny village lies at the head of Sunnylvsfjord, which is a branch of Storfjord, and also close to the entrance of the more famous Geirangerfjord

This trip will take us approximately 4-5 hrs and we will enjoy our lunch and snack on the way while you can relax on deck, read your book, fill your sd-card with breath taking pictures and prepare for the evenings activity

In Hellesylt we have arranged kayak or down stream river rafting. None of them requires any special skills and it will also be adapted to the level of the crew

 

 Worth to mention that none of this is mandatory but included in the ALL INCLUSIVE price 

 

You will also have the time to explore the surroundings your own way.

DAY 3

THE "BUCKET LIST - CHECK" DAY

 ARRIVING TO GEIRANGER

Before we enter the Geiranger Fjord we will have some more fun at Hellesylt and like yesterday we start our day with a delicious breakfast with home made bread

There is so much fun and nice activities to do here

We can arrange snorkelling in the famous Lygnstøylsvatnet where old infrastructure got submerged from a

huge rock fall from Keipen in 1908.

 

It's a spectacular place located in the narrowest walleye in Norway

Before we leave Hellesylt, we will do a cultural heritage stroll in the village.

Hellesylt was an important traffic junction already during the 1700s since the village was strategically located along the inner shipping lane between Bergen and Trondheim. 

Our great poets Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson and Henrik Ibsen have both stepped ashore here and Ibsen stayed in the village for a period when he was working on his most famous play "Brand"

After lunch and the early morning activities we will set course towards Knivsflå. On our way here we will pass 

waterfalls, mountain farms and all the things you do not see on the pictures taken from here

Relaxing on deck cruising along the world heritage is a huge "CHECK" on the bucket list and it's definitely an exclusive experience of it's own

 

Snacks and dinner will be served on board today

      Per Eide- VisitNorway.com

This day we will be Le Grand Explore Gerianger day.

 

We start by taking a quick ride in our dinghy to the drop off and the start of the path up towards Skageflå.

Originally this path was of no means as well secured as today. By 1855 a ledge was carved out of the rock face and before that a ladder was needed to reach the farm. 

The story says that before the path was carved out of the rock, the farmer made sure that the ladder was removed every time the tax collector was around. Resulting in that the authority had to turn around empty handed without any taxes collected from Skageflå. 

 

Once reached the farm we will enjoy the packed lunch and either hike over the mountain towards Homlong where you will be picked up with the dinghy again. This hike will take approximately 3-4 hrs.

 

Alternatively you can be picked up and taken back to Jolly in the dingy and explore other parts of Geiranger by yourself. 

We'll gather back in the boat and get ready to walk up to a beautiful hillside restaurant where we will enjoy a delicious, authentic short range farm produced dinner in probably

one of the most epic scenery the world has to offer.

 

A true Norwegian ALL INCLUSIVE story

Let's take advantage of the endless hours of summer light to discover Geiranger together.

Accommodation

Jolly  is a 49-foot large steel cruiser. This Dutch-built boat has a unique, strong and spacious design that makes her comfortable to sail and enjoy time on. The boat is amply equipped and has spacious outdoor areas. To read more about Jolly, please check this link.

Baggage

Due to limited space in Jolly, we would love you if you bring one piece of luggage in a foldable duffel bag. The west coast can have some rain, so bring your rain gear.  We strongly recommend you to bring a day pack to use for water, food, camera and layers on hikes and trips outside Jolly. Quite boring to carry this in a regular plastic bag.
