MEETING AT THE PIER IN BROSUNDET/ÅLESUND
We gather in Brosundet in Ålesund, where Jolly will be waiting for you.
We will share our first dinner together aboard and later we will do a guided city strawl.
We will spend the night in Ålesund tonight depending on your arrival
CATCH OUR FOOD DAY
Today we’ll wake up early and prepare ourselves for “catch our own food day”.
We will sail from Alesund early in the morning and head towards Liadal. In Liadal we will prepare our shellfish traps and set our nets.
While we are waiting for our catch we use our time to explore the area.
The after ski will be in Christian Gaard, one of the most beautiful fjord farms in the fjord.
SAILING INTO THE FJORD TO EXPERIENCE THE FJORDLIFE
We start our day by hoisting our traps and pulling our net. We clear out the catch and start to refine it and prepare our menu. We collaborate and help each other out with the food before we hoist our sails and continue into Hjørundfjorden and Trandal. At trandal we have our delicious dinner at their restaurant and if there is a clear sky we make some hot toddy or chocolate and take the boat mid fjord to see the stars from there.
FJORD VILLAGE, FJORD SAUNA, FJORD LIFE
After our breakfast we sail further in the fjord and towards Urke.
In Urke we meet up with our guides who are going to take us snowshoeing up the mountain, and maybe we will reach all the way up to a peak with panoramic views this day. After the long hike we gather at the fjord pub and later we finish the wonderful day off with a relaxing fjord sauna. Do you dare to jump in the water ?
*There are also options for kayaking this day. Both not possible and the whole group needs to do the same activity.
THE INNERMOSTPART OF THE HJØRUNDFJORDEN
We wake up in the morning and enjoy the sunrise, the crisp cold air and our warm coffee in our hands and set sails for Bjørke and the deepest point in the fjord. On our way to Bjørke we will stop at the one and only wineyard in Norway for wine and cider tasting before we continue our journey further into the fjord. When we arrive we eat our dinner and we will do a cultural strawl in the tiny village before we make a bond fire on the shoreline. If we are short on fish we will also set a net here. This is good ground for winter fishing and maybe we will be so lucky to catch a couple of Hake’s.
THE INNERMOSTPART OF THE HJØRUNDFJORDEN
Ahh, nothing better than Bjørke in the morning. No place on the planet which is more peaceful than Bjørke. Waking up completely alone and surrounded by towering snow covered mountains, breathing the ultra refreshing air is an exceptional experience in itself. Today we will put our snowshoes back on our feet and hike up Mt. Kamben. At the top we will make a cozy snofa and enjoy our lunch and breathe the moments.
Once we are back in Jolly we hoist our sails and set course towards Sæbø where we will spend the night and last but not least enjoy our dinner at the fabulous Rekkedal Guest house.
LEAVING THE FJORD:
THE GREAT SAILING DAY
We wake up in a timely manner and enjoy our homey breakfast in peace and perhaps a cold dip in the sea before we walk through the cosy village and up to a fabulous view point where we share our packed lunch and some warm toddy together.
We walk around and explore the area before we head back to the boat and prepare for our trip back to Ålesund which will take us between 5 - 7 hrs.
The dinner will be served aboard today and you will also have the time to explore Ålesund more on your own.
Jolly will be located 3 minutes walk from the bus stop that goes to the airport. Depending on the flights, we will have breakfast on board or prepare a pack to take away.

AFTER SKI AND DINNER IN CHRISTIAN GAARD BYGDETUN
images from IG of @christiangaardbygdetun
Trandal is a small village where no one would believe that anyone lives.
Trandal has no road connection to the outside world, and communication must therefore take place by boat.
Here rests Christian Gaard, a super cosy fjord farm crammed to the hillside. It's here we find peace and unity glazed with astonishing views towards the pointed peaks that rises straight up from the fjord.
A view you can admire in eternity.
At the farm we will be served home made local food, accompanied with brew and a remarkable atmosphere.
A visit to Christian Gaard is a guaranteed memory for life.
URKE KAIHUS AND THE FJORD SAUNA WELLNESS EXPERIENCE
images from IG of @urkekaihus and @urkefjordsauna
Urke Kaihus is a old and authentic pack house reborn and made into a soulful fjord pub with local beer and local food.
We will be visiting this unique place which is located just a few meters away of the fjord sauna and the pier where we will be spending our night.
In the sauna you will have an experience of self care, wellness and LOTS of fun, and do you dare to jump in the icy water ? brr...
Since this is our last night together, we will crown it with a visit to Rekkedal Guest House.
This is an old family farm where some of the buildings are dated as far back as the 15th century.
Rekkedal Gjestehus specialises in tailoring food and wine experiences in a cultural-historical
breath taking environment.
Everything about this place is special, and the food is impeccable.
Lets enjoy our final out of the boat meal.
