Best Time To Visit: May to September offer good cruising conditions, with the best weather in June-August. The Northern Lights are best seen in winter.
Key Cruising Areas: The fjords and west coast of Norway are memorable areas to sail, with many anchorages and quiet bays to stop in. For a longer sail, the archipelago of Svalbard is an interesting stop.
Don’t Miss: The fjords in Norway are world-famous, and the most stunning of all is Geirangerfjord. Sheer cliffs blanketed in dark green pines rise dramatically from deep blue water, topped with snow and glaciers feeding wild waterfalls that carve through the forests. If that’s not enough, sail around to neighboring Hjorundfjord for more spectacular views.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Europe’s fastest-growing capital, Oslo, is exploding with excellent eateries and lively bars. Of the three ‘Michelin-starred restaurants in Oslo, the exclusive Maaemo is a culinary experience not to be missed.
