Nowhere else you will find so many Tall Ships together as in an arrival and departure port of the Tall Ships Races. The ships attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. After a day of enjoying the festivities in Fredrikstad, we will depart in the Parade of Sail with the other ships out to sea. A Cruise-in-Company is not a race, so besides lovely sailing days, we also have time to explore the beautiful Norwegian coast. Wind will determine where we will be going, but the south coast of Norway is very friendly with lots of small islands and beautiful spots to drop our anchor. Small towns like Mandal or Egersund are worth a visit. Just like the harbour of Stavanger. From here on we will start seeing the impressive fjords that Norway is known for. During a day trip on shore, we will climb the Preikestolen for a breath-taking experience.
Preikestolen is a steep and massive cliff 604 meters above Lysefjord. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 meters (82 by 82 feet) and almost flat. There is a good but heavy track leading to the top. Expect a hike of 4 to 5 hours to the top and back.
Just north of Stavanger you will find the Bømlafjord. On this sheltered water between steep mountainsides we sail further north. Bergen is the second largest city of Norway and is known for the ‘Brygge’, the old houses alongside the harbour. With the old waterfront filled with sailing ships it is a fantastic finish to a great trip.
