Sailing trip in Norway

The homeland of Vikings attracts tourists with the authenticity and the severe, still, fascinating nature of Scandinavia. Here, the season is short but it could be interesting and memorable for yachtsmen.


The Barents Sea washes the country from the north, the North Sea — from the west, the Skagerrak Strait separates Norway from Denmark in the south. All waters are suitable for yachting during the season. The eastern and southern coasts are more popular among the skippers. Also, to the jurisdiction of Norway, the Svalbard archipelago and more than 50 thousand islands belong. It gives the opportunity to gain the unforgettable sailing experience.


The peak season in Norway lasts for the summer months, September and October are a bit less popular. Winter is ideal for skiing, for sailing, it is too cold.


On the coast of Norway, there are not so many commercial anchorages and marinas. Instead, the rugged rocky shores are abounding with the natural bays, comfortable to moor at. For the sailing yachts longer than 13 m, it is better to arrange a route beforehand as few local ports can host such vessels.


The yacht service and yacht charter in Norway are available in the northern cities Harstad, Bodo, and Tromso. In the south, the boat rental in Stavanger, Bergen, and Oslo is open.

Routes and Events in Norway

The land of Vikings and mythical trolls attracts not only with nature and fjords, but also with the severe glaciers, the incredible waterfalls and mountains, as well as the international music festivals.


June 1−30. The Summer Festival is going on, so Oslo turns into an enormous stage for concerts. Jazz, rock, disco, and electronic music sound from the mini-stages right on the streets.


August 4−6. In the southern town of Risor, the festival exhibition of wooden ships is held, where the sailing fans could get a view of the ancient handmade boats which had been used by the Norwegian sailors as vessels for fishing.

An interesting place for sailors is the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway above the Arctic Circle. The archipelago has very mild winter temperatures thanks to the Gulf Stream.

People talk about Sailica

Rinke Tiegel
Full recommendation. Great service & support. We chartered a Beneteau 45 in Athens for our trip around Peloponnes. Great service and perfect customer support from beginning to the end. Due to corona we had to postpone our trip - Sailica managed all the communication with the charter agency and negotiated a great new deal for us. This was already the 2nd time we charted with Sailica and it won't be the last time. Full recommendation
Kyle Redstone
I took Dufour Grand Large 560 at Croatia using online yacht rental service It's easy to use their mobile app with fair prices and enough quantity of boats which suits to my parameters. Their managers assisted me through whole communication with charter company. It was pleasant to receive a small gift – free of charge transfer from airport to marina. We didn't request it and appreciate their overexpected level of service.

Amazing 1 week in Turkey! I sailed with Sailica on a tour in the gulf of Fethiye in Turkey. Overall it was a great experience and a great crew, even if I did not know them before. The area is amazingly beautiful and if you go in April you can avoid the crowds. The skipper was very proficient and knew what he was doing. Highly recommended!
Mykyta Semenoff
Great company! The guys answered all our questions which were very important since it was our first sailing experience. Moreover, they advised us not only on a charter but also on the tour itself. This was not the responsibility of the company, but we needed help and the company managers helped us for free. I highly recommend the team. The guys are really reliable, proactive and customer-oriented.
Vadim Rogovskiy
Excellent trip to Croatia! The trip was organized on an excellent level since the very beginning - from the yacht search to the trip itself. The team was fast and responsive. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to hang out with family on a beautiful yacht or catamaran!
