Starting and ending in Norway's second largest city, Bergen, you will spend 7 nights on board Swan exploring the Hardangerfjord, an area of outstanding natural beauty. At 179 km long, this is one of the longest fjords in the world and offers spectacular scenery, nature and living cultural heritage.

Boarding Swan in Bergen, Norway at 10am, your stay will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails. We will then put this into practice whilst sailing towards the Hardangerfjord for a 7 day exploration of this stunning location.

As well as enjoying a memorable sailing experience, we will make a number of stops along the way, to allow you to soak up the unique culture of this area, take in the stunning scenery and get to know your crew mates better, before returning to Bergen to disembark Friday 28th at 10am.

A voyage on Swan is very much a hands-on experience - you are part of her crew, and work as a team to make your voyage happen. All tasks are shared and everyone joins in, from the most to the least experienced. For more details of what to expect on board please refer to our Welcome Aboard leaflet.

Included in voyage

Included in the price of this trip are sailing instruction, accommodation and all meals for the duration of your stay. For further details on what is included, and what to bring with you, please refer to our kit list.

If you need to fly to or from Bergen to join/leave a voyage Lognair fly direct from many UK airports, including Sumburgh in Shetland, at this time of year.
