THE CRUISE

Norway is not only about the land  - to understand local culture one must make for the open sea. During our cruise, everyone will feel like a Viking, Robinson Crusoe, captain and discoverer.

We set sail in small groups (2-6 persons plus steersman). The smaller boat, the closer to the coastline it can get, and the closer to the coastline, the more interesting the whole cruise is. With a small motorboat, you can sail almost everywhere, and the reception of the surrounding world is surprisingly different from a deck's perspective than from a land.  Our cruises are private and romantic boating trips on the Galtesund strait, the west coast of Tromøy, on shallow Hovekilen bay and Nidelvie river, which after sneaking through Tyholmen and Hisøy escapes to the Skagerrak strait. At the special request of our guests, we can leave them on one of the desert islands to enable them to explore it on their own.

The weather and the time of a day play a significant part during the cruise. Therefore, we change our routes depending on cloud cover and time of sailing out to let you experience the beauty of the Norwegian coast and take nice photos. 

Cruises on the Norwegian coastal waters are nothing like cruises on any other sea of the world. The coastline of Norway is over 25 thousand kilometres long, and it is more than the coastline of all the other European countries in total. Countless bays, small peninsulas, islands and skerries make every cruise explorative and unique.
