Day 1

Stavanger to Lysefjord

With a slightly more unpredictable climate than the classic Mediterranean or Caribbean cruising grounds, Norway isn’t necessarily the first location that springs to mind for a luxury yacht vacation. However, for a family-friendly yacht charter with unbeatable scenery and plenty of outdoor pursuits, it is the perfect destination.

Here Damion Moses, captain of 43 metre Daydream - which is currently available for charter in Norway with Ocean Independence - gives us his guide to making the most of the Norwegian fjords on a superyacht.

Day 1 – Stavanger to Lysefjord

Head straight from the airport to meet your yacht in downtown Stavanger – around 30 minutes by taxi – to begin your vacation. If you have time, take a look around this pretty town and make the most of its boutique shopping before beginning your Norway experience.

Once everyone is on board depart from Stavanger for your first fjord adventure in the beautiful Lysefjorden - around a 2 hour cruise. Enjoy a welcome cocktail and lunch underway while soaking up your first taste of Norway’s stunning scenery.

After the Lysefjorden cruise you may also want to visit the Island of Hidle, which has some incredible gardens and is a popular tourist spot in the fjords. Enjoy dinner either at Hidle or on board before cruising to a secluded overnight anchorage.
