Port Name Description
Bergen is the second largest city in Norway. The city was one of nine European cities honoured with the title of European Capital of Culture in the Millennium year.
The "øy" part of the name Øygarden means "island". There are ruins found of these islands that date back to 10.500 BC and if proved to be accurate that will be the oldest proof of people living in Norway. The local museum, The Costal Museum's main exhibition, “Sea and Wind – Earth and Fire”, deals with how energy and resources have been in use for 10 000 years in a typical Norwegian coastal society.
Fjaerland is a village in the municipality of Sogndal, along the Fjaerlandsfjord.The glacier arms Boyabreen and Supelabreen (a part of the Jostedalsbreen glacier) and the Norwegian Glacier Museum are located nearby
Gudvangen is a village in the municipality of Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is a popular tourist destination and is located at the end of the Naeroyfjord where the Naeroydalselvi river empties into the fjord.
Flaam is a village at the inner end of the Aurlandsfjord, an arm of the Sognefjord The village of Flaam is a popular tourist destination and has been so since the late 19th century. Most come to enjoy the spectacular 20-kilometre (12 mi) Flaam railway (Norwegian: Flaamsbana) between Flaam and Myrdal, one of the steepest railway tracks in the world.
This quite village in beautiful surroundings on the north shore of the Sognefjord attracted an artist colony in the early 19th century due to the eerie quality of it's summer light. A wonderful spot for walking and contemplating the wonders of nature. One of the wonders of Balestrand is the enormous wooden hotel built originally to house the landscape artists. It houses a superb collection of art and lounges decorated in "dragon-style" which look out on the summer-lit fjord.
Fjords are formed when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley by abrasion of the surrounding bedrock. Many such valleys were formed during the recent ice age.
The Rosendal Manor House from 1665 gives a fascinating glimpse into the period when Norway was under Danish rule. In 1658, a destitute Danish noble by the name of Ludvig Rosenkrantz struck it lucky in marrying Karen Mowat, Norway's richest hieress. Her money was soon put to use building the Rosendal Manor House in a stunning setting between mountain and fjord. Today, the Manor House and the gardens from 1850 are a living museum. Prior to dinner onboard this evening, we will enjoy a tour of the Manor House and a short concert in the Red Room.
Jondal lies in the heart of the Hardangerfjord, the third longest fjord in the world and Norway's second longest. The Folgefonn glacier offers glacier walks and skiing all summer long at the Folgefonn summer ski center. The Hardangerfjord has a mild summer climate and is the center of fruit-growing in Norway. The nearby Rosendal manor house from 1665 offers a fascinating glimpse into the period when Norway was under Danish rule.
Your SeaDream yacht docks right in the center of this city; the cradle of the Vikings, where Harald Haarfagre (Fairhair) became king of all Norway in 872. Great for strolling, the lovely market place and "Old Stavanger", a cluster of old small white wooden house, are close by the dock. The landscape varies from fjords to steep mountains such as the Lysefjord and the Pulpit Rock, just an hour's boat tour from the city center. Stavanger is also the oil capital of Norway where much of the support for the North Sea oil fields is based. The Petroleum Museum on the waterfront tells the story of this offshore oil adventure.
Lillesand is a town and municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. It is part of the traditional district of Sorlandet.
At the head of the Oslofjord, almost 60 miles from the open sea, lies Norway's capital city, Oslo. Sailing up the fjord we may pass come of the giant ferries that connect Oslo with Denmark and Germany. The first sight that greets us as we sail into the harbour are the impressive walls and towers of Akershus fortress right above the dock and a stones-throw from the city center. The oldest parts of the fortress date from around 1300 although Oslo was established as a Viking settlement 300 years earlier. Today, it is a compact city closely surrounded by mountains and forests. In the winter you can take the tram up to the ski fields. Oslo has a great collection of museums and the eye-popping and unique Vigeland sculpture park with hundreds of larger-than-life granite nudes. Relax at the Aker Brygge waterside restaurant area a short stroll from the dock where you can watch the boat traffic in the harbour and the promenading population. On a nice evening, everyone in town appears to be out
With it's island setting and relaxed air, Marstrand conveys the essence of the fishing villages that dot the west coast of Sweden. It's white-painted wooden buildings house a population of about 1,500....but that is in the winter. In the summer the town buzzes with boats and summer guests. It has become an upmarket destination for sailors and city-slickers alike and is the center for sailing on Sweden's west coast
Copenhagen has been the capital of Denmark for quite a few years....form 1417, to be precise. Despite being the capital, it is not a very big city, with a population of just over 1 million. It is a friendly and laid-back city with most of the sights compressed within the central "Slotsholmen" (castle island) area. You will find your SeaDream yacht docked close to the city center within walking distance of the much-photgraphed Nyhavn canal-side restaurant area and the famous "Little Mermaid" statue on the waterside. The medieval center of Copenhagen is great for strolling. Pass by the Tivoli Gardens and continue down the longest shopping street in Europe, the pedestrianised "Stroget". The modern, efficient airport of Kastrup is only about 6 miles out of the city center and transport to and from is very easy.
Balestrand, Sognefjord

Guided Walk Through Balestrand Village

Thanks to the spectacular setting on the mighty Sognefjord, the King of the Fjords, the village of Balestrand is a gem of a village.. We know for certain the site has been inhabited for a very long time, as there are two burial mounds from the year 800 A.D. Nearer to our time many artists/painters settled here, and had villas built in the so-called dragon-style. A walk through the village will make you acquainted with this charming and tranquil settlement. You will visit the nearby St Olav's church, known as the English church locally. The church was built at the beginning of this century for the many English tourists who came here as regular guests year after year. It is entirely constructed of wood and looks very much like a traditional Norwegian "stavechurch". Continuing the walk you pass the burial mounds where a statue of King Bele has been erected, a gift from the German emperor Wilhelm II who was among the many celebrities that came here regularly in the old days. You will also pass several of the characteristic wooden villas that in former days was built as summer houses for the many artists that gathered here every summer. These villas are all built in wood with dragonheads and other ornaments on the roofs. The return to the center of Balestrand goes via a somewhat different route and you can admire the beautiful surroundings, the characteristically shaped mountains, the fjord and peaceful, green pastures dotted with farms. Finally, you will visit the traditional Kvikne's hotel, built in the late 1800's. The hotel contains art by many of Norway's painters from the so-called "Golden Age Period". Also the characteristic furniture in dragon-style is of great interest.

Bergen

Lysøen Island & Ole Bull

Note: This particular Land Adventure is designed for guests calling to Bergen on August 13th not for those disembarking in Bergen on July 26. This Land Adventure begins from the SeaDream Pier and soon after you will pass the Bergenhus fortress with the old Coronation Hall dating back to 1261 when Bergen was the capital of Norway. Next you pass by the characteristic gable houses at Bryggen and the colourful fish market and continue through the heart of Bergen, passing the central park and lake with its many art galleries. You proceed into the scenic surroundings and arrive at the Lysefjord with its many wood clad islands. Here you enter a small boat to cross the fjord to Lysoen Island where the famous violinist and composer Ole Bull - the Nordic Paganini - built his summer-residence in 1872-73. This very original structure is well worth a visit, both the exterior and interior. From the pier you will have a short walk on a gravel path up to the house where we will have an orientation of the building and learn the fascinating story of Ole Bull’s life – which was something like a rock-star in those bygone days. Refreshments will be served before returning to the pier. Back on the mainland we return to Bergen centre and your SeaDream yacht.

Note: This particular Land Adventure is designed for guests calling to Bergen on August 13th. For guests disembarking or in transit on July 26th this can be an option if you have late flights or staying overnight in Bergen. Kindly discuss options with the Club Director on board. Bergen is a city full of contrasts, a mixture of new and old side by side. Your SeaDream walk takes you along the Bergenhus fortress dating back to the Middle Ages with the old coronation hall and the tower of Rosenkranz. Shortly after you start off on foot from the pier you will reach Bryggen, the old Hanseatic merchant buildings from 1702, when a disastrous fire struck the area. However, they were rebuilt like they stood in the Middle Ages. The whole area is under Protection, and listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Walk up one of the narrow alleyways running between the rows of houses. Today artists and craftsmen have moved in and facing the harbor are restaurants and shops of various kinds. The Hanseates settled in Bergen at the middle of the 14th century. They had the monopoly on the trade with Northern Norway for nearly 300 years that was a barter trade, the Norwegians from the North part of the country brought their stockfish, dried cod, to Bergen and went back with grain, spices, textiles etc. Thereafter you shall pay a visit to the Hanseatic Museum aiming to give an authentic picture of the working life of the German merchants and the apprentices – before returning to the yacht on foot.

Troldhaugen & Fantoft Stavechurchl

Note: This particular Land Adventure is designed for guests calling to Bergen on August 13th. For guests disembarking or in transit on July 26th this can be an option if you have late flights or staying overnight in Bergen. Kindly discuss options with the Club Director on board. When King Olav Kyrre founded the city of Bergen in 1070, there was already a busy trading center on the site. The sea faring people of the world have left many traces here buildings, place names, usage and traditions. Today, as you sail up the Byfjorden, you are entering not only a modern port but also a place with a long seafaring tradition framed by seven mountains and with the fjord in front. The first sights we pass on your SeaDream Land Adventure is Håkonshallen the city's Festive Hall erected in 1261, and the Rosenkrantz Tower built in 1560. Next, you will pass the old buildings of Bryggen the Hanseatic Quarters overlooking the harbor. In 1350 the Hanseatic League was established in Bergen and controlled all trade along the Norwegian coast for more than 200 years. Opposite Bryggen is the market place with its bustling open air market. You continue through the center, passing the central park and lake before heading in southerly direction through attractive suburbs to the new Fantoft Stavechurch, rebuilt after a fire in 1992 that destroyed the old church from 1150. The new church is constructed exactly like the ones that were built in the Middle Ages, using timber from the Sognefjord area; north of Bergen. In the Middle Ages there were at least 800 of these very typical churches in Norway, today, there are only about 30 left. You continue to the composer Edvard Grieg's home "Troldhaugen", overlooking lake Nordaas. After a quick stroll in the fresh air you arrive at Troldhaugen where you will visit the villa built in Victorian style in 1885 where the composer spent the last 22 summers of his life. Here he found inspiration to write a lot of his music. We have time to walk through the grounds - both Edvard Grieg and his wife Nina have found their last resting place in the garden. The return goes via a different route back to the city center and your SeaDream yacht docked in Bergen.

Fjaerland, Sognefjord

Glaciers and Glacier Center

Norway has a long tradition in glacier and polar scientific research. In our industrial world where pollution is an increasing problem this research is of great importance. The aim is also to obtain better knowledge of the nature surrounding us. Most Norwegians are keen nature lovers, and living in pact with nature is an important part of the culture. Surrounded by steep mountainsides and numerous tiny waterfalls, the Fjærlandsfjord, a narrow branch of the mighty Sognefjord, stretches some 25 km to the north. This little community with its neighbor Mundal, where former American vice-president Walter Mondale's forefathers came from, lies at the foot of a branch of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier, mainland Europe's largest, and this is where the Norwegian Glacier Centre has been built. Shortly after the coaches leave the landing stage you will arrive at the Glacier Centre where the general idea is to give information about glaciers and their activity. A film will show you most of the 24 glacier tongues that descend from the Jostedalsbreen glacier as well as skiing activities on the glacier. A walk through the center will give you the opportunity to make your own small experiments with real glacier ice and a glacier model has been constructed to give you the feeling of being under the glacier in simulated ice caves and crevasses. After this visit you proceed to the end of the valley where there is a good view to the Boya Glacier, an arm of the Jostedalsglacier that stretches down the steep mountainside towards the valley below. A short coffee stop is made at the attractive Baevasshytta where you can sit and watch the scenery through panoramic windows before continuing to a viewing point for another glacier-arm the Supphelle Glacier, also "hanging" up on the mountainside.

Flaam, Sognefjord

Flaam Valley by Train and Bike

The Flaam railroad is one of the most interesting stretches of railroad engineering in the world. Only 12 miles in length it runs from sea level to Myrdal Station at an altitude of almost 3,000 feet. Leaving by train from the station situated in Flaam at the head of the Aurlandsfjord, you travel along the Flaam river, one of the best salmon-rivers in the West Country. On the right hand side is the Rjoande Waterfall with a sheer drop of 500 feet and the impressive peak of Vibmesnosi. After passing through the longest tunnel at Naali, a most fantastic sight is revealed. To climb the 300 m. high Myrdalsberg the line is built on 4 levels. From here you can view 3 of them, the train standing on the 4th. You can also see the old road that was constructed in 1895 96, in connection with the building of the Bergen Oslo Railroad that was opened in 1909. The road ascends the steep hills in 21 narrow hairpin bends with an attractive waterfall next to it. You will make a brief stop at Kjosfossen Waterfall to let all guests off the train in order to photograph the spectacular waterfall. You stay on the train to the top at Myrdal and then travel back down to Berekvam station, over half way down the Flaam Railway. Here you will leave the train where your bikes and equipment are waiting for you. Now we continue to Flaam by bike. The downhill bike ride follows a narrow gravel road along the river with spectacular views of the waterfalls, mountains and valley. If you like you can even fill your water bottle from the river and streams along the way.

Mountains and Rugged Valleys

Your SeaDream Land Adventure begins in Flaam, a small village at the head of the Aurlandsfjord, one of the many arms of the Sognefjord. Here you take the Flaam train that in the course of a mere approx. 50 minutes brings you from sea level up to a height of nearly 3,000 feet with an ascent of 1 in 18 over a distance of only 12 miles. This railway line is a masterpiece of engineering. The line winds its way through the steep and narrow Flaamsdalen Valley with several viewpoints where the train either stops or goes slowly like at Kjosfossen Waterfall. High in the mountains at Myrdal there is a change of trains. As you approach the town of Voss, the landscape changes to that of a high mountain valley. After having enjoyed lunch in Voss you continue the land adventure by bus to Vinje, making a photo stop on the way at the Tvinne waterfall, that cascades down the cliff side. You pass through the hamlets Vinje and Oppheim with the idyllic Oppheims lake, past farms and orchards, lakes and rivers, before you arrive at the well-known Stalheim Hotel, perched on a cliff with thundering waterfalls on either side that drop down to the valley floor. Near the hotel is the impressive open-air Stalheim Folk Museum consisting of buildings spanning a time period from the late middle ages through pre-war rural Norway. It offers a glimpses of the everyday life in rural Norway from the late middle ages. At Stalheim you have refreshments and can afterwards enjoy a spectacular view of the Naeroy valley from the terrace before we begin the descent of Stalheimskleivene Serpentine Road, Europe's steepest road with a drop of 1 in 5, 13 hairpin bends and a great view.

Jondal, Hardangerfjord

Hardanger Nature and Traditions

When Norwegians hear the name Hardanger, they associate it with beautiful nature, fruit orchards, national costumes and the Hardanger Fiddle. This SeaDream Land Adventure will offer an introduction to the area and the traditions. The road from Jondal to little village of Utne is ultra-scenic and is now part of the National Tourist Road project in Norway. For most of the way it follows the shore of the Hardangerfjord through a green landscape bordered by the fjord and the mountains. Hardanger is one of the orchards of Norway. The mild climate and the long days during summer, surprising at latitude of 60 degrees north (almost that of Anchorage, Alaska), is favorable for growing tasty fruit and berries. In the Utne village you will visit The Hardanger Open Air Folk Museum. Culture and traditions are still strong in Hardanger and at the Museum one can see exhibitions of the Hardanger Fiddle, which looks like a violin; it is richly decorated and its special echoing overtone comes from the four or five sympathetic strings running underneath the regular stings. There are also exhibitions of the Hardanger National Costume, The special Hardanger Embroidery and buildings from the district which have been moved here. Continue to the charming little Utne Hotel which has welcomed guests since 1722, with its old traditions and interior for refreshments, before returning to Jondal via the same road.

Hike on The Folgefonna Glacier

The short distance from the fjord to the glacier is the reason Jondal is called the village at the foot of the Folgefonna. There are no other places in Norway where you can drive with a bus directly to the glacier less than 15 miles. The transport will bring you to about 4,000 feet above sea level. Here you will meet your Glacier Guide, be equipped with helmets, ropes, harness and ice-axe if it is deemed necessary due to the snow or ice condition - and if the snow is soft the guests will be supplied with snow-shoes. If you have hired extra equipment such as mountain outfit or mountain boots, these will be fitted here. There will also be a safety briefing before you venture off on your guided hike on the glacier. The distance of the hike depend on the wishes and fitness of the guests. If the group is large enough to have more than one guide the group can split into one for the eager hikers, and one for the more leisurely walk. The group will follow the pace of the slowest guests. The route will start at about 4,000 feet and ascend to about 4,600 feet above sea level. There are good views, weather permitting, and during the hike the guide will inform you about nature and culture, and what the glacier can tell us about the climate. If required, you can order sledges for the return. Refreshments and a light snack will are available in the basic ski-cabin.

Notes Warm garments are required as well as mountain boots, gloves, fleece and a wind and waterproof jacket and wind and waterproof pants are a must even on a summer day, as the weather may change quickly. To dress in layers is recommended. Boots, jacket and pants can be rented, but need to be ordered in advance. A small back-pack is recommended for extra clothing, water etc. Please remember sun-protection even if it is overcast, you can get sun-burned. You can also pre-order Sledges for the return. In early June the glacier is normally covered by snow and you will not see any blue ice. To most people - even on an overcast day - the Norwegian mountains brings adventure and memorable experiences, however, the glacier guides can cancel the tour on a short notice due to weather and snow conditions. In that case they will offer a hike closer to Jondal Village, Please note that this tour is not recommended for people with a heart condition or limited physical ability. Kindly also note that all activity tours like this one always have elements of the danger involved and you will be required to sign a waiver.

Lillesand

Guided Walk in Lillesand

Join your fellow SeaDreamers for a guided walk of the charming small town of Lillesand. In 1821, when Lillesand became a privileged port, it had a population of only 300 inhabitants and had nine shipyards. By 1895 the merchant fleet was 95 vessels strong, but as the sailing ships disappeared, Lillesand suffered economic difficulties and Shipyards were closed. Many of the residents immigrated from Lillesand to the United States. Lillesand remained a fishing village, and is today a popular small coastal village. The first stop on the city walk will be at the Lillesand Seafarers Museum to get a glimpse of how the first shipyard owners lived. After a guided walk amongst the small wooden houses of the idyllic town center, you arrive at the venerable and historic “Hotel Norge”. Here you will enjoy fresh coffee and a piece of tasty homemade cake in unique surroundings. This beautiful landmark has preserved the interior and the atmosphere from the 1890s, and has accommodated many famous people throughout the years. Continue the walk to the local jewelry workshop of “Wilhelmine”. Goldsmith Trine Wilhelmine Rønnevig has designed her own jewelry for about 30 years and has become very popular in southern Norway. Finally finishing off your city walk with the popular “soft ice-cream” served in a cone biscuit while you stroll the last few meters to the pier.

Marstrand

Marstrand Town and Carlsten Fortress

Sweden's west coast is her sunshine coast and has become the most popular holiday region in the country. The area is dotted with picturesque fishing villages, inlets and idyllic coastal resorts. On foot you will explore the small medieval town, dominated by the 17th century Carlstens Fortress. Marstrand has a very special, turn of the century character, its white wooden houses decoratively carved and its cobbled streets smoothed by centuries of foot traffic. Marstrand is a sailing town par excellence and the harbor throngs with boats of all sizes, shapes and colors. After your stroll through the town there is a rather steep 200 yard walk up to the Carlstens Fortress. For more than 300 years has this huge grey guardian protected the little wooden town below. It used to be associated with war, imprisonment and fear. Today we only think of it as a place of fantastic parties and banquets. Take also the opportunity to enjoy the amazing view from the top of the hill. The guided walk at the fortress is conducted by a special fortress guide, dressed in a uniform as it looked when the fortress was still in the fortress business. After the Fortress exploration you and your fellow SeaDream guests will venture back to the pier and your SeaDream yacht.

Oslo Highlights (and secrets)

Your Land Adventure will cover both well-known and little-known unique highlights of this city on the fjord of 600,000 inhabitants. Holmenkollen Ski Jump: The Holmenkollen ski jump was rebuilt for the 2011 World Championships and is the most modern ski jumping arena in the world. The best jumpers fly almost 500 feet to land at the bottom of the hill. Try to imagine how brave (or crazy) you would have to be to participate in this sport! Holmenkollen hill also offers a spectacular view of the Oslofjord and parts of the city. Vigeland Sculpture Park: This unique park covers 80 acres and features 212 bronze and granite sculptures. In the space of thirty years the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland created - on commission from the city of Oslo - his own world of sculpture. Centrally placed is the monolith with 121 naked human bodies fighting their way upwards. Viking Ship House: The museum out on the peaceful Bygdoy peninsula houses authentic Viking ships that were excavated from burial mounds from the Viking age. The well-preserved vessels serve as an excellent example of the Viking Period's ship-building craftsmanship. The Gokstad ship is a typical seagoing ship, while the Oseberg ship from about 800AD is richly adorned and was probably used for ceremonial purposes. In addition, there is a collection of household implements found during the excavations of the ships, which took place during the last part of the 19th century. Emanuel Vigeland Museum: An exclusive visit. Emanuel Vigeland Museum at Slemdal is one of Oslo's best kept secrets. The museum's main attraction is a barrel-vaulted room, completely covered with fresco paintings. The 800 sq.m. fresco Vita depicts human life from conception till death, in dramatic and often explicitly erotic scenes.. Emanuel Vigeland (1875-1948), Gustav Vigeland's younger brother, erected the building in 1926, intended as a future museum for his sculptures and paintings. He eventually decided that the museum should also serve as a mausoleum. All the windows were closed and his ashes were put to rest in an urn above the entrance door. After a brief drive past other city highlights, the tour ends at the pier.

Rosendal, Hardangerfjord

Evening Adventure and Private Concert

Mansions & Monuments

Stavanger and the surrounding areas have for centuries played a leading part in Norway's maritime history, from the time when the Viking kings battled in Hafrsfjord, through the period of the "white sails" and the steamships up to modern super-tankers. Stavanger is also the most important "Petroleum city" in Norway due to its geographical position. This Land Adventure will introduce some of its history and scenery, and will include: Breidablikk Mansion - modest as most buildings in Norway compared to abroad however, it is the best preserved Mansion house in the country - dating from the 1880's, and with authentic interior. The latest member of the family who grew up in the house was the daughter Olga who died in 1965 and she hardly changed anything, she kept the house and furniture and traditions the way they always been. Ledaal Manor Royal Residence and Manor House Museum was built in 1799/1803 as the summer residence for a prominent local family. Today it serves as a Residence for the Royal Family when they visit Stavanger.

Situated close to the 2,3 km. long Sola Beach chosen as one of the best beaches in the world by Sunday Times. Old Stavanger - consists of small well preserved white-painted wooden cottages surrounded by tiny, colorful gardens, dating back to the 18th and 19th century. It is no museum area, most of the houses are inhabited and narrow lanes with paving stone and old gas lanterns are a charming sight.

** SeaDream Active ** Hike to the Pulpit Rock

The town of Stavanger is the center of the Norwegian petroleum industry. It also happens to be the fourth largest city in Norway. It lies at the entrance to the Gandsfjord and is well protected from the North Sea, of which the region is very dependent. Today's active land adventure takes you by bus along the harbor, getting a glimpse of the busy market as well as the striking building of the newly erected Petroleum museum, to the ferry-pier where you board the ferry to take you across the Hidlefjord to Tau, north-east of the city. The bus takes you through the village of Jørpeland, along the Idsefjord to the Prekestol-chalet where your hike begins. Now you have a “real” hike ahead of you on an uneven path through rugged mountain terrain, dotted with small lakes. This is a very popular area for sport fisherman and hunters, ptarmigan is found in abundance here. You reach the “pulpit”, an almost flat plateau 604 meters above the Lysefjord deep down below. The view is wide to mountains that fall steeply down to sea level, the fjord and waterfalls. This is believed to be one of the most photographed areas in Norway and a must see! The return goes via the same route back to Prekestol-chalet where you pick up your bus and return to Stavanger via the same route with Ferry from Tau. This just may be one of the most rewarding hikes of a lifetime – Don’t miss it!

Only a few places along the fjord is there enough space for small, isolated farms located in a scenic environment. You will pass over the well-known "Pulpit Rock", a cliff completely flat on top and a very popular tourist attraction situated 600 meters above sea level from where there is are marvelous panoramic views of the mountain world that surrounds.
