Port Name Description
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.
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
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
Lillesand is a town and municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. It is part of the traditional district of Sorlandet.
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.
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.
Sunndal is located between two of the most famous mountain ranges: Dovre - Sunndalsfjella National and Trollheimen. Sunndal has wild and beautiful scenery with high mountains, fjords and many side valleys. In the mouth of the River Drive and at the beginning of Sunndalsfjorden rises five peaks over 1700m. One of these is Greater Kalkjinn, which is Northern Europe's highest mountains rising straight up from sea level, with its 1886 meters. Sunndale is the largest municipality in Møre region. Approximately 67% of the municipality is protected under the Nature Conservation Act and one third of the Dovre-Sunndalsfjella National Park is located in Sunndale. This is a paradise for hiking, biking visiting the towns sites and even golf.
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.
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.
The town of Aalesund has a spectacular setting across several small islands. A viking town from the 9th Century, it was almost totally destroyed by fire in 1904. With the help of the German emperor, Wilhelm II, a great friend of Norway, the town center area was rebuilt as a harmonious collection of pastel buildings almost all in the Art Nouveau style. Aalesund was recently voted the most beautiful town in Norway. From Aalesund there are some great water-based tour possibilities such as rafting, fishing and high-speed RIB tours.
Geiranger is a small tourist village in Sunnmore. It lies at the head of the Geirangerfjord, which is a branch of the Storfjord. Geiranger is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and has been named the best travel destination in Scandinavia by Lonely Planet.
Olden is a village located at the mouth of the Oldeelva river in the Oldedalen valley along the Nordfjord. The Briksdalsbreen glacier, a popular hiking destination, is located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) south of Olden, at the end of the Oldedalen valley.
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.
Aalesund

Aalesund Highlights

Ålesund, the largest town on the Northwest coast, has a beautiful setting, built on several islands stretching into the ocean. A large part of Ålesund was destroyed by fire in 1904 and rebuilt in the "Art Nouveau style" typical for the first decade of this century. Today it is a bustling town. The drive takes you along the Borgundfjord, through the modern suburbs to the old trading centre of Borgund. Here, in attractive surroundings you will visit the Sunnmøre Open-Air Museum consisting of various types of farmhouses, boathouses etc. which have been moved to this site from all over the region. The Museum also houses a number of different old boats. The shipbuilding traditions go back a long time and boats built here were reckoned to be the most reliable to be found along the coast. Here you find copies of the so-called Kvalsund-boat from the year 700 AD and the even older Fjørtoft-boats. Alongside lies the fishing vessel "HELAND" - better known as the Shetland-bus as it was used to carry Norwegian partisans across the North Sea during the Second World War. Heading back you make a detour up on Mount Aksla to enjoy the view to the town and its surroundings. Continue for the remainder of the Land Adventure on foot – first descending 418 steps toward The Town Park. An attractive park with two statues of historic men that both had a connection to Ålesund – the emperor Wilhelm II of Germany who helped rebuilt the Town after the big fire and the Viking "Gange-Rolf" known as “Rollo” who sailed from Ålesund to what is today Normandy (France), named after the Norwegian settlers. Continue the walk through the town. There will be an emphasis on presenting the importance of the fisheries in Norway's biggest fish-export harbor and not least, you will be shown various examples of the picturesque Art Nouveau-style that has made Ålesund famous as one of the three last "Art Nouveau-cities" in Europe.

Notes Guests must be able to walk approximately 2 miles over even paved and cobblestone surfaces with inclines + the steps from Mt. Aksla. Guests should be in good physical condition. Low heeled, comfortable walking shoes, bottled water, comfortable loose clothing, and a light jacket are recommended. This adventure will operate in all weather conditions so participants should take appropriate weather gear with them. A parent or guardian must accompany children under the age of 16. There will also be a walk and steps on an uneven path through the open-air section Sunnmøre Museum.

Sea Fishing with a local Skipper

SeaDream has arranged a local small traditional fishing boat for you to try your luck at fishing in the waters around Ålesund which is rich in fish like cod, haddock, pollack and saithe. You are not guaranteed a catch, however, there is a very good chance. In good weather the boat will head into the open sea, but if the weather and wind are not playing along there is ample opportunities to go in between the islands and the fjord on the inside of the town. The coastline also offers dramatic scenery as a picturesque backdrop. The skipper will be the fishing guide, but you will also be joined by a licensed touristic guide. Fishing equipment and PDF (Personal Floatation Device) are included, and local fishing licenses are not required for salt water fishing in Norway. There’s enough fishing equipment for 6-8 guests to fish at the same time, so guests will most likely not need to take turns at the rods.

Notes Guests should have good solid shoes, preferably with rubber soles. It is also recommended to dress in layers – with something warm like fleece underneath, and a wind/watertight jacket on top. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity.

Wildlife Sea Safari

This exciting land adventure takes place in Rigid Inflatable Boats, so-called RIB’s. You will be suited up in a PDF (Personal Floating Device), and there will be safety instructions before the RIB heads out of the harbor. The boat will navigate in the coastal waters around Ålesund. In good weather with little wind they can go as far as Runde Birdrock, and in rougher weather more into the sheltered waters on the inside of Ålesund.. There are several various species of birds in the area to see – perhaps even an eagle. The driver will look out for interesting wildlife sights, and often you can go close to a rock where seals are basking. The route is the driver’s decision depending on the weather and the fitness of the guests. After approx. 90 minutes you will be returned safely back to the landing stage.

Notes IMPORTANT:
Guests should be in generally good physical condition and not suffer from any back problems. Guests must be able to swim. If the yacht is berthed, then there is a 300 meter walk from the pier to the landing stage and the RIB’s. If the yacht is at anchor, the tender boats use the same landing stage as the RIB’s. Guests should expect to get wet and wear flat shoes, preferably with rubber soles. Guests are required to sign a waiver form. Guests will be provided with a PDF (Personal Floating Device) and Goggles. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity.

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.

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.

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.

Geiranger

Geiranger's Famous Views

The Geirangerfjord is without doubt one of the most fascinating sights in Norway and was added to the Unesco World Heritage List in 2005. The mountains tower above you on both sides as you pass several waterfalls with stories to their names like the Suitor, the Bridal Veil and the Seven Sisters. At the landing stage in the village of Geiranger you start your land adventure along the fjord before suddenly the road starts winding up the mountainside in 11 hairpin bends. At the uppermost bend, called the Eagle's Bend, you stop to enjoy the view. In the distance you can see old farms, stubbornly clinging on narrow shelves high above the fjord. For generations families made their living up there, and today great efforts are being made to restore and preserve these relics of the past. You return through Geiranger village and continue up the mountainside, climbing higher and higher into the mountain world until you reach Mount Dalsnibba (5,000 ft.) From here, on a clear day, there is a panorama of mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and lakes, and far below you can see the Geirangerfjord. At Djupvasshytta lodge refreshments will be served before you return, and make a stop at the Flydals Gorge for the view of the fjord. On your way back to the village center, you will pass the small white painted octagonal church. Like most Norwegian buildings, it is constructed of wood.

Notes Please note that order of sights may vary. The road past Flydal and Djupvasshytta and the road to Mount Dalsnibba is closed in winter, and the time of opening in spring/early summer depends on the amount of snow in the mountains, and that the danger of avalanches is over. Usually these roads are open by the end of May, but this cannot be guaranteed. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity.

Kayaking on The Geirangerfjord

Geiranger Fjord is one of nature's masterpieces. Its description as "the world's most beautiful fjord" is no exaggeration and it is amidst this dramatic mountain magic that you'll experience some of our most spectacular sea kayaking.

Visit a Mountain Farm

You start by driving the "Eagle's Road" - the only means of communication with the outside world during the wintertime! The "Eagle's Bend" is a wide curve from where there is a splendid views to the fjord below and the mountain world all around. You get a glimpse of the "Seven Sister's" waterfall in the distance as well as some of the abandoned mountain farms clinging to the sheer cliff sides. You soon reach Eidsdal village on the Norddalsfjord and follow the shores on to the village of Norddal. Now you leave the fjord and drive up the valley until you reach the summer farm Herdalssetra, situated at approx. 5000 ft above sea level. The setting is picturesque and during the summer months some 450 goats roam freely, as well as cows, sheep and fjord horses; the blond pony native to the West coast. Goat cheese is being produced; both white and brown, and we can follow some of the procedure. The 30 small, wooden houses with turfed roofs were built under the mighty peak called Heregga, away from the annual avalanches. You get an introduction to cheese making and of course tasting of samples.... On the way down the valley once more we can admire the lovely Heregga River, cascading in several impressive waterfalls. We reach Eidsdal and return to Geiranger via the Eagle's road.

Notes Guests must be able to walk approximately 0.25 mile over even and grassy surfaces with 2 to 5 steps. Comfortable, non-slip shoes are recommended. Note that the animals are moved up to the summer grazing when the snow melts. The tour will visit the home farm if snow conditions do not permit our visit to the summer farm.

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.

Olden, Nordfjord

Briksdal Glacier Lake Safari

Join us in a truly unique experience! From the village of Olden, situated at the end of the innermost arm of the lovely Nordfjord, you drive up the valley past the small Floen Lake, then along the long and narrow Olden Lake, one of Norway's most beautiful lakes, to Rustoen at the far end where colorful farms cover the wide fertile upper valley. On both sides numerous waterfalls descend from the ice field, and in front of us you see the long white tongue of the Melkevoll Glacier.

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 Tour & 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.
