Port Name Description
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.
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.
Skagen is Denmark's northernmost city on the tip of Jutland and is the country’s main fishing port. It is well known for its painters as well as watches. The waterfront has daily fish auctions and is thriving especially in the summer months. You will find fascinating nature here with authentic Danish and Scandinavian culture. Some of the important museums include; Skagens Museum, Teddy Bear Museum and the Skagen Bunkermuseum. Other sights worth mentioning are the Skagen Fyr, Water Tower, Drachmanns Grave, The White Lighthouse, Redningsmanden statue and the 'De blev derude' monument in memory of the fisherman who drowned at sea.
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.
Dover is considered the world’s busiest ferry port in the county of Dorset, in South East England. The port faces France across the narrowest part of the English Channel. The surrounding chalk cliffs have become world known as the White Cliffs of Dover. SeaDream will dock adjacent to the passenger terminal. Kindly check the Land Adventures tab for information regarding transfers and private arrangements from our destination specialists.
With over 500 monuments, Harlingen is worth a visit! Harlingen is an old town dating back to 800 as a Viking settlement and later received the city rights in 1234. The town has a very long history of fishing and shipping. The neighboring Wadden Islands create a bustle in the summer months with visitors looking for art, culture, seafood and sport. The top three sights are the Noordhaven which sports the marina and the picturesque homes as well as the town hall dating from the 18th century, the Hannemahuis museum which is dedicated to the towns maritime past, The Stone Man which is a cast iron monument in memory of Governor Caspar de Robles.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Harlingen

Walking Harlingen and the History of the Harlingen Pottery

You and your fellow SeaDream guests will discover how Harlingen has been the cradle of Frisian faience since 1598. Here, the last in its sort, the Harlinger Faience and Tile Factory manufactures faience and tiles using the authentic techniques.

From the pier your licensed guide will lead you through Harlingen on a short walking discovery that will end at the tile factory. Receive a 1 hour explanation to experience the history of Frisian Tile and Pottery and Delftware, combined with a live visit at the craftsman shop showing all the steps to be taken from clay to produce the finalized products.

It is the year 1598, the year in which Frisian pottery and tile manufacturing was born with the establishment of the first Gleybackery of Steffen Gunter de Olde in the Raamstraat of Harlingen. From this time on, Harlingen was one of the major tile and pottery manufacturers of the Netherlands. The discovery of the kiln foundations of the first factory, during excavations in 1987, provided tangible evidence of the early production of various dishes with the year 1614 engraved on them. An exciting aspect of the find was that it concerned the most ancient Frisian majolica known today.

They are the last factory in Holland who operates totally within the original techniques by hand using their own recipes from the 16th century. After the land adventure enjoy a second part of a walking discovery heading back to the yacht.

Franeker and the Eise Eisinga’s Planetarium

Departure from the port of Harlingen through the Frisian Country side for a 20 minute drive toward the city of Franeker which has a long and rich history. There are findings of artifacts that date back to 500 BC. In this period the first terps were built. These are manmade mounds or knolls and were built to be safe from the floods. Before there were any dykes, most villages were built on small patches of dry land, surrounded by marshes. Today, one can see many dykes in the landscape.

You continue your land adventure with a visit to The Eise Eisinga Planetarium in Franeker. The world’s oldest functioning planetarium can be found in the living room of an ordinary canal-side house in Franeker. This accurate working model of the solar system was built between 1774 and 1781 by Eise Eisenga, a wool carder who was fascinated by mathematics and science. He reconstructed the universe to show people that the conjunction of planets on 8 May 1774 was not going to lead to the earth’s destruction.

All the planets in the model track the sun at the same speed as the real planets do. Even today, all those years later, the model still shows the actual position of the planets. This museum is on the shortlist for UNESCO World Heritage.

Walking Discovery of Harlingen and Visit to the Willem Barentsz Museum

Willem Barentsz is one of the most heroic figures in Dutch maritime history. Filled with hope and a burning desire to reach Asia via the North, Barentsz set sail in 1596. However, after only a few weeks, the ship became stranded in the ice at Nova Zembla. After months in the icy Arctic winter the explorer decided to return home with his ship ruined and with half his crew having perished.

This story stimulated volunteers to combine their ideas and craftsmanship to make a reconstruction of the ship used by Willem Barentsz. With the help of students from the surrounding schools they tried to make it look as realistic as possible using the construction methods and materials of the time. You never know, maybe someday the ship will once again set sail… to Nova Zembla.

Rosendal, Hardangerfjord

Evening Adventure and Private Concert

The Rosendal Manor House from 1665 gives a fascinating glimpse into the period when Norway was under Danish rule.

Skagen

Skagen City Highlights

Start in the small, but lively port with fishermen landing the catch of the day (or night!)

First sight will be Skagen Town. You and your fellow guests will pass by the painters Anna & Michael Anchers’ charming house and Holger Drachmanns Home (author & painter), the famous, tiny Brøndum Hotel – frequented by many artists throughout the years. Skagen was the meeting point of the “Skagen Painters”, end of last century and their light, summery pieces of art can be seen in many national and international homes and museums. Next you will head north out of Skagen – to Grenen, the very top of Denmark and board the “Sandormen” (sand worm) minitrain that brings you to the uttermost point of Denmark. Shortly after, you return by the minitrain to the coach and drive to the Westcoast, down to “Old Skagen”. Continue, into the wilderness, where one of the most curious attractions is found: the Buried Church – an old church buried in the sand, where only the upper two thirds of the tower is to be seen!!

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.

** 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!

Notes This is a real hike – kindly dress accordingly. This activity may not be suited for everyone. Please know your limitations.

Fjord Flightseeing via Helicopter

Gather a few of your closest SeaDream friends or family and take this once in a lifetime, breathtaking dramatic Lysefjord, the Pulpit Rock and scenic surroundings of Stavanger from above!

Here your flight begins and you head on an easterly direction towards the Lysefjord which cuts approx. 50 km deep into the mountain. It is considered the wildest, least accessible fjord in the region, surrounded by cliffs which have clearly been worn down by the ice, rising steeply up from the water. 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. Now you turn in direction west, crossing over the mountain landscape dotted with lakes before reaching the fjord once more over Stavanger town, your SeaDream yacht and finally the helipad.
