What to Expect from This Voyage
Sail from the Art Deco city of Ålesund through the offlying islands past the sometimes menacing Stad headland (Norway’s Cape Horn). Wander ashore on the peaceful garden island of Silde with its stunning views and surprising deep greenery. This a very choice part of the Norwegian coast with a huge variation of scenery.
Expect day sailing in waters that vary from narrow wooded channels to huge open fjords, time ashore in remote places and iconic cities at the start and finish.
If you like to get out for a walk bring some suitable footwear.
We have loved it all from being at the helm, hoisting sail, fixing fenders and weighing the anchor. Julie
Ålesund was destroyed by fire in 1904 and rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style. Constrained on a narrow peninsula with a backdrop of massive snow capped mountains it’s very much a working sea town, but with lots of lovely buildings to wander among.
It is worth arranging a day here before the start of the voyage if you have time.
Islands And Fjords
After leaving Ålesund we’ll probably head for one of the many off lying islands. The fishing harbour at Fosnavåg is one option.
Rounding the Stad headland on day two is likely – what mood will it be in? Benign or growling? Then maybe we will pop in to the tiny 1.1sq km, car free island of Silda which sits in the centre of some epic fjord scenery.
Or maybe we’ll visit Måløy where the Tall Ships Races were held in 2008 (Trinovante’s first Tall Ships Race) before entering the area of dramatic cliffs and fjords that lie to the south.
As one of the crew you will soon be getting the hang of hoisting and lowering the sails.
The crew will almost certainly be beginners and experienced sailors. We’ll start at the beginning with teaching you the skills for sailing a schooner and everyone will quickly find their own level from there.
Lord Of The Rings Scenery
Europe’s highest sea cliff, Hornlene, is just south of Maloy.
At Botnane two large Bronze Age burial mounds guard the entrance to a sea filled cirque. Our minds fill with images of how this land might have been in the past.
Trinovante then crosses the mouth of Sognefjord, Norways longest fjord and passes Eivindvik in the area where the Viking Gulating (parliament) was once held.
Sheltered anchorages and remote quays
Just before Bergen we might enter a slightly more populated area with pretty, wooded, narrow waterways where people ashore are often close enough to call out and say Hi as Trinovante passes by.
Or may be Trinovante will take the outside route and sail in more open waters among outlying islands before we enter Bergen fjord.
Its worth having a day or so in Bergen if you have time. Its a compact city with several good museums and some very pretty historic areas to walk around. If the weather is nice a ride up the funicular gives you spectacular views of the city below and surrounding fjords and islands right out to sea. You can also hike out further above Bergen.
All voyage notes refer only to possible itineraries – where we sail, passage lengths and the places we call into will be entirely dependent on the wind and weather at the time.

What’s included in the price?
All meals onboard
We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Obviously, if you choose to eat ashore, this is at your own expense. We can cater for most diets, but you must let us know about special diets at the time of booking. We cannot cater for special diets at short notice.
Ships rules are no drinking alcohol at sea or if we are about to sail. This does NOT mean Trinovante is a dry boat – it’s fine to have a drink in the evening when we are at anchor or alongside. We don’t sell alcohol on board so bring your own.
