Sailing Norways Fjords And Islands
This stretch of the Norwegian coast has more open water feel where wide fjords lie just inside thousands of low lying islands and skerries. Places we might visit include Kristiansund and Bud before we arrive in the very attractive city of Ålesund. If you have time an extra day in either of the two cities at start and finish of this leg would be worthwhile.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for making my holiday such a memorable one! It was great to be sailing again after all that time and I found that gradually things came back to me and I felt more at ease, so thanks for the encouragement.
I feel lucky to have met such a nice bunch of people, everyone seemed to get on really well which was great. Caroline
Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway and was once the capital during the Viking Age.
Today it is an attractive city with an open spacious feeling. There are lovely walks along the river and colourful old warehouses line the banks in the city centre.
Don’t miss Nidaros Cathedral which dates back to 1070. A centre for pilgrins is notable for the huge number of carvings on it’s facade. We particularly like the little creatures right on the top. Previous Trinovante crew have enjoyed the guided tours at the cathedral.
Trondheim also has a couple of museums and lots of big shops. We think it’s worth spending an extra day here if you have time.
Heading South From Trondheim
Trondheim Fjord is huge, deep, wide and open with sloping farmland and forests along the edges. It was big enough for the Germans to hide a battle ship in during the 2nd world war. The film here was shot sailing just at the entrance to Trondheim fjord and is of a traditional wooden boat called the Nidaros. They were having a cracking sail.
Leaving Trondheim fjord to head southwest the terrain gets more rugged and mountainous on the port hand side whilst on the starboard side there is an almost continuous galaxy of islands and skerries. This stretch of water is called the Trondheim Leia.
Kristiansund is built straddling four main islands and is a main town in the region.
It is an attractive town with lots of good walks among old ornate wooden houses and along the rocky hills and bays that fringe them.
We will almost certainly call in here.
As ever the voyage will be mostly right off the beaten track with remote anchorages mixed with visits to small shore side hamlets. We’ll be catching fish for dinner, walking ashore and enjoying the scenery.
And then we arrive in Ålesund one of Norways most picturesque cities because it 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 at the end of your voyage if you have time.
All voyage notes refer only to possible itineraries – where we sail, the type of sailing, 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.
