About the cruise
The cruise starts in the Port of Stavanger, in the sheltered harbour close to the Norwegian Petroleum Museum. Our crew will pick you up at your hotel, the airport or the Tourist Information Office in Stavanger and lead you to the harbour, where our sail yacht “Athene” is waiting for you. First you will be welcomed onboard by your captain. Then you will be given a guided tour onboard and shown your private cabins for the cruise.
The crew will give you a short brief on safety and pratical issues before embarking. When cruising the sheltered waters on the way to explore the fjords, you will be encouraged to participate in the tasks onboard. Perhaps you would like to be a navigator and set a bearing, or be a helmsman who controls the ship with the big steering wheels. Or maybe you prefer to sit in comfy cushions and enjoy the landscape and your glass of champagne?
The sailing will not be in exposed waters, but inshore sheltered from the coastal breezes and swell. The weather in the Norwegian Fjords can change rapidly, and you should bring a wide range of clothing. A detailed packing list will be sent prior to the cruise, along with further practical information. As a SailSafari Adventures customer you are fully insured, both aboard and on activities on shore. SailSafari Adventures is a registred member in The Norwegian Travel Guarantee Fund.
