Sailors who decide to take a course to one of the Norwegian ports, will certainly not be disappointed and will experience an unforgettable holiday on the water.

The heart of all yachting fans is won by the city of Bergen, ecognized as the capital of the fjords and boasting of charming wooden buildings.

Due to the country's location, Norway's climate can be harsh and the weather varies greatly. A situation in which sunny weather prevails in the north of the country, and cloudy and rainy weather in the south is not unusual. Therefore, it is worth planning a yacht charter in Norway for the period when the best conditions occur - the sailing season in this region falls between June and August. At the turn of July and August, the average temperature is 12 °C, but sometimes it reaches even 30 °C.
