Just wanted to thank you for all the arrangements during our stay in St. Petes. Marianna was an excellent guide who was full of knowledge about the art and history of the city. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and would recommend her highly.

Exploring the Norwegian Fjords during the New Year’s holidays
December 31 – January 7
Day 1. Our Hardangerfjorden voyage starts at Sandnes, a small town situated nearby the Sola airport at the city of Stavanger. You could take a bus or a taxi in order to get to the marina from the airport. There are all the necessary facilities at the marina, including Wi-Fi and a shower. Here we buy the foodstuff and leave for Stavanger, a city where we’ll have the New Year party.
Day 2. In the morning we depart to Lysefjord, where the flat top of the rock of Preikestolen could be seen. We will closely approach one of the waterfalls and visit one of the caverns. We’ll spend the night over at the Frafjord Spa. There are a guest house and an outdoor bubble bath. The total transit time is 6 – 8 hours depending on the weather conditions.
Day 3. We leave the Tau village for the town of Haugesund, where we stay for the night. The total transit time is about 5 hours.
Day 4. Departing for the city of Rosendal. The Barony Rosendal (Baroniet Rosendal) is the main attraction of Rosendal. The place is famous for its historic estate and manor, which is the smallest manor of Scandinavia and is a unique place in the whole Norway. Around 1850, an expansive renaissance garden was laid out around the manor. The restaurant at the manor serves honey ale and the favorite dishes of the baron Ludvig Rosenkrantz, who the history of the estate has begun with. In the evening we leave for the city of Bergen. The total transit time is 14 hours.
Day 5. The city of Bergen is one of the main targets of our itinerary. Here we spend the whole day to see as much attractions as possible. You could start exploring the city with the famous Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf; taking a short ride with the Fløibanen Funicular Railway from the city center to the top of the Fløien Mountain, where you have a great opportunity to view the city, the mountains, the fjords and the sea. You could visit the Edvard Grieg Museum at Troldhaugen and the Bergen Science Centre VILVITE (a natural science and technology visitor center). Stop off at the Fish Market to mingle with the crowds. They have a great variety of seafood there, which you could buy and taste on the spot.
Day 6. Sailing to Leirvik, which is often called ‘Norway in miniature’ for its mountains and plains, forests and fjords. The total transit time is 6 hours.
Days 7 and 8. Sailing to Åkrehamn and then to Stavanger in the morning. The total transit time is 9 hours.
Åkrehamn is an idyllic town famous for its sandy beaches and rocks. Fishing is the main occupation of the locals as it used be many years ago. Each morning the boats leave the harbor and return to the port of Åkrehamn later in the day bringing the haul. You could always buy fresh fish, prawns and crabs at the port.
