SeaDream will return to Norway in 2026 with twice the sailings

SeaDream II will operate a second consecutive, and larger, Norway season in 2026
SeaDream Yacht Club is returning to Norway in 2026 and will more than double the number of voyages.

This follows a sold-out 2025 season.

'The demand for 2025 surpassed our wildest imaginations. We are thrilled to return in 2026, with even more ways to experience the unparalleled beauty of Norway,' said Atle Brynestad, founder, owner and chairman of SeaDream Yacht Club.

Seven- to 11-day voyages

The 2026 cruises will range from seven to 11 nights, with scenic sailing through fjords, late-night departures, overnight stays in destinations such as Ålesund and the Lofoten Islands, and visits to small communities and harbors inaccessible to bigger ships.

'This is our home ground, and we take great pride in inviting our guests to explore Norway with us,' said Brynestad, who was personally involved in crafting the itineraries.

As with the 2025 voyages, those in 2026 will be operated by SeaDream II.

The 2026 season offers two itineraries.


'Trollfjord & Lofoten Islands'

A total of six 11-day 'Trollfjord & Lofoten Islands' voyages between Oslo and Tromsø travel above the Arctic Circle into the land of the midnight sun. In addition to fjords, including the dramatically narrow Trollfjord, the ship will call at small communities and make an in-depth exploration of the Lofoten Islands, including an overnight at Reine.

Other highlights include Olden, Vik, Rosendal and Bergen, as well as f Skagen, Denmark.


'Yachting the Norwegian Fjords'

Continuing the 2025 season's success, SeaDream will again offer its seven-day 'Yachting the Norwegian Fjords' voyages. These carefully curated itineraries focus on fjords, inlets and villages. Several late-evening departures ensure ample time to explore ashore in places such as Rosendal, Vik, Ålesund and Kalvåg.

Other highlights include Olden, Måløy and Skagen.

Preceded by Lisbon-Bordeaux and Bordeaux-Oslo

Before venturing to Norway, SeaDream II starts its 2026 European season with the eight-day 'Portugal, Spain & France Discovery' from Lisbon to Bordeaux, that includes an overnight at Vigo, Spain, foodie favorites Bilbao and San Sebastian, Spain, and the picturesque fishing village of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France.

The 12-night 'Western Europe & The Kiel Canal' departs from Bordeaux, combining small-island yachting destinations such as Belle Ile (France), Texel Island (Netherlands), Guernsey and Sark (UK), with cities such as Antwerp, Rotterdam and Copenhagen. SeaDream II will transit the Kiel Canal before ending the voyage in Oslo.
