There you can relax in the sun and enjoy the warmth in the south. In contrast to the water temperature, it can get up to 36 °C here. The further north you go, the cooler it gets. At the very top, however, you will need a thick jacket even in summer, because there is snow all year round.

Facts about Norway

With its long coastline, Norway offers a varied but also challenging sailing area. The length of the coastline is about 3000 km and stretches from the Skagerrak across the North Sea to the Barents Sea. In the west, the coast is cut by the ice ages with many fjords and surrounded by an archipelago. If you measure the coast with all fjords, you get a coast length of more than 25,000 km.

Weather in Norway

Stronger winds should be expected. Within the archipelago, however, there are usually very special wind conditions – wind shading by the offshore mountains is just as possible as jet effects, wind deflections and downbursts. It is essential to watch out for changes in the weather.

Other facts about Norway

The sailing areas of Norway are full of challenges, because depending on the coastal region, the navigational demands are very different. In the archipelago, there are hundreds of rocks above and below the water and the passages are sometimes very narrow. Navigating here requires an increased level of attention. Between the many islands you can easily lose your orientation, it is advisable to keep an eye on your position at all times. Inside the fjords navigation is much easier. Shoals are rare and the individual rocks in the fairway are extensively buoyed.
