As with the sold-out 2025 voyages, the 2026 season will be operated by the newly upgraded SeaDream II.
SeaDream Yacht Club returns to Norway in 2026 – more than doubling the number of voyages and offering more opportunities to experience one-of-a-kind yachting adventures in some of the world’s most spectacular waters.
“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.
The series of voyages, ranging from 7 to 11 nights, will include close encounters with nature, scenic sailing through dramatic fjords, late-night departures, overnight stays in storied locations such as Ålesund or Lofoten Islands, and visits to small communities and secluded yachting harbors inaccessible to bigger ships.
“We have carefully hand-picked some of the most breathtaking, inspiring, and unique destinations in the Northern Hemisphere, and curated them to capture the essence of Norway. This is a perfect destination for small-ship experiences, and there is simply no better way to enjoy the true beauty of Norway than by yachting”, said Brynestad.
As a testament to SeaDream Yacht Club’s deep-rooted connection to Norway, the company proudly operates under the helm of a Norwegian family owner.
“Our Home Ground”
“This is our home ground, and we take great pride in inviting our guests to explore Norway with us. With our small-ship approach, we aim to lead by example in promoting a distinct, more sustainable alternative to mass-tourism, that benefit both our guests and the destinations we visit”, said Brynestad, who was personally involved in crafting the itineraries.
Family owned and operated, SeaDream Yacht Club offers distinct yachting adventures in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Northern Europe on two small, newly upgraded yachts. With a 1-1 crew-to-guest ratio, guests can enjoy unprecedented service, unique all-inclusive culinary experiences and included activities such as watersports directly from the yachts.
The 2026 SeaDream Yacht Club Norway season includes two distinct itineraries:
- Trollfjord & Lofoten Islands: A total of six extended 11-day voyages between Oslo and Tromsø takes guests on adventures above the Arctic Circle into the land of the midnight sun. In addition to spectacular scenic fjords – including the dramatically narrow Trollfjord – guests will experience small communities, close encounters with nature, and in-depth exploration of the Lofoten Islands, including an overnight stay in Reine. Other highlights include picturesque Olden, Vik, Rosendal and Bergen – as well as fabled Skagen, Denmark.
- Yachting The Norwegian Fjords: Continuing the success of the sold-out 2025 season, SeaDream Yacht Club will continue to offer the immensely popular 7-day Yachting the Norwegian Fjords voyages. These carefully curated itineraries will emphasize the benefits of yachting in some of the most spectacular waters on the planet – through fjords, inlets, and quaint villages. Several late-evening departures ensure ample time to explore ashore and interact with the communities visited, such as Rosendal, Vik, Ålesund and Kalvåg. Other highlights include spectacular Vik and Olden, Måløy, and Skagen in Denmark.
- Spectacular European Start: Before venturing to Norway, SeaDream II starts her 2026 European season with the 8-day Portugal, Spain & France Discovery from Lisbon to Bordeaux, that includes an overnight in Vigo, Spain, foodie favorites Bilbao and San Sebastian, Spain, as well as 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. Guests will also experience a transit of the Kiel Canal before ending the voyage in cosmopolitan Oslo, Norway.
