Or would you say it would be a better idea to go somewhere else. I would like to visit several yachting clubs. I found a couple in Bergen. What else would be a destination I should look into?
Bergen is the largest city on the west coast of Norway. I would think you will find direct flights from the Netherlands to Bergen. But Oslo is main hub for national flights.
I don't know what your plans are so it's kind of difficult to give any good advice.
If your plan is to establish some kind of operation on the Norwegian west coast i think Bergen is a good place to start.
What we call "Sørlandet" the stretch from Lindesnes to Risør is a different kind of cruising ground (generally better weather and a little bit warmer in summer)
