Norway anchorage

3 years ago I sailed my OVNI 445 in Norway. Below are two anchorages which I really liked :
- Hydra : 58°13.894N 6°32.109 E : small village on an island, the entrance is gorgeous
- Valoyene : 58°20.361N 8°40.760E : a marvelous group of rocky islands, you anchor in the middle of this lagoon. Picnic on Valoyene with a fire at night.

Re: Norway anchorage

Forgot to mention Eikelandsneset, south of Bergen on the way to Stavenger. A completely secluded lagoon, surrounded by unspoiled trees and nature. An other world.
59°38.861N 5°23.855E
Very good anchorage by 10m.

What time if the year did you visit Valøyene?
It's normally more crowded during summer.

Try again i July - School summer holidays is from late June to mid August and most have their summer vacation in July..

But even mid summer you will find a place to anchor

June and August is the best months if you are wanting to have more room for your self.

The correct name is Hidra
