-Under the Long Hours of the Midnight Sun-
The Scandinavia and Northern Europe sailing region stretches from the historic British Channel Islands through the scenic fjords and celebrated maritime cities of Scandinavia, with a sailing season from early May through August. It’s then that you’ll experience long hours of daylight under the mythical midnight sun, verdant forests in full flower, and comfortable, summer temperatures ideal for discovering the best of the region. We invite you to yacht Scandinavia and Northern Europe with us during our 2026 season.
The Norwegian Fjords
Nowhere are there fjords to match the grandeur of those in Norway, where the clear water reflects the mountains like a mirror. Sail between soaring granite cliffs and spy mountainside farms, charming villages, and an array of wildlife along this stunning coastline.
Norway’s celebrated archipelago is heralded for its dramatic scenery, with peaks like the Svolvaergeita pinnacle jutting up into the sky. This is where majestic mountains meet brilliantly white sandy beaches, fishing villages dot the coastlines, and hiking trails crisscross their way through some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Europe. Against the backdrop of the midnight sun and small villages, SeaDream overnights in Lofoten.
Oslo is capital, but Bergen is the quintessential Norwegian city. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Bryggen (“old town”) is filled with carefully preserved wooden homes. Restored as shops, cafés and guesthouses, the attractive district looks as though it was lifted from another century. Stroll across Fisketorget, the open-air fish market and allow your senses to take it all in (and be sure to sample some fresh shrimp or smoked peppered mackerel). Ride the funicular to the top of Mount Fløien and admire the sweeping view before heading off to visit composer Edvard Grieg’s birth home.
France’s Atlantic shore between Pointe de Grave (at the mouth of the Gironde River) and Biarritz (at the foot of the Pyrenées), is known as Côte d’Argent. The river narrows near Bordeaux, center to one of the world’s most celebrated wine-producing regions. More than 10,000 vineyards dot the countryside, providing most of the Epicurean nation’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sémillon, Savignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes. During our 2026 season, SeaDream docks in the heart of town and overnights in this charming destination, allowing you to venture off the beaten path and sample your choice of varietals. With hundreds of historical buildings and monuments, dozens of art galleries and museums, and distinctive French cuisine, Bordeaux is simply unmissable.
The British Isles
The islands of Great Britain, Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Inner and Outer Hebrides, the Northern Isles of Orkney and Shetland—and thousands of smaller islands—collectively comprise the dreamy British Isles. Rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, and intimate yachting harbors and ports allow a view of island life you haven’t experienced unless you have approached these destinations by yacht. Yachting through the remote Isles of Scilly and castle-dotted, rural Isle of Man transport you to otherworldly locations.
Dock in Fowey Harbor to explore the small town of Fowey, England, sitting pretty on the south coast of Cornwall, just a stone’s throw away from the Biomes House, the largest contained rainforest, and the award-winning garden restoration project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Established hundreds of years ago as a trading and navel town, Fowey boasts a heady mix of coastal walking paths, quaint streets, and luxe boutiques, backgrounded by a picturesque countryside and thirteenth-century Restormel Castle.
Shetland & Orkney Islands
With seemingly unending miles of coastline and beautiful natural backdrops to explore, the Shetland and Orkney Islands archipelagos lie on the rugged northern tip of Scotland. Ideal for yachting, walking, hiking, and cycling, many of the islands along these shorelines are uninhabited. The calm and clear coastal waters are perfect for kayaking, especially during the summer months, when you can explore from your yacht’s signature water sports marina. In order to maximize your time in these unsurpassed yachting locations, SeaDream overnights in both Lerwick, Scotland and Kirkwall, Scotland.
