It may not be the first thing that you would associate with Norway but the climate can prove to be nice and mild even in the Lofoten Islands to the North of the Arctic Circle.

The Norwegian coast is also unrivalled in its magnificent fjords dropping into the sea. Less well known are the virtually non-existent tides (which I still do not understand). It is not all Fjords though. Consider visiting the Intra-coastal waterway. The charter season in Norway only lasts from April to August but choosing Norway for your charter holiday will be an unforgettable experience.
