Our private charters are currently operating.

After careful monitoring of the ever-evolving environment around COVID-19, and following guidance from local and national health organizations, our charters are currently available to book.  


We follow the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene, but are taking additional measures to ensure our cleaning and disinfection process is even more rigorous.  Yacht charters are an exclusive and private gathering for small groups, so the risk of infection can be well controlled when all guests participate in good hygiene, cough etiquette and social distancing.  


As of 9 November 2020, the government has introduced new national infection control measures:

  • Travelers from red countries must present a certificate of negative COVID-19 test when they arrive in Norway. The test must be taken less than 72 hours before entry. If the person does not present such a test, he or she may be refused entry.

  • Persons, including tourists and visitors, who do not have their own residence or employer or client in Norway must stay in quarantine hotels and test themselves during the quarantine period. This also applies to family members who come to visit relatives in Norway. The Norwegian Directorate of Health is commissioned to study how these requirements can be introduced. Until this is established, border control will be strengthened in accordance with existing regulations.

  • The national infection control measures have been extended for at least three weeks from 25 November. The government will present measures for Christmas and New Year in week 49.
