Arctic wildlife and nature, Lofoton to Tromsø

Northern Norway

69°38N 19°.0E

Join: Svolvær, Sunday July 22, afternoon.

Leave: Tromsø, Sunday July 29, morning.

We start the trip by sailing north through the Lofoten Mountains, mooring in the bays of Hinnøya and hiking to the top of Vesterålen’s highest mountain, Møsalen. Heading further north we round the Andøya island with waters rich with marine life and ideal for spotting whales, including killer whales. We then set sail towards the spectacular mountain range of Senja, stopping to seek haven at the idyllic Hamn of the Berg Fjord, where you can enjoy a sauna, hot tub and great food. The trip ends with a day’s sail to Tromso, the ‘Paris of the North’.

Day 1 – Our journey begins at 4pm

Check inn and a run through of the week’s program, including safety information on board. Later in the evening we’ll make dinner, spend some time getting to know one another and prepare for the next day’s sail. If we’re ready and the wind is in our favour we might even set sail straight away. -/-/D

Day 2 – Sail to Hinnøya and Lonkanfjorden

After breakfast we set sail towards Hinnøya and Møysalen. We’ll spend the day sailing and practice sail trimming and boat handling. In the evening we’ll prepare for the next day’s hike up to the top of Møysalen, which is part of Møysalen National Park. The park was established in 2003. B/L/D

Day 3 – Hike to the summit of Møysalen

We’ll set off in the morning on what might just be the finest hike the north of Norway has to offer. Møysalen is the highest mountain in Lofoten and Vesterålen at 1262 metres over sea level. When we return to the boats in the afternoon, we’ll set sail north towards Vesterålen and Andøya. Depending on the weather, we’ll either anchor up for the night or sail all the way to Stø on the north tip of Langøya in Vesterålen. B/L/D

Day 4 – Full day sail to Bleik on Andøya

We’ll set off in the morning sailing north towards Bleik on Andøya, where the island rises magnificently from sea behind the long, unique beaches. At Bleik we can surf, kayak, go for a swim or take a stroll through the cultural landscape. Bleik also has a nice little pub, which is open some summer evenings. B/L/D

Day 5 – Whale and seabird safari on Andøya

We’ll start the day with a morning dip on what might just be the finest beach in the north of Norway. Then if we’re lucky the Kafé Jakobine where you’ll find the best cakes and atmosphere is open for us! Around noon we’ll set a course north through the inner channels to Andenes. Here the seabed rises from 1000 to 100 metres north of Andenes, which makes this a good spot to see whales. We’ll continue on to Hamn in Senja where we’ll moor up for the night. Dinner at Hamn restaurant and we may jump in the sauna and hot tub before dinner! B/L/-

Day 6 – Sail to Sommarøya

In the morning you can go for a walk or a paddle around Hamn, or just relax!:) At noon we set sail and first we’ll sail through Bergsfjorden’s archipelago of islands before heading north to Sommarøy. When we get to Sommarøy we’ll stretch our legs a bit on the island before finding an anchorage in a lagoon among the islands and beaches. B/L/D

Day 7 – Regatta to Tromsø

In the morning we’ll get ready for our last day regatta. Now it’s time to show the others what your boat is made of. The finish line for the race is Tromsø harbour; the city we in Norway call “the Paris of the north”! We’ll enjoy a farewell dinner out in Tromsø, and then we see what happens. B/L/-

Day 8 – Breakfast and departure at 10am

Thank you for a great and eventful trip! From “the Paris of the north” the possibilities are endless if you wish to continue travelling around in the north of Norway. B/-/-
