Day 1-3 – Sailing from Reykjavik to Torshavn on the Faroe Islands
This is the first leg of a route that the Vikings and sea-travellers have taken for centuries in order to enter and exit Iceland. Depending on weather and wind we’ll use 2-3 days from Reykjavik to the Faroe Islands where we’ll disembark in Torshavn.
Day 4 – Disembarkation and spending time on the Faroe Islands
This day will be spent on land in Torshavn and the surrounding area. How much time we spend here will depend on the following days, but with mainly northern or southern winds this time a year, we have good chances for favorable winds. During the evening we’ll prepare for an early start towards Shetland the following morning.
Day 5-6 – From the Faroe Islands to Shetland
The trip to Shetland will take 1-2 days. If the weather report for the following days are favourable, we’ll get all the way to Lerwick and can spend some time there. If not we’ll just sail on through towards Norway without spending much time on Shetland.
Day 7-8 – North Sea towards Norway, Stadtland and Ålesund
The final evenings of this seven-week expedition will be out on the North Sea. Boat and crew will be excited to get home to Norway.
Day 9 – Ending the trip in Ålesund
We’ll end our trip in Ålesund. The place where Hans and Alf began their journey towards Canada in 1940. A journey that went via Tromsø, Svalbard and Greenland. The same route that we’ve just sailed. Upon arrival in Ålesund we’ll enjoy a better dinner before doing our thanks-off and saying goodbye! We recommend you add some space in your itinerary when travelling home from Ålesund. Book your tickets late on the 1. or 2. of October, or book a flexible ticket. You may even not book a ticket at all. This could be favorable if we were to spend some extra time on Faroe Islands or Shetland, be delayed by weather or simply don’t feel like returning to every-day life right away!
