ITINERARY

The best of the Lofoten Islands

Join: Henningsvaer, Sunday 16 July, afternoon.

Leave: Svolvaer, Sunday 23 July, noon.

During the seven days you will experience the ever-changing Lofoten mountains in the magical midnight sun and the beautiful Norwegian summer light. A real visual treat. By sea, we will sail around the archipelago exploring some of the best places Lofoten has to offer. Among our favourites are Troliforden, Kabelvåg, Henningsvaer, Nyvågar, Kalle, Nusfjord, Reine, Unstad.

As we sail along we will hike, fish, kayak, surf and sample local food cooked some days alfresco over an open fire, bathed in the summer light with the backdrop of stunning Lofoten.

Day 1: Welcome 15.00 – We go through the boat, the programme and safety routines on board. In the evening we prepare dinner, get to know the boat and your fellow sailors and start moving the following morning.  The exact tour programme is still to be finalised.

This programme is to be considered as tentative as we might have to make adjustments depending on weather and conditions. This concept is not about doing as much as possible in the least amount of time, but to sail according to the conditions that nature gives us.

On board we have fishing equipment and kayaks and we plan to make good use of these and make the most of our ventures on land as well.

See you in Henningsvær!
