Join us in the Arctic this summer as we sail through Lofoten, Vesterålen, Senja, and Sommarøy to Tromsø. This will be an eventful and active holiday, where we start the in alpine Lofoten and end in arctic nature further north. If you want to explore the magnificent scenery in this area and experience the rich bird- and wildlife close by, then this is the adventure for you. In previous years, many have found the hike to the peak Møysalen to be the highlight awesome Arctic adventure.
We start the journey by sailing through the Lofoten wall and further into the fjords on Hinnøya, our first destination being the top of Vesterålen’s highest mountain; Møysalen. The majestic towering mountain of 1252 meter above sea level has a great view to both the Lofoten mountains and Vesterålen, and this hike is considered by many as the best mountain hike in northern Norway – and for many of our guests, it has also proved to be the highlight of this trip.
We continue sailing north through Vesterålen to Andøya, then northward and inshore up to Stave and Bleik. At Bleik we visit bird nesting cliffs and explore the unique cultural landscape. Hopefully, the cosy, local pub has open doors for us when arrive this year as well.
Towards Senja we sail around the tip of Andenes, which is known for it’s good opportunities to see whales, and at Senja we seek harbor in Bergfjord’s idyllic Hamn. After a good dinner and unhurried pleasures in the harbor of Hamn, we continue on the “outerside” of Senja up to Sommarøy where we anchor in a natural harbor between the sandy beaches. The trip ends with a regatta the last day towards “Paris of the north” – Tromsø, with a fine dinner on land in one of the city’s exciting restaurants, this last night.
By having a sailboat as a mobile base for land explorations, we get close to nature, wildlife, local culture and the locals living in the areas we land. During the trip, we combine sailing with as much other fun as possible, such as hiking, fishing, kayaking, good food and a bonfire ashore once in a while.
All our planned activities along the way are optional. If you prefer to take a break in the boat and write poems or do yoga, or do nothing at all, that’s what you will do.
