TRIP DESCRIPTION

SAIL IN WINTER THROUGH THE NORWEGIAN FJORDS AMONG WHALES AND THE NORTHERN LIGHTS.

Northern Norway, and especially the area around Tromsø, are the epicenter of the Northern Lights. From Tromsø we sail towards Skjervøy, discovering small fishing villages and traveling through the snowy mountains to the sea of the Lyngen Alps.

These northern fjords are where the herring flocks arrive every year. These small fish attract large predators; orcas and humpback whales. Since the whales come to our coast to feed, it will be easier to find them where the herring are. In recent years, the main herring area has moved from Tromsø to Skjervøy, but no one knows exactly where the feeding frenzy will take place this year. Fortunately, we are ready to spend the necessary time in the sea to get to where the whales and herring are!

If that wasn’t enough, we also include cod fishing, beach bonfires, and a starlit Jacuzzi.

ITINERARY

Day 1

WELCOME ABOARD

We meet at the port of Tromsø at 3:00 p.m. The crew will explain the boat, the safety routines on board and we will review the program for the week.

Our goal is to leave Tromsø that night, passing through Grøtsundet and having a beautiful view of the Lyngen Alps, bound for Skjervøy, hoping to start the trip with some Northern Lights!

day 2

TO THE WHALES AND THE FISHING VILLAGE OF REINFJORD

After an exciting night of aurora hunting and hopefully a good night’s sleep, we started off easy and set sail after a hearty breakfast. Our goal is to get close to the herring spawning grounds and see our first whales!

Later, we sail to the town of Reinfjord, where they have a long history of fishing, and where we also spend the night. Maybe we can also catch some cod for dinner this afternoon?

Day 3

WHALES, LYNGEN ALPS AND SAUNA NIGHT

Is it not possible to navigate the Alps, you say? This is the day we’ll prove you wrong by cruising the Lyngen Alps. This part of Norway offers spectacular fjords, sounds and mountains where your eyes will never be satisfied and you will want to see more, more, more of this.

After a good day of alpine sailing, hopefully with more whale watching, we’ll dock at Uløya pier. Here they have heated up the sauna and jacuzzi for us, so everything is ready for a swim in the sea under the stars!

Day 4

THE MAGICAL LIGHT OF THE WINTER SEASON

The best part of this season, here in the north, is the changing and always beautiful light. Although we don’t see much sun in winter, the light we do get is often like an endless sunrise and sunset! Perfect for great photos and views of the landscape.

We will spend our last full day together exploring the archipelago north of Tromsø, where we aim to make landfall, hike, and enjoy a bonfire on the beach. We anchor away from the city lights, around Ringvassøya or Kvaløysundet, for our last night, hopefully with an aurora show in the sky!

Day 5

RETURN TO TROMSØ
