The Lofoten Islands cruise in Norway

Norway is the embodiment of mystery, a country of trolls with harsh climate and rich history. It was here that the famous Vikings lived, who sailed on their wooden drakars along the Norwegian Sea and even went out to the Atlantic. Only here you can see the unique fjords and mountain waterfalls of the northern region, flocks of whales and killer whales in the natural environment, and plunge into the Nordic atmosphere of serenity and tranquility.

On a cruise in the Lofoten Islands, you will sail 120 miles in the company of like-minded people, enjoy the Norwegian fjords, have a successful catch, visit the fishing villages with their unique flavor, and experience the true Arctic spirit. You haven’t had such a voyage yet!

    Reine - Henningsvær - Svolvær, 35 nm.

    Henningsvær consists of several islands, located among the rich fishing grounds washed by the waters of Vestfjord. It is built in the style of traditional Norwegian villages with interesting shapes of buildings painted in bright colors. Svolvær is an ancient and the most populated city of the Lofoten Islands, as well as a local administrative center. It is a beautiful city, especially when you look at it from the heights of the mountains surrounding it from all sides. The city consists of many small islands interconnected by elegant bridges, viaducts, and houses painted in bright colors. Gradually, the local fishing industry is losing ground to tourism, because it is from here that numerous tourist routes to the Lofoten Islands start.
