Sailing expedition to the Lofoten Islands. Week 4

In summer, we will go on an expedition on a sailing yacht to the Lofoten Islands. We will admire nature from the water and from the ground, go trekking to the Trollfjord, see mountain lakes, waterfalls and picturesque Norwegian villages, catch fish for lunch and try to find whales.

This time we came up with a completely new route with three parts. You can sign up for one week, or even two at once, to see more of the fantastic northern beauty.

June 19 - 26 (Tromsø - Svolver)

June 26 - July 3 (Start and finish in Svolver)

July 3 - 10 (Svolver - Tromsø)

August 1 - 8 (Start and finish in Svolver)

8 - 15 August (Start and finish in Svolver)

Why the Lofoten Islands?

Northern nature

The Lofoten Islands are about space landscapes, fjords, sheer cliffs, cozy fishing villages, and almost untouched nature. All this is very different from the southern part of the country with large cities and many tourists.

A chance to see whales

Our skipper is an experienced whale hunter. At almost every point on our route, he knows where to find them and how to get as close as possible to them on a yacht. Take a camera and let's go!

Trekking of varying difficulty

We have prepared several trekking routes for you - from the simplest to those requiring some preparation. We will walk along the slopes, see mountain lakes, and enjoy the views of the archipelago from above.

We will visit towns, small fishing villages and different islands, fish and watch whales.

    DAY 2

    TROLLFJORD

    Trollfjord is considered the narrowest and most picturesque fjord in Norway. It is a two-kilometer bay, 100 meters wide, sandwiched between high cliffs. You can trek to the fjord; at the top, you will find a beautiful mountain lake, along which small icebergs drift. It is also home to the largest family of white-tailed eagles (the wingspan of these birds reaches 3 meters).

    DAY 4

    CABELVOG>>> HENNINGSVAER

    DAY 6

    GRAVDAL >>> REINE

    The most beautiful stop on the route is waiting for us. Here, for 200 CZK, you can rent a bicycle to ride along the coast and watch the sunset.

    If you don't feel like riding a bike, you can climb a rather steep slope into the mountains for 500 meters - we guarantee a stunning view. The Reinebringen summit is the main local view point and one of the most impressive in all of Norway.
