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)

Why the Lofoten Islands?
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.
from €1,230 / 8(8) days / 1pers.
Svolvaer is considered the capital of the Lofoten Islands. The city is surrounded by a rocky ridge and a picturesque bay; in the summer months, the mountains are covered with emerald greenery.
Arrival at the marina.
Check-in on the boat after lunch.
Meeting the team.
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).
TROLLSFJORD >>> KABELVOG
There are several museums, and a marine aquarium with many fish, seals and otters.
Henningsvaer is a small fishing town. We will go trekking here - from a height in good weather there are extraordinary views. You probably saw this town on all the postcards from the Lofoten islands. Tiny stone islands stretching into the sea are incredibly beautiful!
There is even a football field in the city on a small island, in the supermarket, we can buy a ball and play
HENNINGSVAER >>> GRAVDAL
From here we can go to the Viking Museum.
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.
DAYS 7 AND 8
REINE >>> SVOLVAER
We will come back to the capital of Lofoten, walk around the city, take a break from trekking.
Check-out from yachts the next day before 09:00. If you wish, you can continue your journey through Norway. Or book the next week of travel to see even more northern beauty!
