You begin your cruise from Bergen at the Bergen Harbor. Your captain and first mate will show you around and help you get settled in. We’ll enjoy a light lunch before setting sail to Florø. As we leave the Bergen harbour, relax on the top deck and soak in the views of the colorful wooden house mixed with modern Scandinavian design. After a night in Florø, we’ll explore the Coastal Museum in Sogn og Fjordane. Showcasing the natural and cultural history of the coast of the region is an excellent introduction to your voyage. Next, we sail to Ålesund, the most important fishing harbor in Norway which played a critical role in shipbuilding and repair until very recently. We’ll dock at a slip in the marina so you can go ashore and enjoy the amenities and culture of Ålesund. A highlight of this stop is the opportunity to kayak or paddle board through the beautiful Brosundet canal that stretches through the center of town. Our next stop is Kristiansund. Be sure to visit the old town in the lower part of Innlandet and take a walk to Klubba and the coast where you can see the Atlantic Ocean Road. We then continue our sail north through Trondheimsleia to the islands of Smøla or Hitra. Here you’ll get to experience a night at anchor before our long-distance sail (130nm) from Hitra to Rørvik. A long sailing day means relaxing, reading, participating in sailing and eating good food all day long. Rørvik is a port town in the Vikna archipelago and our next stop. The municipality consists of around 6,000 islands, islets and reefs. Here at 65°N, just below the Arctic Circle, the locals grow fruit trees and most of the buildings are made of wood, giving Rørvik a quaint small-town feeling. Spend the day exploring by kayak, SUP or on foot. Sailing along the Helgeland coast, we visit the small town of Sandnessjøen. Framed by the seven sisters mountain range, it is our final stop before crossing the arctic circle and sailing into Bodø. The opportunities for photography of the seven sisters are unparalleled from our sea vantage point. You’ve felt the power of the wind in our sails, next experience the power of the tides. Saltstraumen is a narrow strait just outside of Bodø with one of the strongest tidal currents in the world. Experience the maelstrom up close on an evening RIB (rugged inflatable boat) tour. You’ll have the next day to walk the streets of Bodø and enjoy the artsy village vibes. Our final section of coastline is across the open sea area of Vestfjord over to the Lofoten islands. Stopping over in Værøy, you can choose to go on a guided day trip to visit a puffin colony or hike up to mountain tops with incredible views. Then we sail over to the Norwegian fishing village island of Skrova. Again, you can opt to hike to the top of the island with incredible views of steep mountains and coastline or relax on the white-sand beaches. Lofoten sailing isn’t complete with some deep-sea fishing and a trip through Trollfjord, the quintessential of all Norwegian fjords. We end our coastal sailing from Bergen Norway to Lofoten Islands, in Svolær. If you’re keen to see authentic, rural Norway while cruising along the coast, in the comfort of a luxury sailing yacht, then this is the adventure for you!
