Lofoten Island Beach Day
A full day exploring remote, beautiful beaches with mountain backdrops
Sail to anchor
SUP or Kayak
This eight-hour sailing tour is a nature immersion excursion where you will sail to a secluded island beach. Our luxury yacht will drop anchor and bring you ashore where you can try kayaking or SUP, hang out by a beach bonfire, eat delicious BBQ food, jump in the ocean or relax in the outdoor hot tub.
This is a great day full of activity for small groups or families who want to avoid the popular crowded beaches like Kvalvika beach, Haukland beach or Uttakleiv beach. Instead, you want to immerse yourself in the beauty of timeless Norweigan nature, explore remote sandy beaches and see the scenery of the Lofoten Islands from both land and sea.

Kayak or SUP through crystal clear water

If your desired tour dates are not available on the booking calendar, let us know and we may be able to arrange special dates for you.
We depart Svolvær harbor, the main town of the Lofoten Islands. As we cruise Lofoten and out to Vestfjorden, watch for orca, porpoise and humpback whales. Once out on the sea, wind allowing, we’ll set sail for our favourite secluded arctic beach. At anchorage, we’ll dinghy you to the shore where you can explore the area by foot, kayak or paddleboard. Regardless of the activity you choose, keep an eye out for white-tailed eagles and marine mammals. Northern Norway's beaches are stunning; soft white sand or shell beaches edged by clear, turquoise waters all framed by stunning mountain backdrops. It’s no wonder that visitors flock to them, even though the water is cold, the crystal clear waters and mountain peaks are some of Lofotens best features. Your crew will light a beach fire and prepare a BBQ lunch of alpine lamb or freshly caught fish. Relax seaside and enjoy this authentic Norweigan picnic experience. If you’re feeling brave, take a cold plunge in the arctic waters then warm up in our outdoor hot tub. Ice bathing is a popular Norweigan activity and while there’s no ice in summer, taking a plunge at the beach can produce similar benefits. As we pack up and cruise back to our home port, you’ll likely feel rejuvenated, grounded and certainly refreshed from your Lofoten Island beach day. Join us for this Lofoten Islands Beach Day!

Frequently asked questions about Lofoten Islands Beach Day
Is there a minimum number of participants for the tour?
Yes, we have a minimum of 8 guests for our tours. We always strive to do a Lofoten Island Beach Day each day within the season, but if there are too few people booked, we will reschedule your tour to another day or provide you with a full refund.
We cancel because it is both financially and ecologically unsustainable to do a cruise with groups any smaller. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.
What happens if it is raining all day?
Our Lofoten Islands beach day will continue rain or shine. If the weather conditions are unsafe (high winds or storms), we will cancel the tour and either reschedule or provide a full refund.
Sailing Yacht Stella Oceana, our ship, has warm indoor spaces so you can opt to stay warm and dry. On rainy days, the clouds hang low in along the coastline creating an otherworldly experience.
What is available for lunch?
We primarily serve alpine lamb, tea/coffee and cookies. Our food is sourced from local farmers and establishments. This means some items are only available seasonally and everything is of high quality and optimal freshness. All of our food is lovingly prepared by the crew. We are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions.
What wildlife/animals will I see?
You never know what you might encounter in the sea, but some common wild animals that we see are harbor porpoises, orca, humpback whales, other whales, seals, white-tailed eagles, puffins, migrating birds from all over the world and arctic birds. Along the shore you may find a variety of shell fish, sea stars, crabs, urchins and other small, cold water creatures.
Will I get seasick and what if I need medical attention?
We can't guarantee that you won't get seasick, but most people don't experience this discomfort because the boat is so stable. However, in the small chance that you do get seasick, the crew has a lot of experience and can help you so you can enjoy your trip. Northern Norway tends to seem remote and isolated, however, we will always be sailing along the coast where help is never far away. There are local rescue ships and the Norwegian Coast Guard is always operating throughout the entire coast.
