SAILING LOFOTEN ISLANDS
THE BEST WAY TO EXPERIENCE THE LOFOTEN FJORDS
This 6-day adventure includes sailing, hiking, fishing, exploring charming fishing villages, visiting remote arctic fjords, islands, coves and beaches, spotting wildlife and encountering some of the most beautiful coastal locations in the Arctic.
252 million years ago, the Lofoten islands were shaped during the Jurassic period and are still vastly wild.
The Lofoten Islands are characterized by the magnificent scenery of rugged mountains jutting out from the sea with small coastal towns, sheltered inlets, long stretches of white sand beaches and vast areas of untouched wilderness.
Although above the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten Islands experience mild summer temperatures of up to 29°C (84°F) thanks to the warm currents of the gulf stream. The midnight sun provides 24 hours of golden daylight between June-August when the sun stays above the horizon throughout the night.
The choice is yours whether you go hiking, try fishing, or simply kick back and enjoy the scenery aboard Stella Oceana, designed for luxurious comfort, space and stability.
