ABOUT THE TOUR
This five-hour tour is a scenic luxury cruise to Trollfjord, the most magical and iconic fjord in the Lofoten Islands. The cruising route is spectacular due to its steep-sided mountains, waterfalls, white sand beaches, teel blue water, plentiful eagles, occasional whale and dolphin sightings, and absence of roads. Remote areas, like Trollfjord, are only accessible by boat which ensures this wild and magic place can be preserved for years to come.
With only 12 guests on a 100 foot sailing yacht, you can admire the scenery in a slow, quiet and relaxed atmosphere. With plenty of space and time, you can sit inside or outside, walk around, have coffee, take photos, lay down with pillows and blankets, look for wildlife through binoculars, and upgrade your tour to include the outdoor hot tub to experience ultimate scenic luxury.
Learn about the history & culture of the local sites from the onboard guide, or just enjoy the peace and quiet of the nature that surrounds you. A traditional slow-cooked reindeer soup with fresh bread will be served on the return cruise.
This is a great activity for small groups, families or couples who want to experience both nature, local cuisine & exclusive service on a luxury sailing yacht, while getting a chance to go to one of the most unique fjords in the Lofoten Islands.

DETAILED TOUR DESCRIPTION
We depart Svolvær harbor, the main town of the Lofoten Islands. As we cruise Lofoten and out to Vestfjorden, watch for orca, dolphins and minke whales. Once inside the inlet of Raftsundet, you’ll feel the immensity of the surrounding landscape. This 25 km strait connects the Vestfjorden in the south to the Hadselfjorden in the north. As we set our course to Trollfjord, you might find yourself in awe. Trollfjord is a very narrow fjord, just 100m wide at its opening. It is also a short fjord, just 1km long. With towering 1000m mountains rising straight up from the sea, the dramatic landscape will have you at a loss for words. Once through the narrow opening, the fjord opens up providing 360 degrees views. Depending on the time of the year, this stunning fjord may be fringed with snow-capped mountains, awash with sunlight and waterfalls or even blanketed with Northern lights. Sit back in the hot tub or top deck lounge, take a deep breath and enjoy the scenery and silence. Your local guides will share the history and culture of the local sites as you pass by. Northern Norway, known as Nord Norge, has a unique history - a special combination of geology, 10,000+ years of human inhabitants blending Norse and Sami culture. This is what sets this region apart from the rest of Norway. On our peaceful and silent fjord cruise, you’ll also have the opportunity to taste a traditional slow-cooked reindeer soup. The return cruise is casual with time for eating, soaking in the sights and photography. As your Lofoten adventure comes to a close, we slide back into the Svolvær harbor. You can now say you’ve visited Lofoten and fully experienced Trollfjord, one of the best places in Lofoten.
