Sustainable Sailing & Fragile Landscapes
Tromsø – Whale Watching and Northern Lights
Tromsø, known as the “gateway to the Arctic” is the starting point for many of our Norwegian sailing holidays. Witness the crown jewel of the Arctic sky – the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. Experience this natural phenomenon in the winter months during the Polar Night when there is just a few hours of daylight each day.
As you sail sustainable along Norway’s arctic waters from Tromsø, encounter magnificent whales in their natural habitat. Skjervoy is frequented by all of our small sailing vessels in Tromsø, and is best known for its thriving herring and plankton populations. These attract a variety of whales, from humpback whales to orcas, and makes the perfect destination for a whale watching holiday in Norway.
Lofoten Islands Holidays
The enchanting Lofoten Islands are a haven of dramatic landscapes, pristine beaches, and rich culture heritage. Immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of Norway’s archipelago, where every turn reveals a breathtaking panorama. From hiking and kayaking to fishing and birdwatching, Lofoten offers a myriad of activities for nature lovers. Explore the charming fishing villages that dot the coastline, their iconic red cabins adding a splash of colour to the rugged surroundings. Travelling around these islands is certainly best done under sail, as you discover inlets and fjords only accessible from the water. Wonder at the world famous Trollfjord as you sail through dramatic mountain landscapes and cascading waterfalls. End your day with a beach bonfire on a remote island as you watch the Midnight Sun float on the horizon.
