LEARN TO SAIL
You will have the opportunity to really learn to sail on this trip. You will learn the curriculum of the RYA Competent Crew course on this adventure so you can be an active member on board!
Known as the "Paris of the North," this city is the largest in Northern Norway. Still with only 75,000 inhabitants you will see a great number of preserved historical homes below the spectacular backdrop of snow-covered mountains.
Harstad is the second and last city we will encounter on the route. Here you can take in the scenery and the towering cliffs on the nearby island. Harstad is a great place for us to stop to rest and enjoy a meal before a "night" of sailing.
This magnificent fjord can only be accessed through a 100 meter opening cut through a cliff. The story goes that a battle was fought here back in 1890 by fisherman for access to the fjord. This is an amazing place to stop for the night, tell stories, and then continue sailing along.
This fishing village deemed the "Venice of the North" is home to some great pizzerias that we will visit for a great meal on land. It consists of a group of islands all connected by bridges and has one of the most famous football fields in the arctic.
Next we will stop by one of the most beautiful villages in Norway, known for its unbelievable mountains and fjords. A hike to the top of Reinebringen will reveal incredible views of the village and the surrounding peaks.
Lastly, we will check out one more important fishing port with much to enjoy including bars, cafes, restaurants and great museums. Do an evening hike to the local mountain called "The Goat" for an incredible view.
