Description of Norway wildlife sailing holiday

Set sail on an active seven day sailing holiday from Lofoten to Tromsø, via Vesterålen and Senja, that will bring travellers ever closer to the incredible landscapes and wildlife on the north coast of Norway, as well as teaching them a few sailing tips along the way.

As we voyage through the mountainous Lofoten region we’ll be anchoring around the island of Hinnøya where bays filled with birdlife make for some incredibly memorable moments – don’t forget your binoculars.

Elsewhere on our Norway wildlife sailing holiday the Vesterålen archipelago, in Norland county, provides opportunities to explore on dry land with Møysalen, the islands’ highest mountain, offering great views as well as an excellent excuse to stretch our sea legs.

The island of Andøya, and its puffin-prolific surrounding islands, provides our next port of call before we take a stroll around the farming village of Bleik which has some exceptional coastal scenery highlighting the traditional farming techniques still practised in north Norway.

Continuing our Norway wildlife sailing holiday northwards we come across ideal territory for whale watching as we head towards the mountain peaks of Senja before anchoring at Hamn, within the Berg Fjord, for an evening that will nearly always include a hot tub and hot grub.

Arriving at Tromsø you’ll get to experience the thrills and colours of a sailing regatta as you look back fondly on your week of sailing in Norway with tales of kayaking, fish catching and wildlife watching adding to an enviable array of highlights to take home and treasure for years to come.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Norway wildlife sailing holiday


Our philosphy is simple; environmental awareness and respect for nature is something that grows when you get in close contact with the natural elements; and it is something that has to be rooted in real life experiences. It has to be understood and kept alive by becoming a part of our natural surroundings, by being in nature. We believe that real wild life experiences has a much greater effect on people’s awareness than tv-programs, movies, documentaries and the printed media.

We love the contrasts while underway. We say that it’s within the changes of perspective that the meaning lies. The changing perspectives; from that of the sailboat to a mountain peak, to that of the kayak-paddler or snorkeler. Not to mention the contrast between the trip itself and our participant’s everyday life.

It is our responsibility to develop inspiring and responsible programs and organize sustainable operations. We use the sailboat as the mean of transportation not only because it’s the most fun and engaging way to travel, but it is also in itself sustainable. Underway we have scarce resources of water, fuel, and food, and it takes knowledge, patience and hard work to sail with the wind. Hence we often say that sailing gives content and new meaning to the concept of sustainability. Sailing is really in itself excersising sustainability.


When we put together a program we pack it with our favourite destinations, restaurants, hikes and local activity-providers. We cooperate with the locals with their special knowledge about their places, their’ history, culture and knowledge about the activities that can be done in these areas. In this way we can provide exclusive and authentic experiences, and at the same time give something back to the places we visit.

The tourist-industry is growing and in an environmental perspectivet this industry generates a lot of harmfull greenhouse gas emissons. At the same time it represents many possible, positive effects for small communities, for cultural preservation and for public health through outdoor and wildlife experiences. The challenge is to offer this without causing increased emissions and natural stress.

We wish to show norwegians and foreigners the natural beauties of our northern coastline, and that our culture is just as exiting as those people fly far away to experience. Through the concept "Nature and Cultural- voyages" we use the norwegian coastline as an arena to show how economic growth is a threat against nature and cultures in different parts of the world, and how we have to think and act differently to achieve a sustainable future.
