Day 1: Embarkation and exploration of Tromsø
We start embarking at 4 pm. We visit the city and admire the Norwegian architecture. Those who want to, reach a viewpoint on Fløya mountaing by cable car or on foot, visit the Arctic Cathedral, Polaria museum. At midnight, we set sail towards the Lofoten.
We move along beautiful fjords, stopping from time to time for fishing, and head towards the breathtaking Trollfjorden – a narrow, deep fjord, surrounded by soaring snow-capped rocks, from which numerous waterfalls spew. We go ona short mountain trip in the direction of Blafjellet, and when we come back we make a grill as a reward for our effort. We spend the night in an unforgettable scenery.
We get to the Lofoten in the morning. We stop in the town of Sorwågen, where we admire red houses on stilts. We go on trekking to a village 2 km away from Sorwågen, of the shortest name of Å. We witness there the process of drying cods, visit the Museum of Stockfish and obligatorily take a photo with the village plate. Next we sail to Reine which is thought to be the symbol of the Lofoten. The ones who want to go on an evening climbing trip to the peak of Reinebringen with a fantastic panorama of the vicinity.
We set sail to the north-east and go to Nusfjord, one of the smallest charming fishing villages, the whole being under UNESCO patronage due to its location and traditional architecture. Next we go to Henningsvær – a picturesque town on islands, cut with canals, which reminds us of Venice. Later we sail to Svolvær, where we stay overnight.
Until noon we spend our time in Svolvær, “the capital” of the Lofoten. The ones interested visit the extraordinary War Museum with its unique exhibits from World War II, north-Norwegian centre of art or unusual Magic Ice – a gallery of ice sculptures. We admire the characteristic peak of Svolværgeita with two “goat” horns.
We set off east. With a bit of luck we watch killer whales on the way. After a few hours we get to Lødingen, the gateway to the Lofoten. Next we sail to Harstad, the third biggest city of northern Norway, located really beautifully. After a week in nature and wildlife, for a change we’ve got a chance to taste “civilisation” and go to a vibrant club.
We set off on a long journey to Finnsness, which is 40 Nm away, admiring Norwegian landscapes and fishing on the way.
We spend the night in a charming marina next to a gigantic bridge Gisund, joining the town with the island of Senja, called the Fairytale Island or Norway in Miniature.
We cover the last 40 Nm to Tromsø, admiring the nature and sailing together for the last time. We visit Tromsø, called the gateway to the Arctic, which is the biggest city of arctic Scandinavia. This is the time to say goodbye, exchange photographs and our impressions.
Day 11: Tromsø
