Join this trip to experience racing a tall ship in full sail and the uniqueness of life at sea. We might stop by the beautiful island Lovund. Lovund is located on the outskirts of the Helgeland coast,  and along the charming Kystriksveien.

Be charmed by the coastal town of Brønnøysund and the spectacular Helgeland coastline. Arrive a day early to explore the “adventure capital of the fjords” Ålesund.

INCLUDED
Meals
NOT INCLUDED  Flights and transfers from and to the ship, drinks on board (available for local prices onboard), field trips, other personal expenses.

This stage takes you from Ålesund, northward to Brønnøysund, a town situated roughly half-way along Norway’s vast coastline, which is longer than the equator itself.

We sail northward towards the spectacular coast of Helgeland with its network of archipelagos consisting of more than 12,000 islands, rich birdlife and the legendary Seven Sisters mountain range.

And why not arrive a day before departure to explore Ålesund. This coastal pearl located on a cluster of islands is famed for its Art Nouveau architecture resplendent with turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation. It is also an excellent starting point for excursions to popular destinations such as the dramatic Hjørundfjord.

Optional activities

  • Explore Ålesund
  • Visit Torghatten
  • Visit the Vega Archipelago World Heritage Site
  • Explore Brønnøysund

At sea, you can settle into the unique rhythm of life at sea with your co-sailor colleagues, before enjoying the unforgettable experience of tall ships in full sail competing in a short regatta.

 

We might stop at the beautiful island Lovund. The island is located west of the Svolvær islands, and the southeast of Træna islands.
