This stage takes you from Brønnøysund – half-way point along Norway’s vast coastline – and beyond the Arctic Circle to Bodø, gateway to the true north.

After departure, you can settle into the unique rhythm of life at sea with your co-sailor colleagues, before we drop anchor close to the glacial beauty of Svartisen. Norway’s second largest glacial mass has 60 “ice tongues” and covers 370 square kilometers.

Optional activities

  • Explore Brønnøysund
  • Visit Svartisen
  • Explore Bodø

You can explore Svartisen close-up by biking and hiking and even take a blue-ice trek on the glacier itself and through its mazes.

The voyage ends at the Arctic city of Bodø, gateway to Norway’s true north and home to the world’s strongest maelstrom Saltstraumen. A perfect jumping-off point for visiting the majestic Lofoten Islands, Bodø is also close to some of Norway’s most spectacular sights, such as the famous mountain of Torghatten with its central “peephole”.

And why not arrive a day before departure to explore Brønnøysund. This lively coastal town is steeped in history and surrounded by thousands of small islands. It is also an excellent starting point for excursions to popular destinations such as the dramatic Hjørundfjord.
