July 5-8

Sail with us Northward from Norway’s picturesque clipfish capital of Kristiansund and beyond the Arctic Circle to Bodø, gateway to the true north. If weather permits it, we will stop at Svartisen, the second largest glacier in Norway. After a short walk, we eat lunch close to the glacier. However, if the winds are with us, the Captain might decide that we will have a good sailing instead of a stop.
