Ship location in Bodø

Experience the beautiful, Artic district of Lofoten on the sailing ship Christian Radich. Each voyage will start and end in Bodø, but where we go and what we see will be different on every voyage. The captain will decide where to go when he sees the weather forecast and the directions of the wind. In this way we will get the best out of each voyage. Lofoten has so much to offer, and the distances are quite short.  Here are examples of places we might visit and things we might explore: The spectacular Trollfjord with its narrow inlet and steep mountain where you often can spot eagles. Nusfjord is a small and exotic fishing-village and so is Reine. From Reine there is a path to the top of Reinebringen, from here you have a fantastic view. The winds might be good for sailing on the north coast of Lofoten and if the weather permits, we have also sailed out to Værøy, where we swam in clear blue and ice-cold water! What your voyage will be like is decided by the weather and winds.

 

A good thing with not having a fixed route is that we have time to the unexpected, maybe we will spot killer whales, as we did last year, and fortunately we had good time to get quite close. We often have time to do fishing, the captain knows the best places and trainees has caught some real big fishes in the Moskenstraumen. Everywhere we sail and where we make stops in Lofoten, you will be overwhelmed by its rugged nature and steep mountains, the beautiful beaches, and the picturesque villages.
