Introduction:

This short voyage has been desigend to bring out the adventurous side of of our guests.
It involves spending a week on a 100 year old two masted schooner sailing through the fjiords of Northern Norway inside the Arctic Circle.

The aim of the voyage is to try and find the Orcas (Killer Whales) and Humpbacks which collect in these areas following the huge shoals of Herring at this time of year.

During daylight hours we expect to see White-tailed Sea Eagles and other species of seabirds and we will have the opportunity for much beautiful scenery photography. After dark we hope for clear skies and the for the Northern Lights to appear.
Being anchored up next to a jetty of a small fishing village will give us plenty of great opportunities for photographing the lights with interesting village backgrounds.

We will do some hikes too and snowshoes are provided should we need them.

Depending on which dates we travel we will leave from either Tromso or Harstad.
The map below shows a typical but not hard and fast travel plan, as much will depend on weather and ice conditions
The captain will make the travel decisions at the time, bearing in mind that the climate is polar.
