Voyage Description:

Summer Sailing Expedition in Northern Norway

Classic Sailing has offered voyages exploring the Western Fjords before, but this is the first time we have been able to offer a voyage in the far North. After a full summer exploring Iceland, Jan Mayen, and Spitsbergen, three masted schooner Blue Clipper finishes her Arctic oydessey with an unusual opportunity to explore the Northern part of Norway. Starting from the majestic Lofoten Islands which stretch outwards from the mainland Blue Clipper will then hop down the Norwegian mainland coast past many a Viking stronghold and hundreds of miles of wilderness.

The Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands dip their toe in the turbulent waters of the Norwegian Sea, far above the Arctic Circle, but once between the high mountain spires you can enjoy sheltered waters and white sand beaches. This rare wilderness outpost offers an untrammelled landscape of majestic mountains, deep fjords, squawking seabird colonies and great surfing beaches if you like cold water surfing in an unusual setting.  If you are seeking unforgettable nature experiences, Lofoten will definitely not let you down.  

In January 2017, Fstoppers.com, the major website for photography enthusiasts announced the Lofoten Islands as one of the best travel destinations for photographers.

Myriad of islands and small fjords

Blue Clipper has nearly three weeks to explore ths intricate coastline.  Possible destinations range from major cities with long waterfronts and medieval streets like Trondheim, to tiny fishing villages and sparsely populated islands.  There is plenty of true wilderness with spruce forests, lakes and waterfalls.  The fjords might not cut so far into the interior as further South, but there are plenty of jaw dropping anchorages to discover.  

Alesund for Art Deco Architecture

The town is tightly packed on a fish hook shaped peninsula. Alesund is far less touristy than Bergen, and has amazing art nouveau style architecture with buildings adorned with turrets, spires and gargoyles throughout the town.  There is an international airport serving Alesund (airport is called Vigra and airport code is AES)
