Longyearbyen (NO) - Tromsö (NO)
04 July - 11 July 2017
7 days, Anne-Margaretha
Book this journey
Longyearbyen is a capital of Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, located on the Spitsbergen island. If you want to experience the arctic climate, although tempered by a warm current, Spitsbergen is the place to visit. Look for seabirds, reindeer and marine mammals but watch out for polar bears! Don't be fooled by the town's remote location and small size: you can find there two museums, art galleries and a cinema.
Only 2000 km from the North Pole Tromsö is the capital of Norway’s high north, home to 70 000 inhabitants who live on the edge of the Arctic. This well operated cruise destination is positioned in a spectacular setting between islands, iconic fjords and mountain peaks, midway between the North Cape and Lofoten Islands.

"I have met new people, been up in the mast, seen indescribable sunsets and laughed a lot. Learning how to sail a ship has been the coolest thing I have done so far and I have confidence in what I do now"
"IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."
"The nicest moment WAS ARRIVING TO CADIZ, WHEN WE SAT ON THE MAST WITH THE ENTIRE TEAM, WEARING OUR TEAM SHIRTS AND SINGING LOUDLY TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WE'RE COMING."
