Anne-Margaretha:
Bergen (NO) - Bodo (NO)

03 May - 14 May 2021

Follow the sun into the Arctic Circle. Sail with Anne-Margaretha on a journey north along the coast of Norway. Throw a fishing rod into the water and see if you can catch you some dinner! Admire thousands of seabirds, such as gannets, puffins and sea eagles while sailing near Rørvik nature reserve. Enter the Arctic Circle at 66˚30’NB and celebrate with a party on board! Because of the spectacular light this trip is especially nice for taking photographs. The journey ends on May 14th at 12:00 pm. We recommend that you book a flight home just at the end of that day as a precaution. Prices include €15 administration fee. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years (younger Windseekers on request, when accompanied by an adult).

Ports

Bergen is the gateway to the Fjords of Norway and a well-established cruise port. It’s an international city packed with history and tradition, a big city with small-town charm and atmosphere. Stroll around old streets and alleyways, and mingle with the crowds at the Fish Market. Saunter along the listed wooden buildings at Bryggen to the old fortress at Bergenhus, or call in at one of Bergen’s museums and galleries. The panoramic views of the city, the fjord and the ocean are breathtaking.

Bodo is a town in Norway, located north of the Arctic Circle. Bodo is home to the world’s strongest maelstrom. The city is perfect for outdoor activities like walking, kayaking, diving and fishing, but also for climbing and hiking in the mountain range. Besides of impressing nature, you find there lively urban scene with shopping centres and diverse choice of cultural activities.
