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!
