From Norway to Iceland. Sailing from northern Norway to Iceland you will cover about 800 nautical miles. This is an adventure for those who love sailing, but also for avid hikers! You will start by taking in the famous fjords before setting course for Iceland. You can expect about a week of relaxing sailing, hopefully accompanied by whales! After reaching your country of destination you can count on exploring the northern coast, visitng picturesque anchorages and small harbours and discovering the famous local nature. Open for all windseekers, minimum age 15 years. You will reach Akureyri on the evening of 22nd or morning of the 23rd. It is best to book your flight for later in the day, or book yourself a hotel and spend a couple more days exploring on your own!

Ports

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.

Akureyri is a small city in northern Iceland. It is an important port and fishing centre. The Norse Viking Helgi Magri (the slim) Eyvindarson originally settled the area in the 9th century. The city is surrounded by mountains, the highest being Kista (1447 m) and another peak of 1538 m at the head of Glerádalur. Go hiking for a day over the mountains or along the water. Enjoy the quiteness here and the great views with snowy hilltops. Nature is beautiful here and offers great photo material.
