For many years, killer whales and whales have been settling in the area of Skiervoy at the beginning of November & beginnig our Sails & Whales cruises. Their view is worth a week-long trip!
We will spend a few days in the Skiervoy area! We invite not only seasoned sailors for whale watching cruises – this is a trip for everyone- even peoples without any sailing experience can easily find their place here.
If we’re lucky, we’ll see the northern lights – we can also rent a car and go to places where we have a greater chance of seeing them.
Our home will be the s/y Pacific Star – well prepared for Arctic sailing.
Additional cost (paid onboard)
The map contains only one of the options for implementing the cruise plan. The actual route depends on the weather conditions prevailing in the water area at a given time. The amount of time spent at sea depends on the willingness of the entire crew to sail, and the captain is responsible for safety - therefore, he makes the final decision to choose the route. The actual weather forecast you'll check here.
At this time of year, we certainly won’t be climbing the highest peaks – snow will certainly cover the peaks, but we can present you a few hills with great views.
Usually, in November, pods of whales come to the Lyngen area. It’s worth being here at this time of year to take your own photo with your camera.
Try your hand at fishing, it’s a great place and time 😉
The aurora spectacles are best viewed from the sea (yacht) or from top of the hills – without additional light around us. What chance do we have to see it? Check yourself? Check Aurora Forecast in Tromso or general Northern Lights situation here!
The second interesting option is a trip to the mountains. However, if the weather is not good – we can rent a car/cars and go to the interior (sometimes we reached as far as Finland) to see the Aurora! It’s not a problem – it should be interesting and active!
