Nautical adventure in the high north

A special holiday, two weeks of sailing and walking in a nature that you will only find in a few places in the world. Undamaged by the absence of many people. Living in and with this nature in one of the most beautiful areas in the world, the Norwegian coast.

Norway, the land of rugged coasts, islands, fjords, fishing ports and deserted places. A country that you can experience particularly well by ship. One of the few ships that sail there is the Meander, which manages to find the most beautiful places between Ergersund and Tromso, from the southern cape to far into the Arctic.

A combination of active sailing, idyllic mooring in quiet fjords, beautiful walks and discovering remote places. Good food in a good company surrounded by beautiful nature. Living the way life is meant to be. Once we are on the road one day you will find that you have forgotten the rest of the world and are only concerned with life on board.

Whale trips

Norway is one of the best places for whale watching. Along the coast live sperm whales, killer whales, humpbacks, whales and dolphins. In the north of Norway you have the best chance to see whales. In general, the Vesterålen archipelago is a perfect spot for whale watching. This is due to the continental shelf that is close by. This flat provides a large flow of food, so whales are more than happy to swim around here.

On our sailing trips from the Lofoten to Tromso or vice versa we pass the favorite spot of dozens of sperm whales.

General Information

  • As the trips take place on a sailing ship, the travel program is always partly dependent and subject to weather conditions.
  • On the day of arrival you are welcome on board from 18: 00 hours. On the day of departure everyone goes to 10: 00 hours to say goodbye again.
  • The crew likes it if you actively help with sailing, steering and navigation. You do not need any experience for this and if you want to know more about this, we will gladly teach you.
  • The trips mentioned are offered excluding transfer. The entry and exit points are chosen so that they are easy to reach. Public transportation in Norway is good. You generally travel independently to and from the arrival and departure ports. Of course we can always advise on the possibilities.
