Sail into the arctic - Scotland to Norway

Sail into the arctic - Scotland to Norway


Crossing the arctic circle under sail. This is a real ‘must do’ experience for any adventurous sailor. Starting from the spectacular Orkney Islands, we will make the crossing to Norway. Pointing our bows north as the water becomes colder, the arctic sun extends the days and we become surrounded by arctic wildlife is an experience like no other. We will follow centuries of explorers before us we follow the “Way North” that Norway is named after soaking up the stunning fjordland scenery and passing into the arctic circle.
