2019 Destinations

Our travels in: 2018 |2017 | 2016

For 2019 we will be in Arctic Norway skiing in the Lyngen Alps near Tromso in April, then sailing north from Tromso across the Barents Sea to Svalbard in July and August. We plan to sail the spectacular west coast of Svalbard avoiding the ice caps and spotting polar bears , walruses and abundant wildlife with exploration ashore.

Our 2019 week-by-week programme is set out lower down this page, with a summary on the Schedule & Prices page.

Thanks to the gulf stream sailing to Svalbard is largely ice free, however weather can change quickly so be prepared with plenty of layers to cope with a wide spectrum of temperatures from sub zero to plus 10degrees degrade.

We have gained knowledge of sailing in Norway from our Norwegian exploits in 2017 and 2018 and Baltic Sea voyages in 2016. We love the remote anchorages and complex navigation through skerries and juggling the weather and winds deep in the fjords.

If you have a week in mind or want to chat about the options do call or e-mail us. Flights are reasonably priced especially if booked well in advance so early booking is recommended.

We endeavour to follow the outline itineary each week, but this may be subject to change due to weather or other safety considerations which we share with all on board but ultimately as skippers we make the 'final call'.  

View an overview of our 2018 sailing in Norway, 2017 sailing in Norway and our 2016 sailing in the Baltic Sea. We also carry guest reviews and pictures of our recent adventures on our facebook site.
