In June 2022 we will start with a 3-days sailing course for (absolute) new beginners in northern Norway. In this course you learn the basics about manoeuvring and operating a sailing boat, play with the wind, get to know the basics of navigation and weather and enjoy the fjords of Norway. We will practise in the Steigen archipelagos which relocated 100 km north of the Arctic Circle. You sleep in tents on scenic places islands and inlets The costs are 600 Euro per person (including food and use of equipment). You can book this course with 2 or 3 persons. The course is available in June, July and August 2022. Contact us to schedule your course.
"When is the best time to pick berries in Norway", is a question that we often get. The answer is August and most of them are easy to find. Also the second half of July is a pretty good time but for some kinds it might be too early. The amounts are massive. So here is what you can find during one of our trips in northern Norway. Cloudberries (see picture), Arctic blueberries (one of the most common), loganberries, wild strawberries (small and sweet), raspberries, cranberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants. In Norway berries are also often eaten with traditional meat or fish dishes. Join us and let us hunt these small delicates.
Introduction dives! The mountains that shape the famous fjords often not emerge from sea-level. Underneath the surface the mountainous landscapes continues. For people that like to do the first dive of their lives, we organise introduction dives in northern Norway. After a short theoretical class we take you to the often crystal-clear under water world of Norway. Your first dive is not gonna be very deep and your instructor is taking care of you. On your first dive you will probably see all kinds of fish, colourful anemones, crabs, sea-urchins and shells. Is this a step to deep for you, then go snorkelling with us!
