Wild, Beautiful & Raw

Access the world’s wildest nature by sailboat

Summer is our busiest time with week-long trips up the majestic Helgeland coast, through the magnificent Lofoten islands, and to the vibrant Tromsø, with multiple boats in a fleet. This isn’t just a vacation; it’s an adventure where we sail north under the magical midnight sun. We participate in regattas, climb mountains, experience lively festivals, immerse ourselves in local culture, and savour culinary delights along the way.

On all our summer trips, you’ll learn the art of sailing, and you don’t need any prior knowledge to join.

SeilNorge took us to completely unique places out among the islands along the coast of Helgeland, and along the way we were true crew members in making ourselves a memory for life. Thank You!

Summer activities in the north

It’s not just about sailing. In addition to mastering the art of sailing, you’ll experience a week filled with swimming in crystal-clear waters, fishing in rich fishing grounds, birdwatching along dramatic coastlines, hiking with breathtaking views, kayaking through spectacular fjords, and cooking with local ingredients.

We sleep out on the open sea while the midnight sun shines. And with the sun that never sets, many of our guests simply can’t go to bed!

Welcome aboard an adventure with us this summer!

What is the summer temperature in Northern Norway?

On our summer trips, we’ve experienced everything from 33 degrees Celsius and perfect beach weather to 10-12 degrees Celsius with rain coming in sideways. You need to be prepared for the contrasts. Most of the time, we get a little bit of everything.
