Celebrate Midsummers day sailing in the Lofoten Islands

a fantastic anchorage in haversandTheres nothing quite  like sitting indoors on a wet and windy day to get you thinking about the summer and summer holidays.  This summer we will be sailing up in the Lofoten Islands of Norway enjoying 24 hour daylight surrounded by spectacular scenery.

We get there in June, and will be joining with the locals later in the month to celebrate midsummers day.  The Norwegians celebrate by burning bonfires on the beaches, we will settle for a BBQ on the back of the boat in a peaceful anchorage – our favourite is pictured above.

We are running trips in June, July and August – and although most of them are filling up now there are still a few spaces in the early ones.   Our base in Bodo is easy to get to.  Fly from your local airport to Oslo and then take an internal flight to Bodo, there are about 5 a day.   As of today, flights are approximately £250 return from London Gatwick with SAS or Norwegian Air, also available from other UK airports.

We spend the days sailing and the evenings exploring ashore – plenty of time as it never goes dark.  We expect to see lots of wildlife too.  Last year we saw numerous types of birds, huge eagles, pods of pilot whales, dolphins, and even some Killer Whales.

One thought on “Celebrate Midsummers day sailing in the Lofoten Islands”

  1. I wish we were going back – our trip last year was amazing. We had a brilliant time, and the trip was a great introduction to sailing, made even better by great food, wonderful hosts and fantastic scenery! It also allowed me to fulfil my dream of seeing the midnight sun! Have fun this year!
