with SV Antigua October 29–November 05, 2017

The last voya­ge of this arc­tic sea­son took us from Trom­sø along the Nor­we­gi­an coast and various near­by islands to Bodø. A week full of orcas and nort­hern lights. That is what ever­y­bo­dy had been hoping for. Well, it may be a mista­ke to know in advan­ce what a trip has to deli­ver, espe­cial­ly if it is up to mother natu­re in the end. You can not pre-order orcas and nort­hern lights.

„We don’t take a jour­ney, a jour­ney takes us“, as peop­le who know about tra­vel­ling say. You have to have open eyes for wha­te­ver you encoun­ter. And tho­se who had open eyes (all of us, I would say) got a lot to see and to enjoy. We did many miles of gre­at sai­ling, under the low nort­hern sun and through snow sho­wers, we saw sea eagles, many stun­nin­gly beau­ti­ful straits and sounds, some ama­zing islands, litt­le vil­la­ges, big (well, rela­tively) towns and inte­res­ting muse­ums. We had the oppor­tu­ni­ty for the occa­sio­nal nice walk or litt­le hike. We had a nice and inte­res­ting bunch of peop­le on the ship, both crew and pas­sen­gers, and we the chan­ce to meet some locals. The­re was a lot! Yes, the­re was also a nort­hern light or even two. Not­hing spec­ta­cu­lar at all, but at least, the­re was some­thing to see on the polar night sky, some­ti­mes.

Have a look and enjoy the pho­tos. I don’t want to miss the­se impres­si­ons!
