Nor­way SV Anti­gua 10/28-2018/11/04

The 2018 voya­ge with SV Anti­gua from Trom­sø to Bodø was again a lovely fina­le for a gre­at arc­tic sea­son 2018. In late Octo­ber and ear­ly Novem­ber, light and wea­ther are stam­ped by the arc­tic win­ter and polar night rather than the nort­hern sum­mer and mid­ni­ght sun (click here for some more infor­ma­ti­on about polar night and mid­ni­ght sun on this web­site). The­se qui­te spe­cial light con­di­ti­ons may bring a lot of beau­ty to a coun­try that is stun­nin­gly beau­ti­ful any­way, with count­less moun­tai­ne­ous islands, fjords and sounds.

Also this year, we were lucky to see some Orcas in the begin­ning, that’s some­thing that money just can’t buy – and the same is true for the famous nort­hern light. Initi­al­ly, we had some pro­blems to coor­di­na­te auroral acti­vi­ty and a clear sky, but later we got some beau­ti­ful dis­plays of the Auro­ra borea­lis in Lauk­vik (click here for more infor­ma­ti­on about nort­hern lights and nort­hern light pho­to­gra­phy on this web­site).

We visi­ted a lot of inte­res­ting pla­ces, we did and we saw a lot, espe­cial­ly con­si­de­ring that a week is not an awful lot of time and the fact that the days are not exact­ly get­ting lon­ger at this time of year … sun­set around 3 p.m.! So we real­ly had to use the day­light time avail­ab­le, and I think this is just what we did. Just have a look at my blog for some pho­tos and sto­ries. You can also visit some of the pla­ces in my 360 degree pan­ora­ma collec­tion, inclu­ding Skro­va (in sunshi­ne!) and Nusfjord (dito!).
