North Norway with SV Antigua: Tromsø-Lofoten-Bodø

27 October-03 November, 2019

North Norway in late October and early November – that should be a voyage into the light, into darkness and into the winter. We got all of that: beautiful northern lights – the first evening was great! – sunrises, sunsets, some more or less bright hours in-between and a lot of darkness around those, on the edge of the polar night. And plenty of snow and winter atmosphere.

It didn’t really work well with the Orcas, there was just too much wind that day in that area to look for or to even find whales. And, yes, on a more peronal account, I could have done without a bad cold … but hey, that’s life, and other than that I think we had a great time, didn’t we? Thank you to all of you who have been there, contributing to good spirits even when it was a bit more grey outside than we would possibly have liked. But then, the good moments came again, well deserved 🙂

I want to thank Sarah Gerats who kindly gave her permission to use some of her photos in the photo galleries on these pages. These are mostly from the tours where we went on walks and hikes in different directions. Sarah’s photos are marked with her name in the image.
