This is the trip for those who want to learn how to take awesome pictures during the rawest time of the year in north-Norway. It is for those who want to sail, or learn to sail, while most others sit inside around the fireplace. This is the trip for those who want to experience north-Norway in really special winter light.

We hoist sail in Bodø and spend one week northwards to Tromsø. We'll explore Steigen, Lofoten, Andøya and Senja.

Underway we will search for wildlife, orcas, whales and northern light, and learn more about sailing and photography.

Onboard on this trip we have with us adventure photographer Mats Grimsæth! He'll share his knowledge and experience about photography.

On this trip you do not need previous training or skills with photography, and if you do not want to take pictures, and just want to join an unforgettable winter-sailing adventure, you are also welcome onboard!

Trip level

This is a trip for all those who are interested in photography, or nature. Or both! Sailing-wise the trip is not very difficult, but you have to be prepared for both beautiful, and harsh conditions. If you're a rookie, we wish to make you a sailor as soon as possible, and if you're experienced, you'll be given responsibility and experience greater challenges. This is a photo-trip, and we'll be spending a lot of time behind the camera. You don't have to have special knowledge with photography, we'll adjust the level accordingly to the participants, and you'll quickly be given new tasks and learn plenty underway.

We recommend all our customers to travel as environmentally friendly as possible. Travelling by train, or driving together is the best option. Traveling slowly also adds a whole other dimension to your vacation, rather than just flying above all the beautiful places our country has to offer.

Changes in the program
The program should be seen as a plan, and will be adjusted to according weather and conditions.
