“Sailing” Hotel / 1 night
Your Floating Hotel: Onboard our 72ft sailing vessel, Duen III, your comfort, safety and personalized experience is very important to us. The skipper and crew’s main priority, other than your safety is to get to know you, adjust the tour to your needs and help you get the most out of your time onboard.
3 Home-Cooked Meals
Food & Drinks: Gather around the the warm saloon for breakfast, lunch and dinner while sailing. Your crew will prepare classic Norwegian dishes, Pukka style. There is always fresh coffee, and tea on board along with snacks to keep you full. If the weather is good, you will even be able to catch, prepare and taste your very own catch.
Northern Lights Watching
Northern Lights: When sailing through the polar night, your crew will prepare a homemade Norwegian meal while waiting for the Northern Lights to dance in the sky above us. We will take you to secluded spots to watch the lights from the deck, or if the weather permits, from the warmth of the heated hot tub on the aft of the boat. The boat also offers 360 panoramic views from inside the warm, indoor saloon if you prefer.
Whale Safari: In the morning you will wake up to fresh coffee and a delicious breakfast spread while the crew will to our favorite whale watching spots! We are always looking forward to greeting the majestic whales who seek food in the fjords during the winter time. Humpback whales and Orcas come far into the fjords each year to hunt for herring. This is a very unique phenomenon to witness while sailing in a luxurious and safe atmosphere onboard a catamaran.
Fjord Cruising: Sail through the epic Arctic fjords while either being on deck, or watching from the heated saloon with a freshly brewed cup of coffee or tea in hand. There are few places in the world with such vibrant wildlife, and what better way to see it than a sailing ship.
