Norway Coastal Voyages, Norway Travel,
Have you thought about a exploring the Norwegian coast? Do you love old boats? We are very excited about the MS Gamle Salten, recently restored back to it’s former glory and now sailing around the Lofoten Islands of Norway. This is a glorious region of Norway, with huge mountain ranges, clear water, long summer nights and picturesque fishing villages scattered through out the islands.
This post-war Hurtigruten boat has been lovingly restored, with the old world materials being used to create an intimate stylish interior. There are 36 cabins on board and a great covered deck for dining. The boat has principally been sold to Norwegian travellers since re-launching so it is great for local interaction.
Remembering that during the summer period, you will be enjoying Midnight sun in this region, your voyages will be full of experiences and photo opportunities. Sunsets on the deck at midnight are unforgettable.
There are a mix of different voyages you can enjoy, some which fit around the hectic Summer tourist season of Lofoten Islands. You can do a voyage, which coincides with the Opera weekend or the Cod Fishing Festival of Lofoten. You could also do a cycling trip which travels along the coast allowing time for you to cycle amongst the islands and glorious little fishing villages. You can also do the Classic tours which we have on our website – the Helgeland Heritage Coastal Voyage or the Lofoten and Hamaroy Heritage Voyage.
