Sailing trip with nature tour guide
The Lofoten Islands are often praised as the most beautiful islands in the world, and the diversity of this region is simply breathtaking. For nature lovers, the rugged landscape is a true paradise. On board our expedition ship, the Antigua, you have the unique opportunity to traverse this impressive panorama and reach places that normally remain hidden from the eyes of tourists. During your journey, you will be accompanied by an experienced guide who knows the region inside out and will provide you with a wealth of information about the area and its fascinating history.
In winter, this already impressive area takes on an extra dimension – the Northern Lights, one of the most extraordinary natural phenomena on earth. Aurora Borealis, as the Northern Lights are also known, are truly unique and fascinating with their green, purple and blue colours. With the Antigua, we specifically look for places and harbours that are free from light pollution in order to offer you the best possible view of the Northern Lights in their full splendour.
Another spectacular event in the Norwegian winter is the numerous whale watching trips. Nowhere else in the world can you see such large schools of whales as in northern Norway. Here, these majestic animals search for food and hunt in the magnificent Norwegian fjords. With the Antigua, we will navigate to places where we can admire the world’s largest mammals in a respectful and unique way.
The magic of the Northern Lights and the majestic whales are at the centre of this winter voyage. Small adjustments can be made to the programme to find the best places to observe these natural beauties. In combination with the unspoilt natural area in the Arctic Ocean, this trip will be an unforgettable experience that you will remember forever.
Note: Wind and weather can significantly affect the trip. If necessary due to unforeseen circumstances, changes may be made to the route.
- Do not travel with a hard suitcase; it’s better to use a good travel bag.
- A passport if required for the planned trip; otherwise, an identity card is sufficient (inform yourself in advance).
- A coffee-to-go mug (not mandatory) or a water bottle for refilling.
- While oilskins are not necessary, a good rainproof jacket, rain trousers, and sturdy shoes are always recommended, be it for hiking, cycling, or helping on deck.
- Don’t forget sunglasses, a sun hat or cap, and sun cream; even when the sun is not visible, you can get quite burnt.
- A good book for some solitude or a good parlour game to play with your fellow sailors.
- A camera to capture your memories and share them with those at home.
- Cash because you can only pay your drinks bill in cash here. Also, consider the currency of the country you are traveling to so you can buy a souvenir.
- A board game to play with fellow travelers.
- A good mood! You certainly shouldn’t forget it!
Tips: Good to know: Would you like to travel alone and not share a cabin? Then you can book a single traveler supplement, which corresponds to the normal travel price + 50%.
TIP: This is a crossing, which means that we have to bring the boat back to another starting point. If the wind is not in our favor, we will use the engine. If you prefer a sailing trip where you are guided more by the wind, you can find a more suitable trip in our travel program.

On board the Antigua you are on a very special expedition ship. The three master has a specious center deck which enables you as guest to view the vast wilderness and animals of northernmost regions of Europe. The characteristic sailing ship counts three zodiacs used for excursions.
You’re immediately at home in the comfortable and cosy salon of the ship, a perfect spot to wind down from a day at sea. As in the salon, the standard cabins are mahogany finished. For those who prefer slightly more comfort there are a few larger cabins with loose beds. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms with showers and toilets.
With the Barkentine Antigua you will reach regions where other ships won’t be able to sail. It’s for that reason that guests prefer to embark on our unique expeditions in arctic waters.
