The luxury yacht Santosa continues her adventures around Norway’s arctic landscape, giving couples a perfect sailing holiday while receiving all the benefits of being guest crew.

10th June 2019 – Chart Table seat, Nordskot.

Arrived by plane in Bodo yesterday. After a quick lunch on board we cast off into a light northerly, that gradually picked up, changed to an easterly then a westerly, then a south westerly then went from 15 knots to 30 in no time at all and saw us doing 9 knots plus under 2 reefs in the main and a well reefed headsail in a relatively flat sea.

Saw a convocation of white tailed sea eagles soaring off a step islet with patches of snow on top. Plenty of snow-capped mountains dotted along the horizon.


We are now in Nordskot, a pretty little village tucked into folds of the Norwegian Coastline, 35 nm north of Bodo. Surrounded by majestic, sharp mountain ridges there are lots of off lying islets and skerries.

Looks like there would be some good climbing/hiking to be had but our plan today is to continue heading north into the Lofoton Islands as we make our way to Andenes which is where the sperm whales hang out.
