The Norwegian government has now started easing up on some of the preventive actions on the corona pandemic. As it seems for the moment, it is likely that Norway will slowly reopen in the time to come. Our sailing courses and trips for June and July are therefore now available for booking. However, Seil Senja is monitoring the situation closely and will take any new changes from the authorities into consideration. For now, we have removed the deposit requirement when booking. You only have to pay by attendance. In addition, as an extra service for you, cancellation can be made up to 7 days before attendance (normally 14 days). This means you can start right ahead planning your participation in sailing activities.
On these trips, we will follow the impressive mountain range along Senja´s west side. Then we will cross the Andenes fjord and steer south-west towards Andenes.
Here in the open sea, the adventure-minded get to experience the contrasts of feeling small in mighty surroundings. We could even be honoured with a visit from the whales in the open ocean.
Andenes is known for its flat landscape, and the view of the lighthouse rising out of the sea as we get closer to shore can only be described as magical.
With your feet back on solid ground in Andenes you get to explore the small island community and get an up close understanding of Norwegian cultural heritage.
Here there are loads of fish, and the local fishing community has been an important industry since the middle ages.
You can enjoy a stroll to Andenes lighthouse which will offer you a panoramic view of the island, or learn about the kingdom of the whales and life beneath the sea floor at the whale museum.
From Andenes you get the option to leave the boat and continue your eco friendly journey to Lofoten or Vesterålen by bus, or return to Senja with the ferry to Gryllefjord.
