Board Swan in Bodø and sail direct to Lofoten for a week of exploring the magnificent archipelago. Anchor for a night at a beautiful sandy beach in the shelter of a dramatically steep mountain, or perhaps call in to Leknes or Svolvær to sample the local food and drink. There are so many exceptional sheltered harbours it will be hard to choose which one to drop the hook in.

The Swan will remain your home for the duration of your visit, and as a sail training vessel, everyone on board gets their sleeves rolled up to take care of sailing and domestic duties, from skipper to the least experienced. You will find you develop a real sense of ownership of the boat; your efforts making an appreciable difference to the vessel and your fellow crew members.

Disembark in Lofoten unless you have chosen to stay onboard for the next leg of Swan’s journey; the return ocean passage to Lerwick, Shetland.
