Torget & Rørvik

1 August 2019

The wind does not want to cooperate with us this trip. We either have wind from the wrong direction or no wind at all. The long stretch we wanted to make did not work out the way we planned. In the afternoon the wind died out and the swell increased. We decided to leave the open water and go ‘inside’. We made a stop in Rørvik to spend the night and visit the museum in the morning. We also met Olaf Nooitgedacht, he came by the ship to have a look on board. He gave us a bunch of tips for the rest of our trip and we always like inside information: thank you Olaf!

We continued our way and sailed between all the island, it’s such a beautiful country! We dropped anchor in an idyllic bay, and we brought the guests to shore for an evening stroll. They met a friendly man who opened the house of his grandparents for everyone to see, thank you Bjorne!

After breakfast we left for a new day of amazing views. We first sailed to Torget, a mountain with a hole in it. Cruise ships go out of their way to see this, so we did too. Then we sailed on to a beautiful passage at Bjørntuva. Not much later we spotted a couple of dolphins, but they were on their way to somewhere else as they disappeared quickly. And before we arrived in Nesna for the night we spotted the ‘Seven Sisters’. A mountain range with seven peaks.

Today the Arctic Circle is on the program. Let’s hope Poseidon is in a good mood and grants us passage.
