Destinations: North Norway

Ship: s/v Rembrandt van Rijn

North Norway - Showshoe(hike) - Aurora Borealis

This was truly an amazing adventurous trip with Oceanwide on the Rembrandt van Rijn. This classic three masted sailing ship was compact but comfortable with a very welcoming captain, crew, guides, and group on board. The scenery on this trip was truly breathtaking with snowshoe excursions an excellent opportunity to see the fjord country up close. The guides (Bergit Lutz and Beau Pruneau) were extremely knowledgeable, personable, and thoughtful. Bergit provided a great presentation on the arctic environment and restoration efforts. Some of the highlights of the trip were seeing the northern lights (4 nights), visiting the small villages, sitting out on the deck and enjoying the incredible views of the northern fjords, and putting up all the sails to ride the wind. I would highly recommend this trip, especially for someone with a more adventurous spirit.
