It Never Gets Dark at 68° NORTH!! – SAILING NORWAY (MJ Sailing – Ep 127 Part 1)

Sadly, it’s time to leave Lofoten, but our exciting journey is nowhere near finished. And as we make the overnight sail to Bodo, we also discover that although the sun may have set on us for a few hours, it never gets dark up here.

Leaving at 10 pm, we still have the sun shining on us as we begin to leave these ragged hills in the distance, and even when I come on shift at midnight, the sky is lit up in oranges and pinks. We had great winds to carry us 90% of the way to Bodø, but upon entering the channel we were met with glass calm conditions.

We just have to hope the nice weather continues during our stay as we make a visit to the Saltstraumen.

Cheers from Norway!

ON TOP OF THE WORLD at Reinebringen Lofoten (MJ Sailing – Ep 126)

If there were ever the most idyllic and picture perfect spot on earth, this would be it!

This is by far one of the most beautiful spots we’ve ever traveled and it felt like the scenery around us MUST be painted in because there is no way it could be real.

We take three separate hikes within the Lofotens, one at the very famous Reinebringen, where we climbed over 1,500 steps to get to the top. 24 hour later we were in a much quieter spot all to ourselves and decided Georgie needed to go ashore to do a little exploring.

We’d been spending almost every day so far in Norway on the go in one way or another, but there’s just too much beauty around to stay put in one place for too long.

Much love from Norway!!

LOFOTEN NORWAY – Let’s See HOW HIGH We Can Get!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 125 Part 1)

After having just landed in the Arctic, we woke up on our first day in Værøy, ready to climb some mountains…except our clear skies disappeared on us. Thick fog had rolled into the harbour, and even though sea level was still clear, we knew we would not get our view from the top.

Not to let that discourage us, we still took the dinghy to shore where we rowed through massive amounts of kelp to land the boat. Walking through the former town of Måstad and learned of its history in fishing and puffin hunting.

We did eventually find the trail to make our ascent up the incredibly steep hill, but just as we expected, we began to lose visibility only a few hundred feet up. It was still a fun experience though and got us ready to head to our next destination for the afternoon…a white sand beach with a mysterious cave!

Much love from Norway!!
