We accomplished our first goal of sailing from Florida to Norway and next it was time to check off our next goal of getting to the Arctic Circle. Listed as any latitude above 66°33′47.8″N, we knew we could have made it this far north without checking that off our bucket list.
Starting near Kristainsund, we have our first hike off the boat, traipsing through some wetlands, but getting spectacular views on the way. We’re treated to a great evening in the cockpit while Georgie burns off some of her energy and take in an 11 pm sunset.
While only planning to make a day trip north, we find the winds are supposed to be favorable and if we kept going, we’d get to the Lofoten islands in 48 hours. We are left awestruck as we pull into Værøy for the night…but ready to get out and explore the next day.
Cheers from Norway!!
