Sail Charter

Sailing in northern Norway is like a fairytale.

This is one of the last remaining un-touched areas in the world. Rent one of our beautiful yachts and experience the authentic northern Norway by sail boat. Take in scenic view of steep mountains, long fjords, secret hideaways, small but modern towns and picturesque fishermen villages. Local people love the sea and are open minded and respect and appreciate other sea farers. You will always find guidance and help if you need and wish.

Mid May - Mid October
You can sail all year round in Norther Norway, but the rest of the year a Boreal Yachting skipper on board is mandatory.

Our boats are located right in the midle of it all; with one base in Tromsø, also known as "The Paris of the North" and one base in Svolvær, world famous Lofoten you are situated at the perfect starting point for exploring the Arctic.
License and experience
When hiring a Bare Boat, a responsible person on board must document knowledge and skills in seamanship and sailing. As a safety precaution, one other member of the crew must be able to manage the boat.

Skipper charter / instruction

Boreal Yachting can offer experienced skippers on trips for an active crew wanting to enjoy the Arctic Norway. Preferably at least one of the crew should be able to sail the vessel. For sailors wanting to get acquainted with Arctic Seas, it is possible to hire a INSTRUCTOR/GUIDE for a shorter period of time (one or more days) in order to become familiar with the boat and the local waters.
