Whale and northern light expedition

Magic northern lights. Humpbacks and killer whales. Eagles gliding over you head. Winter in Northern Norway is spectacular in every sense of the word. And we want to show it to you in a state of the art expedition yacht that even has a wood fired sauna.

Whale watching from Tromsø
Magic light in the darkest month in Northern Norway.

Our 47 feet expedition sailing yacht will be available for explorers, photographers, scientist and all others who want an experience out of the ordinary from mid-November 2019. The boat can run expeditions from Bodø, Harstad and Tromsø as starting harbour. We are adaptable, and we must be as the weather changes quick in the wintertime.

The boat is very comfortable and sleeps six guests in three double cabins. It has central heating, inside steering position and salon, generator, solid and fast dinghy, and a well equipped galley where we make first class meals based on local traditions and ingredients.

Gazellen is a very comfortable and seaworthy ship.

On our expeditions we will «hunt» for the Northern Light, the big pod of whales that comes to feed on the herring in the wintertime, and eagles. We tailor every expedition to our guests wishes.
