Welcome to one of our newest concepts: Vær (Weather) sailing. Here we sail from Vær to Vær, in all kinds of weather! A long weekend packed with experience and action. Where we will feel the power of nature and really appreciate the sailing abilities of our boat. Here, both new and experienced sailors will have a real challenge, while we measure our strength with the independent Vestfjorden. Are you keen on a new sailing challenge. To see an iconic part of Northern Norway in the "authentic" way (from the sea). Or has crossing the Vestfjord before sailing been on your bucket list for many years? Join us on a Vær-sailing across the Vestfjord!

We sail south from Bodø towards what is perhaps the most beautiful coastline in Norway: Helgeland. Between the thousands of inlets and islands, we will explore spectacular places that are only accessible by boat. The trip goes from Bodø to Sør-Fugløy, Rødøy, Myken, Støtt and back to Bodø. A stretch full of beautiful natural harbors, beaches, and scenic mountains and fjords. In addition to a proper sailing experience, on this trip you will also contribute to the well-being of the sea. Not only will you enjoy action-packed sailing, cozy meals, and the midnight sun, but you will also learn a lot about the sea, how it is threatened, and how you yourself can help solve these challenges.

On this trip you will learn much more than just how to sail! You will learn about marine litter from Nordic Ocean Watch and from us in SeilNorge, and along the way we might come in contact with other relevant organizations who also work to reduce the problem of marine litter and plastic waste in the sea. In addition to Nordic Ocean Watch and Hvitserk, we collaborate with organizations such as Keep Norway Clean, IRIS-, HAF- and SHMIL Waste Management on this trip.

According to the most serious predictions from the World Economic Forum, by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the sea. We are no exception here in cold, clear Northern Norway. As sailors and people who are passionate about the sea, we can not sit around and watch this happen: we must contribute to a cleaner sea. On this trip we will therefore take you to both exposed and untouched areas, all of which have beaches where there should be no plastic waste at all. Together we will clean up waste we find here, so that we can sail on leaving a cleaner coast in our wake. 


If you like the sea, northern Norwegian nature, are driven or curious about sailing, and want to spend your holiday doing something meaningful, then this trip is for you!

On this trip we will be 1-2 boats sailing together. Read more about our boats here.

As on all our trips you will to learn to sail, you will be challenged, and feel that you accomplish something. Last but not least, you will gain memorable experiences to last you a lifetime! If this is your first sailing trip ever, we will make you into a seaman/-woman as fast as we can, and if you’re an experienced seadog, you will be challenged and get more responsibilities. 

Of our planned activities you are free to choose what you want to participate in. If you rather want to take it easy one day, stay in the boat and write a poem, do yoga or do nothing at all, you are of course welcome to do that as well.


For inspiration, you can see some great movie clips from previous Sail TAVAHA trips on the link here and here.

A fun, inspiring and exciting way of exploring one of the most beautiful places of our planet - especially in that gorgeous weather we were treated with. Learned not only about sailing but about the way of life, history and culture of this pearl of northern Norway. As a cherry on top, we had an amazing group of people on board, including our fantastic skippers!
