Route suggestion with snow/weather precautions:

Day 1: We will get settled in the cabins, have a quick snack and get to know each other and the boat. After a safety-brief we will set sails and go to our first destination.
We will spend some time in our first harbour, planning the first ski-tour with our guide from Arctic sea to Summits, while having dinner on board.

Day 2: Grytøya has multiple choices for you when it comes to skiing, and your first trip could be either Galten(782 m), Trolltinden(919 m) or Nona(1012). Each mountain with different levels of difficulty. The ski-guide will help you decide, regarding to your experience and the snow- contitions.

Day 3: Wake up, have breakfast and plan your day with our guide. The possibilities are multiple also on this side of the island, where we can bring you to the places where you can set your own, fresh tracks in untouched snow. Raging just over the beaches, we can find Lilletussen(796), stortussen(941), Hattfjellet(856) and toppen(759).

Day 4: Tjeldsundet. The gateway to Lofoten! Plan the next adventure with our guide, and get off the boat to make new tracks in freshly made snow on either Sætertinden (1095m) or Kongsviktinden (977m).

Day 5: The Mountain “Rolla” is waiting for you here in this beautiful island with the same name.
A trip to the top of Rolla is an easy and straightforward trip and can be completed without problems for most people. In addition, the view from the top of this relatively low, but the mountain is very good.

Day 6: Andørja has the European record in summits and hills per square kilometres, with its 11 mountain tops to choose between. One of them, Langlitinden (1276m) is scandinavias highest island-mountain, lying next to Kråkrøtinden (1187m) with it´s epic ocean-views. Both of them very popular skiing-destinations.

Day 7: The last day on board. You can choose if you want to relax on the boat or take a stroll in Harstad city center.
Harstad is a cozy small town with multiple shops, cafés and restaurants with local food.

Our best trips.

After many great adventures in the southern latitudes, we have finally found peace here in the north and realized we live in the middle of the world's most beautiful archipelago. Here we want to be able to continue sailing, as well as create an offer for both locals and visitors who want to experience the northern pearls of northern Norway.

Combine the sailing trip with a mountain hike, paddling or just pure recreation in our beautiful archipelago - this is where you will find the real and undisturbed surroundings!

Fantastic experience

My wife and I were on a sailing course with Seil Bifrost last weekend. This was a course that was both inspiring and that gave more taste for sailing. The course itself was set up in a good way with briefing / theory before we started sailing. Skipper Halvard has a calm and educational way of guiding us around, and he was good at taking the scary thing out of sailing a boat like Bifrost. We sailed in the local area around Harstad, and it is fantastic to see how nice an archipelago we have here in the area. The actual booking process and communication prior to the course went terrific. This was a fantastic weekend for both of us who have definitely kickstarted the dream of getting our own sailboat.

so much more than we could ever have wished for!

"This was such an amazing adventure. This trip was so much more than we could ever have wished for! I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the landscape and the hospitality of our hosts Halvard and Ann Helen. We sailed between the islands surrounded by the white mountainpeaks And to make it all compleet, We got to see the magical northern lights! And we were very happy with the comfort of our accommodation! I would love to go back again. Thank you very much!"

-Maurice Dun,28, Nederland. Båt og skipper, dagstur februar 2020.

Strongly reccomended.

Fantastic trip with Bifrost. The boat is easy to learn and nice to handle, well equipped and very comfortable for our 2 families (8 pers). Very nice and serious landlords who ensured good standards and hygiene - as well as a thorough review (safety first) before departure. Highly recommended.

Thumbs up!

We were 4 couples who rented Bifrost from Halvard and Ann-Helen for a 10-day sailing trip around Lofoten. The trip and the nature were exceptional and the boat was a dream to both sail and live in. The boat is well equipped with all safety equipment, good sails and a lot of useful equipment. Everything you need for a good experience is taken care of.
We want to praise Ann-Helen for good communication and organization ahead of the trip. Halvard sailed the boat into Harstad for us and had a thorough review of the boat and the technical, gave us some tips and hints and was on the whole very welcoming. This is a helproft and serious couple that we are more than happy to rent a boat from again.

Thumbs up from us.

Dream weekend for the whole family

Weekend trip with the family under the auspices of Bifrost and Arctic sea to summit can really be recommended.
Bifrost is an excellent base for dealing with everything the archipelago outside Harstad has to offer.
Skipper Hallvards quickly made sure to get everyone involved in setting the mainsail and maneuvering the boat.
Good local knowledge ensured that we ended up in the best places, both for day activities and to find peace for the night.
Bifrost is well equipped with everything you need for both food preparation and comfortable accommodation.
This combined with good weather, many organized activities under the auspices of activity guide Christian, made sure that this really became a dream weekend for the whole family.????
This can really be recommended for everyone else who wants an activity-filled weekend as well as an introduction to sailing life.
We will be happy to return!
