Svartisen is Norway’s second largest glacier, and the lowest glacier in mainland Europe. This makes it easy accessible for hikes. The ship will make a stop to allow you to transfer to another smaller boat. Enjoy sailing between islets and skerries whilst the guide tells you all about the area and the scenery, an impressive view best enjoyed out on deck. Don’t forget your camera, you are now in the realm of the sea eagle. Arriving at the Svartisen Tourist Centre, you can admire the beauty of this enigmatic ice world while enjoying a warm drink and the centre’s varied buffet of delicious cakes. Afterwards, you continue your journey along the beautiful coast of Helgeland back to Bodø where you rejoin the ship.
