North Sailing Norway

North Sailing Norway is a young company, established in Norway in 2016. We carry the traditions of North Sailing Húsavík, a dedicated family company with great respect for wildlife and nature.

We believe the tourism sector is key to contributing to a green shift in the economy. We see an increase in global tourism, and the only way to meet this growth is to develop sustainable alternatives and green destinations.

North Sailing Norway takes this responsibility seriously. One of our boats, Opal, is already converted to an environment friendly hybrid-electric schooner, and any future investments will be in developing a more sustainable fleet.

Currently, we operate eco-friendly whale watching and northern lights tours in Tromsø, every day, from the middle of October to the middle of February.

For longer adventures, we offer amazing expeditions in the Arctic on our traditional sailing ships. Great skiing and sailing expeditions in the Lyngen Alps in Tromsø and on Svalbard, and the once-in-a-lifetime week-long sailing in the magnificent Scoresby Sund in Greenland.

With our authentic fleet, highly qualified and dedicated crew with extensive sailing experience and wildlife knowledge, we seek to inspire people to reconnect with both history and nature.

We want to contribute to a sustainable future by:

  • Investing in green technology, like our Hybrid-electic Schooner, Opal
  • Training our staff in responsible conduct with whales and wildlife
  • Focusing on reducing our carbon footprint
