Sailing in the north of Norway is a great experience in the summer months, as it simply does not get dark.
The imposing huge cliffs & mountains are little threat, as they drop off underwater the same so its possible to sail right up close to the cliffs & still be in water so deep the depth sounder cannot get a reading of the bottom.
In the north the amazing Lofotan Islands are a special place, with 4,000 foot peaks rising straight out the sea, and amazing little coves tucked away where you can safely spend the night.
All the fishing villages have wooden racks where they dry the fish in huge racks. All very picturesque, but it does whiff a bit.
