Protected from the winds by the Lofoten Wall and surrounded by skerries and white sandy beaches, the remote island of Skrova is known as “Lofoten’s Hawaii”. Only reachable by boat, the small community is one of the last remaining fishing villages on the Norwegian coast, with only 200 inhabitants. Go ashore to visit the community, or enjoy a short hike in the mountain before returning to the ship.
Along the way we discover the central role that fish has played to the local communities and the Norwegian economy. From traditional fishing villages to modern fish farms. We will deploy our underwater drone to discover these pristine waters and their rich marine life. Above the surface there is a good chance of spotting the white-tailed eagle, Europe’s largest bird of prey.
Built specifically for discovering Arctic Norway, Brim offers comfortable, stable, silent and emission-free sailing with uninhibited views from multilevel indoor and outdoor decks, with live feeds from an underwater drone and hydrophone.
