    We will provide you with a floatation suit that protects you from the wind and water, but it is wise to also wear some warm clothing underneath (preferably wool), in addition to hat and gloves. Also, please wear shoes/boots with a non-slippery sole, waterproof if possible.

Experience an incredible journey through nature to one of the world’s strongest tidal currents, Maelstrom, which inspired 19th century author Jules Verne when writing his famous novel, ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea’.

We travel in a sturdy, safe and fast inflatable boat. Our sea adventure first passes the dramatic wall of Lofoten and abandoned fishing villages. We then cross the water to visit islands populated by eagles, cormorants, gannets and seals.

Afterwards, we visit the legendary Maelstrom. Marvel at this natural phenomenon. It’s easy to see how the whirlpool captured Jules Verne’s imagination. There will be ample photo stops during the entire excursion.
