The voyage is the destination in itself

A trip with The Norðlýsið is about living in the moment, the realization that the voyage is the destination in itself. The feeling of the wind in your face, the sound of the waves breaking on the bow. The steady movements unique to a wooden ship. These lead to an equilibrium beyond your body reaching into your soul.


Onboard the Norðlýsið, focus is on sustainability and well-being. Relying on the winds whenever we can and using our knowledge of the winds as well as the currents, we invite our guests on the most comfortable journey possible. The onboard kitchen offers a menu cooked from scratch using the best ingredients available, preferably Faroese.


You are welcome to participate as much or as little as you wish, based on your abilities as well as your interests. And always carefully supervised by the attentive crew. Enjoy using your body and the feeling of your strength when the sails are hoisted. And who does not get goosebumps when the sails are set, and the engine powered off? This is when you are truly in sync; The Wind, The Ship and You.


We have time for laughter and silliness, as well as deep conversation and reflection. In bright sunshine, on grey days, in rain and fog. All days are good when the ship runs well.
