Meet new people while exploring Finland and the world's largest archipelago. You will enjoy extra hours of daylight and lasting sunsets, all the while learning the ropes of sailing. Navigate the maze of small islands with new friends and enjoy all the beauty that the nature of Finland has to offer.

This experience is extremely laid back and flexible so you can spend your days how you choose. Mix time sailing with basking in the sun and exploring the less populated parts of the area before heading into town for a nice meal of local food. On this trip you will find that the skipper and the new people joining you on board love traveling and going on new adventures just as much as you do! The itinerary is not fixed and the plans are made according to the weather and winds just like real sailors should do!

This trip is unique because the skippers have a great focus on sustainable travel. We will limit plastics on board and collect plastic garbage as well as encourage the group to immerse themselves in the new cultures of these amazing places. Join us on an adventure where you will connect with nature and act like a local, respecting the Earth and the natives at each new spot we anchor. This wonderful experience will open your eyes to new cultures and you will leave it with new friends as well as a new outlook on travel.

Departure: Saturday 16:00
Kasnäs Harbor - Havsparkvägen 2, 25930 Kasnäs, Finland

LEARN TO SAIL
You will have the opportunity to really learn to sail on this trip. You will learn the curriculum of the RYA Competent Crew course on this adventure so you can be an active member on board!

DALSBRUK
On the first day we will meet here, provision the boat with what we want to eat and drink all week and start getting to know each other!

RYSKÄR
Here we will anchor in a sheltered spot surrounded by beautiful and untouched nature. The mossy granite and greenery on shore creates a pleasant backdrop for our evening on board. Just relax and take it all in.

BODÖ
In the bay here we will moor at a small wooden pier in a family-operated harbor. The general plan is to socialize and eat great food like fresh rolls that can be delivered to the boat! Check out the floating sauna if you are looking for more of a spa day.

KROKSKÄR
On the way from Bodo, we can drop anchor to go for a swim at the beach. The beach is located in a crescent shaped bay surrounded by green forest. Then we will sail on in search of a quiet place to spend the night away from civilization.

BRÄNNSKÄR
This little paradise has a small port, cafe with delicious homemade bread, theater performances and a place to try out archery. If you love walking, you will find 2.5km of walking paths through the forests which connect all the main attractions.

HAMNHOLMEN
Before getting to Hamnholmen, we will stop at Helsingsholmen to pick up some incredible smoked fish. Since this will most likely be the last anchorage away from it all, we can play music and sing all night long!

CHIEFTAINS HALL
Our final night will be spent feasting like the Vikings. Sit on the softest fur in front of a fire, drink, eat, and tell your favorite stories from the week with your new friends.

Return: Saturday 9:00

    I usually fly solo when traveling, and it never occurred to me to sign up for a package tour. But I took a gamble here and they exceeded my expectations. They have somehow figured out how to get adults to buy into a sincere spirit of group adventure and camaraderie without it ever feeling forced. And obviously, the locations are beautiful, the other people are engaging, the sailing is fun (you'll grow in confidence throughout the week), and it's clear that the Dominick and his team really care about the experience they are creating. You can easily do this trip alone, with friends, or with your significant other. I'm sure I'll sail with them again.

    Stop thinking about sailing with them... and just book it. You’ll love it!
    Your fellow crew members are a wonderful bunch – and we had the most laid-back skipper ever to roam the Med. The scenery is amazing and varied: you’ll moor-up in a port one night amongst super-yachts then drop anchor the following night in a nearly-deserted bay. You’ll learn so much if you’ve never sailed before, but it’s all really relaxed.
    I’m so glad I took the plunge – you will be too.
    Maybe see you out there one day soon...

    Badly organized trip, old boat not prepared with equipment for the entire crew and unprofessional skipper (untrustworthy, drinking durin the sailing, etc.).
    It could have been an excellent week, it's a pity.
