In the Lofoten you will find a wide variety of beautiful kite spots, form flatwater beaches and lagoons to nice wave spots. Each day we will set sail for a new spot so you will experience something different everyday. Depending on the kite spot we will launch from the boat or take a short dinghy ride to shore. During the summer months you will see a steady NW wind which makes it perfect for kitesurfing and sailing. In this time of year we will also deal with the most comfortable temperatures of the year, however it will still be still be colder than you are probably used to. Because of the colder temperatures each kite session will take 1,5-2 hours maximum. A thick wetsuit, shoes, gloves and a cap are a must to keep warm.
Sail & Kite, what’s it like?
Living on a sailing vessel differs from any other type of holiday. Sailing itself brings uncertainties and asks for a flexible attitude towards the schedule, people and your expectations. From our own experience, guests feel more involved in the experience, if they participate and work together in the everyday activities which need to be done on board. The weather always takes the lead when travelling by boat. We want our guests to prepare for the unexpected.
What does a day look like?
The day will start with a healthy breakfast and there is the possibility to prepare a take away lunch. Everyday will consist of sailing to a new location and one or more kite sessions. It is dependent on the day and weather conditions in which order this will take place. Because of the colder temperatures each kite session will take 1,5-2 hours maximum and depending on the kite spot we will kite from the boat our take a short dinghy ride to shore. The kite instructor will be available each session for tips and lessons. In case of insufficient wind the Lofoten offers plenty of alternative activities like hiking, fishing, kayaking and wave surfing. After a spectacular day of kiting and sailing we gladly enjoy our well deserved Moondance beer and be surprised by the catch of the day!
Besides the unique destination another special aspect of this trip is that you will be staying on a sailboat. Exploring the Lofoten by boat not only gives the possibility to go kitesurfing in a different spot every day, but also at secluded spots only accessible by boat. Your house will be Sailing Vessel Moondance. A very durable expedition ship that uses the force of the wind to take you to the most remote locations. After each great kite session you are welcomed back on the boat to enjoy the best of what boatlife can offer you.
On board you will be welcomed by the crew consisting of one skipper, one crew member and a kite instructor. Our whole team is very experienced. Together we have over 30.000 nautical miles of sailing experience and have safely managed any thinkable situation at sea. The Moondance is owned by us and therefor we know all her ins and outs.
We have a capacity of 6 guests on board.
